Lucky for Long Islanders, this time around, the snowfall wasn't so bad! Nassau and Western Suffolk received a few inches of accumulation, but nothing compared to the major snowfalls that we've been getting hit with time and time again this winter. As we entered the afternoon, the snow turned to ice rain in some areas, and a wet, wintery mix, which is supposed to continue into this evening. Thankfully, we're supposed to experience somewhat of a reprieve - temperatures are going to rise tomorrow during the day, and say in the 40s and 50s during the day time for the rest of the week.
Here are the reported snow totals for Long Island, taken between 9:10 - 10:40 AM this morning, as reported by the National Weather Service:
- Bayville - 2.1 inches
- Levittown - 1.8 inches
