8 or More Inches of Snow Could Slam East End Thursday

The National Weather Service has bumped up predicted snowfall during a winter storm expected to hit late Wednesday night and last through Thursday.

After predicting 6 inches originally, now the weather service says between 6 and 8 inches of snow are in the forecast for the East End—and possibly more. However, in Montauk snowfall totals will be slightly less, between 4 and 6 inches.

The snow will be especially wet and heavy, posing a risk that flat roofs could collapse.

Snow may change to snow during the day Thursday before changing back to snow that night. Sustained winds of 20 to 25 miles per hour and gusts of 30 to 35 miles per hour will create “near blizzard conditions,” according to the weather service.

Thursday’s morning and evening commutes are expected to be hazardous.
