And now, the latest weather forecast from our very own meteorologist, Mr. Maroney!

12/13/17 Wednesday Evening

A decent 2-3 inches of snow tomorrow morning. And could be more in some spots on LI. Should be a messy morning. Leave extra time, and watch the news carefully!

12/11/17 Monday Afternoon

The first storm of the season went as expected.  Some of the news media made more of the storm than was needed, but the first snowfall gets everyone excited.  The active winter weather continues this week.  There will be another very cold air mass coming into our area on Wednesday and Thursday; get out your winter jackets!  Tuesday will be warm with some light rain which will usher in the cold front.  Friday is the next possibility of snow;  indications of a coastal storm are possible so stay tuned.

12/8/17 Friday Afternoon

The first wintery weather is at our doorstep. Models are coming into better agreement but still some disparity as too how much snow the area will get.  A general 3 – 5 inches with snow all day, starting in the morning and lasting into the evening is the most reasonable forecast.  The roads will be wet but not snow packed, they still haven’t cooled off and the temperature will be above freezing, about 33-34 degrees, for much of the day.  Snow will be mainly on grassy surfaces, cars will need to be cleaned off but traveling shouldn’t be too difficult.  There are some indications of getting some more snow, > 5 inches, but I’m not too inclined to go in that direction.  The storm clears out in the evening and Sunday is just cold.  The next storm is Tuesday evening and Wednesday; another close call, which brings in very cold air over the rest of the week.

12/5/17 Tuesday Afternoon

A cold, wintry air mass and a storm will form off the coast by Friday. Depending on the track, models are all over as to location and intensity, but we could get some snow. The ground is still warm, along with the ocean temperatures, but snow can happen as we saw after Sandy in 2012. What is certain is that the cold air will blanket the area, and it looks to be entrenched for the duration of the winter.

One reinforcing cold front after another. Stay tuned for updates on the storm on Friday/Saturday and another one possible for Sunday/Monday (looks to be farther offshore, but stronger).

The winter outlook looks to be active and cold.

Some of the dates I am looking at:

Dec 10, 16, 19, 26 – cold vacation week.
Jan 1, 7 – 10, 16, 23 – 25 (overall a cold and stormy month)

The key for us will be the storm tracks. Too close and we get rain; too far away and we get a dusting.
