Long Island Weather: Snow to Snarl Commute
Long Island will see more snow Wednesday that will affect both Wednesday night and Thursday morning’s commutes.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that runs from 5 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday.
Meteorologists forecast anywhere from two to five inches of snow accumulation, with the highest amounts across Eastern Long Island. Winds will be 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
There is a low probably that heavy snow banding could leave four to eight inches of snow.
Officials warn that travel conditions may become hazardous due to reduced visibilities and snow-covered roads. The worst conditions will be from Wednesday evening during rush hour into the overnight, but drivers can also expect snowy roads during Thursday morning’s commute.
The Long Island Rail Road is providing eight extra early-afternoon trains from Penn Station Wednesday for commuters who may want to leave early as a result of the winter storm. The trains will supplement the regular off-peak service and will depart from Penn between 2:09 p.m. and 3:48 p.m. on the Babylon, Port Jefferson, Port Washington and Far Rockaway branches.
The area will get a respite from snow from Thursday through to President’s Day Weekend with clear skies and warmer temperatures.
