Storm watch still in effect, up to 6 inches expected

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch from 6 p.m. Sunday to noon Monday, with meteorologists now calling for snow accumulations of about three to six inches across Long Island.

This is lower than earlier predictions of up to eight inches.

The forecast also includes 10 to 15 mph winds, with gusts up to 25 mph. Temperatures will remain in the teens and 20s.

The storm comes amid what’s already amounted to the third-snowiest winter on Long Island in the past three decades.

Lauren Nash, a meteorologist with the NWS, said Friday the weather service is seeing what appears to be “not your typical coastal storm. It’s more of an elongated kind of storm, so it should be pretty uniform across Long Island.”
