Advisory: Late Winter Storm May Hit South Shore

The National Weather Service issues Winter Weather Advisory forecasting some 2 to 4 inches of snow.

Old Man Winter will not give up on the 2012-2013 winter season – one more storm is still ahead for the south shore communities from Blue Point to West Sayville.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory through Tuesday afternoon ahead of a snowstorm.

The storm, approaching the east coast from the west, is not hitting right now but meteorologists are forecasting an accumulation of two to three inches, with some isolated spots seeing up to four inches.

Snowfall is harder to come by during the early Spring, as the sun's angle increase on the planet's surface, warming it more easily than during the Winter. A warmer surface does not allow for accumulation to occur as easily as it normally would in January or February.

A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect until early Tuesday morning for Babylon Village as well, as tides could be two feet above normal. Waves along the bay-facing areas are expected to be slightly above normal, but no where near the six to nine foot breaking waves along ocean-facing areas.

Winds are expected to be blustery, but not damaging during the storm at 15 to 25 mph and gusts to 35 mph possible.

Stay tuned to Patch as we continue to monitor this late winter storm.
