The snow storm that hit Long Island Sunday and continued throughout the day on Monday has left such a wet, wintery mess on the roadways that many districts across Long Island have decided to delay opening until later in the morning, giving the plows more time to clear the roads, and letting rush hour traffic pass by.

Currently, the National Weather Service has a Special Weather Statement in effect, warning of low temperatures Monday night that will likely create hazardous, icy road conditions. The NWS is warning locals to take extra caution when on the road, which is why schools across LI are taking this extra precaution.

To find out if your local district will have a delayed start or classes cancelled, please visit LongIsland.com’s School Closings Page.

Unfortunately, we won't quite be out of the woods yet tomorrow - another Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at 12 AM Wednesday morning, and will stay in effect through 5 PM that evening. On Wednesday, LI can expect additional snowfall and a contiuation of the icy, snowy conditions on the roadways.
