Update on the weekend storm, the potential storm for early next week, and the LI forecast:
While all of the models have the storm for Friday into Saturday slide off the mid-Atlantic coast (potentially bring snow to inland areas of North Carolina) rather than come up the coast just offshore, it still has to be watched. It's still 5 days away, and 11 of the 50 Euro ensemble members have it close enough to bring at least 2 inches of snow to Long Island.
The next storm to watch will then be for early next week. While the main Euro run is still showing a snowstorm for Long Island next Tuesday night, actually less of its ensemble members are showing the snowstorm when compared to this Saturday.
LONG ISLAND FORECAST:
Today (Monday): Partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the low 40's. Wind out of the north at around 10 mph.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with lows in the low to mid 30's.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Partly to mostly cloudy with highs around 40 degrees.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs around 40 degrees.
Thursday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low 40's.
Friday: Mostly sunny with highs around 40 degrees.
Saturday: Partly cloudy with highs in the upper 30's, but there will be a storm offshore. If it trends closer to the coast, rain or snow will be possible.
Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 30's.
