Winter Storm Warning Canceled; Winter Weather Advisory in Effect for East Hampton

National Weather Service now says there will be less snow than originally expected.

A winter storm warning issued for East Hampton Wednesday has been canceled, according to the National Weather Service.

Joey Picca, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office at Upton, said the winter storm warning has been replaced with a winter weather advisory for the East End.

Snowfall accumulation is now expected to be between 3 and 7 inches across eastern Suffolk County; areas on the far East End could receive higher amounts of snow, Picca said.

A wind advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday, with 20- to 30-mile-per-hour winds expected and gusts of up to 50 miles an hour.

Coastal flood warnings remain in effect through 8 p.m. Wednesday and from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. Thursday. All the shores of Long Island, Picca said, were affected by either coastal flood warnings or coastal flood advisories Wednesday night.
