3-5 Inches of Snow Possible for Long Island

3-5 Inches of Snow Possible for Long Island

Forecasters are telling Northern Virginia residents to keep an eye on a storm system heading for the region early next week that includes the slight chance for accumulating snow. To date, Mid-Missouri has only seen 1.6 inches of snow, which has placed it in the record books as the second-least snowiest winter on record during the winter months.

Blowing Snow: Wind-driven snow that reduces visibility and causes significant drifting. However, unsafe driving conditions could develop around the mountains.

Roads were still slush-covered as of this afternoon, but the colder temperatures were expected to lead to hazardous driving conditions over night.

The National Weather Service is not issuing measurable snow totals in its forecast for New Canaan at this time, but is forecasting snow from Monday night through Wednesday morning. Overnight lows bottom out in the low-mid 20's and will make for a cold start Saturday morning.

- Not as gusty, but still windy today through Saturday. Saturday will be around 29 degrees during the day before falling into the teens at night.

Gusty winds will bring single digit wind chills all day, with little improvement, as they are expected to hover near zero tonight into Sunday. Skies turn mostly sunny throughout today as breezy winds between 5-15 miles per hour ramps up.

Polish Leader Congratulates Tusk on Reelection as European Council President
But no such requirement for unanimity exists, and Tusk won his re-election 27-1 (the one belonging, obviously, to Poland ). Poland had argued that the decision should be delayed because of its displeasure with Tusk, a bitter political rival.

Winds: 5 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts up to 25 miles per hour. The low at night will be around 18. By Saturday morning, we'll begin to piece together the forecast details, and I should then be able to elaborate on our "best case" and "worst case" scenarios. Sunday won't offer any respite, Tongue said, as temperatures will remain below freezing.

With temperatures expected to rise into the 40s, Prunty said Mother Nature could help clear the snow with some of that snow melting off roads.

Forecasts are starting to come together for the storm that should impact the area early next week. "There is also a low threat for moderate coastal flooding at this time".

A third possibility is that the storm is slower to develop than expected and ends up producing modest snowfall in the D.C. area and a bigger storm from Philadelphia to Boston.

After a couple of weeks featuring above-average temperatures, the Granite State has multiple snow chances over the next few days. Lake effect snow will continue the snow into Tuesday for far eastern Wisconsin.
