Right on the heel's of Sunday's surprise snow storm, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory, as well as a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Nassau County, and Western Suffolk County, which will go into effect Tuesday afternoon at 3 PM, and stay in effect until 2 AM Wednesday morning.

Snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is expected during that time, as well as trace amounts of ice.  Percipitation will begin with snow tomorrow afternoon, which will then turn into a wintery mix of sleet and freezing rain in the evening, and eventually taper off into freezing rain by midnight on Tuesday. Drivers are advised to take caution, as roadways will be slippery due to the snow, sleet, and ice, and visibility may be low. The NWS warns that travel may become difficult at times.

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