Jack Frost will strike the Miller Place-Rocky Point area again on Wednesday night – though not nearly as badly as last week.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Suffolk County and southern Nassau County from 5 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday as another winter storm passes through the tri-state area.
The snow is expected to pick up early Thursday morning, around 3:00, with anywhere from a half inch in Miller Place to up to three points further east, expected to accumulate in the area. The advisory warns, however, heavier bands of snow within the storm could produce locally heavier ranges from 4 to 8 inches.
Winds should remain lighter than the Feb. 8 blizzard – 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Winds will still be strong enough to reduce visibilities to as low as a half-mile and possibly have white-out conditions for periods.
Roadways could be covered in snow or ice for the Thursday morning commute and the National Weather Services warns that motorists should expect delays.
