Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

Pets waiting for new homes at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.

LI's Adorable Adoptables is a weekly column by Allison Matos, a lifelong Long Island resident who has been advocating animal adoption since 2012. Allison's weekly posts highlight local animals in need of adoption, and cover general animal welfare topics as well.

With so many wonderful dogs and cats to choose from, it’s tough picking a new best friend.  For the month of May, the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter is waiving all adoption fees in an effort to find their dogs and cats new furever homes.

For more information about the animals available for adoption, check out or better yet, head down to the shelter and save a life today!

Remember, if you can’t adopt, donate. If you can’t donate, volunteer.  Thanks for reading!
