A alberta clipper that is currently dropping snow in Ohio will continue to track east tonight into tomorrow. Tomorrow afternoon the storm will explode off the coast into a extremely powerful nor'easter. Unlike some of the previous storm we have had the storm will be much to far east to cause any extreme problems but the storm will still be very disruptive. Below is a quick cast summary of the storm.
Timing-Snow will begin around noon tomorrow. Snow will become moderate to heavy at times during the evening. Sunday the snow will gradually taper off during the day. Very early Sunday morning eastern Long Island will likely have blizzard conditions at times. Winds will be very strong Sunday.
Snow amounts-See winter weather page for snow forecast.
Coastal impacts- I don't expect any major coastal problems. Nevertheless waves will be big and some small coastal erosion is possible.
Alerts- The entire area is under a winter weather advisory. Western Suffolk is under a winter storm watch (which in my opinion should be a warning) and eastern Suffolk is under a winter storm warning. The entire area is also under a high wind watch which will likely become a warning tomorrow. While I expect blizzard conditions for Suffolk county the National Weather Service has surprisingly not issued blizzard warnings or even watches.
Beyond this storm there will be multiple chances of snow. Looks like this winter really is making a turn around!
