Winter Storm Watch

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Nassau County from Tuesday Evening through Wednesday afternoon.

Snow should develop across the county from 8-9pm Tuesday evening. Expect snow to last through the day on Wednesday before finally coming to an end by 1-2am Thursday morning. The heaviest snow should fall from 11pm-12am Tuesday night through 10am Wednesday morning. Expect the activity to taper to scattered light snow showers or flurries for the rest of the day Wednesday and into Wednesday night. Snow accumulations of 5-10 inches are expected right now. There is potential for slightly higher snow totals if the track is just right, but this is a little uncertain at this time. Winds will be relatively light through the night on Tuesday. Winds should pick up Wednesday out of the northwest with gusts to 25-30 mph as it looks right now. As far as tidal departures, the winds should be light on the side of the storm that would pile water up along the coasts of your county. We may get maybe 1-1.5 feet above normal and this should not be enough to produce any coastal flooding.
