5 Inches of Snow Fell on Long Island by Noon Monday
The agency released unofficial snowfall tallies for the tristate area, which is under a winter storm warning through 7 p.m. Monday. The tallies, which NWS compiled from local reports, were the latest as of 11:30 a.m. and included some of the highest amounts in the region.
Five inches of snow was recorded shortly after 10 a.m. in Albertson and shortly before 11 a.m. in Mount Sinai, which were both tied for the early highest amounts.
Parts of New York City topped out at 4.5 inches so far, Connecticut had 4.1 inches and New Jersey fell a tenth of an inch shy of tying LI with 4.9 inches.
On the low end in Nassau, Malverne had 3 inches at 10 a.m. and in Suffolk, Patchogue counted 1.5 inches at 9:15 a.m.
Much of the Island had about 3 inches by noon, according to the unofficial early reports.
Western LI and NYC were also under a winter storm watch for Wednesday, when another snow storm is forecast to hit the area with a third this week expected this weekend.
