Don't put away the snowblowers just yet.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a weak snowstorm to blanet the area on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, leaving behind 2-to-5 inches across Long Island.Follow Long Beach Patch on Facebook.
While that seems minimal compared to the Feb. 8 blizzard
, the snow will accumulate enough to cause treacherous driving conditions on the morning of Valentine's Day and add to the blizzard cleanup headache.
Unlike the last storm, winds should not be an issue this time. Forecasts call for light winds around 8 to 13 mph, possibly gusting to 18 at times. It will not create whiteout conditions, but might cause moderate blowing of newly fallen snow.
The storm, part of a low-pressure system, will bring behind it a cold-front that will help shift temperatures back for the end of the week, as highs will drop to the mid-30's ahead of what could be the next talked about winter storm - this weekend.
As of Tuesday, the National Weather Service has not issued any advisories or warnings associated with Wednesday's forecast.
