Snowfall Totals for February 15 – East End Hit Hard

Nature & Weather, Local News, Seasonal & Current Events

Much of Nassau County saw only a light snowfall, but totals neared eight inches on the other side of the Island.

Saturday saw yet another in what has seemed an endless string of snowstorms this winter. Though this storm was timely enough not to interfere with most children’s schooling, it still made for difficult travel and icy road conditions—a plane at LaGuardia Airport was even grounded for the night after being struck by a de-icing vehicle on the runway.

Nassau County and Western Suffolk were fortunate enough to only see a small amount of accumulation, topping out at just over 3 inches for Nassau, but Eastern Suffolk saw as much as 7.5 inches of fresh snow pile up on top of all that had already fallen in the past two weeks. Below are the accumulation totals for Long Island, as reported by the National Weather Service.

More snow may fall today after 3 PM, but it will be only a light flurry with no significant accumulation. On Monday, however, there is now an 80% chance of precipitation with less than an inch accumulating at night, continuing into Tuesday afternoon with 1-3 inches possible. The snow may change to rain as temperatures reach the high 30’s after 2 PM.
