Snowfall Totals for Friday’s Blizzard on Long Island

Nature & Weather, Local News, Travel & Local Attractions, Seasonal & Current Events

Snowfall totals from the morning reached as high as 12 inches on parts of the Island.

The first winter storm of the year is also the largest of the season so far. Both Nassau and Suffolk saw heavy snowfall with totals so far reaching up to 12 inches in some towns.

The LIE was closed during the early morning hours after Governor Cuomo declared a State of Emergency, and the LIRR deployed extra manpower to clear off the stations and tracks so public transport could run as efficiently as possible in the wintery mess. Large quantities of snow will, however, force the trains to run on a weekend schedule. Many roads are still not completely clear, so caution is advised for those hitting the road today.
