Today, Long Island has experienced what many are calling the first "real" snow of the winter - unlike the light snowfalls we experienced earlier this season that quickly dissipated, today's snowfall has delivered heavier accumulation to both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. According to the National Weather Service, LI is in for 3 to 5 inches of snow today, and the winter weather will continue to create hazardous conditions on the road throughout the day, and into the evening. As a precaution, numerous school districts plan to let out class early today, and cancel after school programs.

As kids across Long Island keep their fingers crossed for a snow day, commuters Island-wide are dreading the drive home - the roads tonight will be icy, and the visibility low - a dangerous combination, especially during rush hour. Be sure to take extra care when driving, and drive slowly.
