Still dealing with the aftermath of Friday’s nor’easter, Shelter Island and the North Fork could get another storm Wednesday — but this time heavy snow is in the forecast, not rain.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting 6 to 9 inches of snow, with localized amounts up to 12 inches possible by mid-week. The NWS issued a winter storm watch, starting late Tuesday through Thursday at 6 a.m. for southeast New York, southern Connecticut and northeast New Jersey.
A coastal flooding advisory is in effect for Monday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. with minor flooding expected during high tides Monday.
