Winter storm Skylar is bringing an anticipated 6 to 12 inches of snow to the East End of Long Island, reports News 12. This is the third major nor’easter so far just for the month of March that Long Island has seen.

A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. tonight, March 13.

At its worst, an expected 1 to 2 inches will fall per hour out on the East End of Long Island, with it being particularly bad between Southampton and East Hampton, where there will be moderate to heavy snowfall.

The twin forks will be seeing the worst of the storm as far as Long Island is concerned, as central Suffolk County will be seeing between 4 and 8 inches, and Nassau County is expecting about 3 to 6 inches.

As always with snow storms, it’s recommended to not leave your home if you don’t have to as there will be limited visibility and the roads could be hazardous to drive on.
