Get ready for Old Man Winter's biggest return so far this Winter season!
An arctic cold front that started pushing across the Northeast on Sunday afternoon will continue to blow cold air from the North, dropping temperatures and bringing Lindenhurst some snowfall throughout the week.
The cold front will drop temperatures from the 50s residents enjoyed this past weekend all the way down to 33 degrees for Monday, 27 degrees on Tuesday, 24 degrees on Wednesday and 27 degrees on Thursday, according to National Weather Service forecasts.
The normal high for Long Island during this time of the year is around 38 degrees.
Evening lows will be even colder as temperatures are expected to drop into the mid-teens during the week at night. Wind chills will be a major factor, with light winds making it feel several degrees colder.
A light snow storm will push through the area on Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning, dropping anywhere from one to four inches of snow across Lindenhurst. The snow should end before Tuesday 12 p.m.
Winds should remain light during the duration of the storm, but heavy snowfall can create hazardous driving conditions, such as black ice and covered roadways.
Snow is also forecast by the NWS on Wednesday and Thursday evening, although there are likely showers at that time. A storm is being monitored by forecast models for the end of the week, but the exact track, amount of precipitation and timing of that storm is yet to be determined.
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook as of 12 p.m. Monday, January 21, for the imminent snowfall.
Patch will continue to monitor the storm, and keep residents updated if any changes arise.
