The third nor’easter to hit Long Island in two weeks brought between one and 18 inches of snow to parts of the region, meteorologists said.
Long Island could get buried in 12 to 18 inches of snow Monday evening throughout Tuesday, according to forecasters. The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a Blizzard Watch for Long Island, New York City, and other parts of the region in effect from late Monday night through Tuesday evening.
The winter storm warning means “severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring,” the weather service said on its website.
Forecasters are calling for up to three inches of snow on Friday, followed by a brisk weekend with temperatures at or near freezing.
