While the white stuff seems to be falling hard now, it won’t last for long. There is sunshine in the forecast for Friday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
“The snow will probably last through mid-morning and we could see one-to-two inches out of it,” said meteorologist David Stark, noting that it is a powdery type snow due to the cold temperatures.
“But we should see some sunshine before the day is over,” he said.
Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 20s into the afternoon, Mr. Stark said. The agency has issued a wind advisory for Suffolk County through 1 p.m., though Mr. Stark said wind gusts have begun to subside.
Gusts between 40 and 45 mph were detected across the East End, which as of 9 a.m. had dipped to 20-25 mph, he said.
No snow is expected this weekend, Mr. Stark said.
