Forecasters say the storm is expected to dump three to six inches of snow on the watch area between Friday night and Saturday evening, and some areas could be blanketed with up to eight inches of snow.

The largest snow accumulation totals in the state were in Suffolk County (19.3 inches in Bay Shore), Nassau County (14.4 inches in Old Bethpage) and Queens (13.7 in Bayside). Take comfort in knowing even in years when the snow is very deep in March it still is usually gone in that first week of April.

The storm passed east over the mid-Atlantic states before heading out to sea and then curving north toward Atlantic Canada. Around 10 PM, cooler air wraps into the system and will begin to switch over to a wintry mix of rain/snow/sleet, before it changes over to all snow overnight.
