Light Snow Overnight Should Not Affect Morning Commute Much

Only about an inch is expected in the latest snow go-round.

Another blast of winter is headed to Downstate New York overnight, but accumulation is expected to be only an inch, with sunshine on the morning of Feb. 10.

According to the National Weather Service, light snow will begin to fall in mid-to-late afternoon.

The light but steady snow is expected to continue into the early nighttime hours, with the entire region dry by daybreak.

Accumulation will be just about an inch across the entire area.

That's not the end of it: The potential exists for another storm system to head up the coast mid-to-late week, although "uncertainty" still exists as to possible temperatures; the precipitation could possibly present itself in the area as rain.

That would be perfect - if i was still living in Lynbrook. Since i moved to Oceanside, i've yet to see a grain of sand dropped on any secondary or tertiary street. Its reckless and offputting to anyone that has to walk to the rail road station in the morning.

People keep demanding low taxes, then they want great public services. You can't have both. Make a decision.

High taxes, 64% of them are teachers and administrators, decrease them, increase services..easy fix

If you take the time to check Greenports Highway Dept Budget. You will find moneys budgeted for clearing snow, more then sufficent to clear the snow piles from the downtown area. Was that money used for other things, say maybe a festival to benefit the few. Did the board party on?
