New Blizzard Sets Sights on Suffolk

National Weather Service says we will likely be hit with up to two feet of snow starting Tuesday night.

Say it ain't snow!

With snow still piled up in areas from the , Long Island may got socked with another white punch as the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for tonight into Wednesday afternoon.

Weather service officials said Suffolk County could get blasted with between six and 12 inches of snow, along with winds gusting up to 35 mph. 

"There is going to be some heavy, heavy bands of snow," said Marcie Katcher, a spokeswoman at the weather's service's Long Island office. 

Snowfall is expected to be the heaviest late Tuesday night into early Wednesday, Katcher said. 

The storm, which is currently tracking up the East Coast after dumping snow and ice as far south as Florida, will not come close to rivaling the Dec. 26 blizzard, Katcher said, but she still advised residents to "take all precautions necessary to insure that you are safe during that type of weather." 

Northport Patch will continue to follow this story including closings.
