Whiteout On Long Island

Officials lifted the travel ban on most Long Island roads early this morning, but wind-whipped snow continues to swirl and snowfall totals continue to rise.

According to the National Weather Service, the storm is far from over, especially in Suffolk County, which will remain under a blizzard warning through midnight. Weather officials said the storm rolled in approximately 50-miles east of its projected track, leaving snowfall totals less than predicted in Nassau County, but right on target in Suffolk.

Suffolk has seen upwards of 25-inches of snow in some spots, while Nassau totals top off at around 15-inches. The wind continues to be an issue in both counties, with wind gusting 20 to 40 mph.

The latest snowfall projections from the Nassau Weather Service still call for 2-3 feet of snow to fall across much of Suffolk County before the storm departs Tuesday night. In Nassau, the range is now expected to be 14-24 inches, with the lowest amounts in western Nassau.
