December 13, 2013 - The National Weather Service has placed Nassau County and Suffolk County under a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 AM Saturday until 6 AM Sunday. As another storm front approaches, meteorologists are expecting 2-4 inches of snow to fall in Suffolk and up to 5 inches of new accumulation in Nassau. A layer of ice is likely to accumulate as well.
The storm will start dropping snow on Long Island around 10 AM Saturday morning and continue until 10 PM. From that point, a mixture of snow and sleet is predicted to last until 1 AM, and freezing rain will fall until 4 o’clock Sunday morning. Temperatures will hover around 30° for most of Saturday before warming back up to 38° Sunday Afternoon, but will dip back down into the low 20’s by the end of the weekend.
The NWS has advised drivers to be prepared for visibility of half-a-mile or less from Saturday afternoon into the evening. Fallen snow could also become heavy at night, and roads are likely to become icy.
