While later in the afternoon today here on Long Island we can look forward to getting only an inch or so of snow, this upcoming weekend is a whole different story. According to a hazardous weather outlook report from the National Weather Service, it is predicted that Long Island, and the entire Interstate-95 Northeast corridor, will be getting its first heavy snowfall and snow accumulation of the season on Saturday, January 24th.

Accumulations have the potential of reaching up to 6 inches of snow.

Saturday’s storm is currently being labeled as a potential Nor’easter but as of right now it is still too early to be able to state specifics. The amount of precipitation will be highly dependent on the power and exact track of the low.

Although no School Closings or Delays have been announced yet, be sure to check our Long Island School Closures Page for the latest updates on your local district closings.
