Across the Tri-State Area, locals and travelers woke up to a windy wintery mess this morning, with high winds and heavy flurries coating the Island with a sheet of white. While Long Island didn't get the worst of it in terms of snow, some areas definitely saw some pile up! In Nassau County, Levittown received over 2 inches of snow, and in Suffolk, Melville topped the list with 2 inches.
Nearby in Manhattan's Central Park, 1.3 inches of snowfall was recorded, in Queens totals of 2.2, and in the Bronx, they received totals of around 1.7 inches of snow.
