Update on the LI snow showers and the snow threat is for the central Mid-Atlantic early next week:
It still looks like some snow showers or a period of light to moderate snow this morning for Long Island with some places possibly receiving a coating to a half-inch. The timing is generally from 6 AM to 10:30.
It will be a very cold (but dry) weekend in the northeast; especially on Saturday with windy conditions.
All indications continue to point to the storm for early next week heading west to east through the central Mid-Atlantic and off the coast with the snow shield staying well south of Long Island. Since it's 5 to 6 days out, it certainly bears watching, especially since some Euro ensemble members still show a snowstorm for Long Island.
The potential for snowstorm late next week or weekend doesn't look great either, but it's still early.
