Snow turning to sleet, freezing rain
Think of it this way: At least it’s not another foot of snow. But another storm is set to hit Long Island this morning at sunrise, with weather forecasters predicting between 2 to 5 inches of snow and up to a half-inch of ice accumulation.
According to the National Weather Service, the storm will kick off with light snow and sleet followed by a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain into the late evening, turning later to rain tomorrow.
The weather is set to wreak havoc on traveling throughout the area and snow and ice accumulations will make for dangerous road conditions.
The Long Island Power Authority is increasing its staff today in anticipation of potential power outages and will have repair crews on standby throughout the region.
Luckily, sunshine is set to return on Thursday.
