The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory and Hazardous Weather Outlook for both Long Island and New York City. Both advisories will go into effect at 10 PM tonight and will last through 2 PM on Friday.

3-5 inches of snow are expected throughout the area, with tracking indicating that Nassau and Suffolk Counties should anticipate 4 inches. Warmer temperatures will keep the initial precipitation as rain tonight, but snow will begin falling by Friday morning and should peak during the morning commuting hours before ending altogether by late morning.

For travelers, the early-morning transition into snow will make for a slow and messy Friday morning commute. Additionally, as visibility will be about a half-mile at times, drivers are urged to take caution when on the roads.

Although no Friday delays or closings have been announced as of yet, you can get the latest updates on School Closures for Long Island right here.
