WINTER STORM WARNING in effect for Long Island through 7PM. Snow will be moderate to heavy through 4PM. Snow showers continue through 7PM before ending this evening with clearing skies. Totals will be 5 to 8 inches with the lower amounts for the East End.
The weather closed most schools throughout the island and caused headaches with every method of traffic. While the numbers have been low so far, PSEG Long Island has been dealing with power outages throughout the island and expect to remain busy thanks to the wet, heavy snow.
The news does not get any better as we move through the week. Another winter storm is heading our way for Wednesday with the possibility for a major weather event this weekend. Keep your radio locked to 1039 LI News Radio for the latest from the Weather Center with John Wetherbee.
