The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook and Wind Advisory for Long Island and much of the Northeast. Winds blowing between 20 and 31 mph are expected from Tuesday evening through Wednesday night, with gusts as high as 47 mph.  

2-4 inches of precipitation are likely to fall over the next day, with a possibility of snow Wednesday night. Even if snow does not follow the period of heavy rain on Long Island, it is still likely to occur upstate, potentially slowing or grounding flights traveling to Long Island, and making the trip more difficult for those trying to get to the Island by car.

The National Weather Service cautions that heavy rains could cause flooding of small streams and other areas.

The day before Thanksgiving marks what is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year, making the incoming storm one which could have strong consequence for those trying to return home or visit relatives. Thanksgiving day itself will be breezy with a high of 36° and a low of 25°. Skies are expected to be mostly clear through the rest of the weekend.
