A Special Weather Statement has been issued by the National Weather Service this afternoon warning drivers in Nassau and Suffolk Counties to be extra careful on the road - the freezing temperatures that are expected this evening combined with the low level moisture in the air and on the ground can create driving hazards including icy patches roads, especially those that have not been salted. Drivers are also cautioned to take extra care when driving on bridges and overpasses this evening, as it is likely that roads will be slick.
The past few days have been a wintery mix of rain, snow, and slush, and it looks like this trend is going to continue, with Tuesday bringing us up to two inches of snowfall. Tomorrow, we'll most likely see snow before 1 PM, followed by more rain throughout the afternoon. The temperature will again take a dip in the evening, and although it will continue to stay cold, the precipitation is not predicted to continue this week past Tuesday afternoon.
