A winter storm warning was issued for eastern Suffolk County for 10 p.m. Thursday night through 4 p.m. Friday, with accumulations of snow predicted to be between 4 to 7 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow is expected to begin falling early Friday morning until about noon, according to the National Weather Service, making the roads hazardous and slippery during the morning commute. Temperatures are expected to be near freezing and visibility could be between one-quarter to one-half mile at times.

On Thursday, a representative for the National Weather Service in Upton said the snow is expected to be “heavy” and is not going to blow around much. On Friday evening, he said, any standing water is expected to freeze quickly, and on Saturday morning, windchills will be near zero degrees.

The National Weather Service said a winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected, and could bring significant amounts of snow that will make travel dangerous. The National Weather Service suggests that an extra flashlight, food and water should be brought along if a person must travel.

A few of my wife's daffodils popped up just Wednesday, as well as her crocus. Imagine their surprise this morning!
