Winter Storm Watch Issued For East End

Jan 6, 2011 10:24 AM

East End residents could see significant snowfall Friday morning and into the evening, but not nearly as much accumulation as last month’s blizzard.

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a winter storm watch for Suffolk County—and all of southeastern New York—in effect from Friday morning through late Friday night. Snowfall may be heavy at times during the afternoon and evening, generally bringing 2 to 5 inches—and up to 7 inches—of accumulation on the East End.

A light snow is predicted to begin early Friday morning, according to the weather service, and is expected to develop into heavier snow bands in the afternoon and evening. At this time, it is uncertain where the snow bands will develop.

Visibility will generally be 1 to 3 miles, but could shrink to a half-mile or less in heavier snow bands.

Let's see now, glaciers and Arctic ice pack melting, more open water, wouldn't that equal cold, dry air, sucking up alot of moisture?

Sometimes I wonder how the ice cold meltwater which used to flow into the Gulf of Mexico before all the dams, might have an effect on weather too...
