Long Island Nor’easter May Bring 5 Inches of Snow

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A nor’easter is forecast to blanket Long Island in two to five inches of snow, a mix of sleet, freezing rain and ice this weekend, with accumulations depending upon the storm’s path.The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 12 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday for the New York metro area including most of LI, except for the East End.“This will be a fast moving system,” the agency’s Upton-based meteorologists said in a statement. “There is still some uncertainty with the precipitation type and amounts due to the storm track and intensity.”The storm, which is expected to impact much of the Northeast on its way up from the South, is predicted to start as heavy snow, switch to a wintry mix and then taper off as snow again, forecasters said.Visibility will be a half mile or less at times and roads will be slippery, making travel potentially dangerous. The storm may cause tree limbs to fall on utility wires, possibly causing power outages.Temperatures will be in the high 20s early Saturday morning and will reach a high in the low 30s in the afternoon, meaning the snow should stick.Once the storm passes, sunny skies with temps in the high 30s are forecast for Sunday before a 50-percent chance of snow returns Monday.last_img read more

With Chris Paul gone, Clippers turn attention to Blake Griffin

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The first domino fell Tuesday in what has already been a dramatic offseason for the Clippers.Chris Paul’s decision to team up with James Harden in Houston not only left the Clippers without one of the most admired point guards in the modern NBA, but also ramped up the team’s desire to re-sign his All-Star running mate for the past six seasons, forward Blake Griffin.“We think we’re in a great spot,” Coach Doc Rivers said during an appearance Thursday on “Lunchtime with Roggin and Rodney” on KLAC-AM (570), “but there are a lot of teams that want him.”Griffin will likely start hearing from those teams at 9:01 p.m. Friday, when both he and the Clippers’ six other free agents can begin negotiating with teams. They cannot sign until the league’s moratorium period ends on July 6. The Clippers’ desire to build around Griffin now is complicated by how much the team can pay him ($170 million over five years) versus how much they might want to. At what point, could another team swoop in and sign him to a maximum four-year deal worth $135 million?“I don’t think it’s about money, though,” Rivers said. “I think it’s about legacy, trust in the organization, that we can build that and be a championship team.”Rivers said Clippers owner Steve Ballmer “has the guts to pay the luxury tax” to assemble a championship team and that “there’s not a lot of guys that will do that in our league.”Griffin was drafted first overall by the Clippers in 2009. In seven seasons, he has averaged 21.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. Last season he added nearly two 3-point attempts per game to his repertoire.While his injury history, including a broken toe suffered in the first round against the Utah Jazz this spring, might deter some teams from investing heavily in Griffin, he is still expected to command attention from teams including the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Phoenix Suns.Some around the league have questioned the wisdom in investing in the 28-year-old Griffin. If he, too, departs, the Clippers could have as much as $70 million in cap space in the summer of 2018, which would allow them to swing for the fences in free agency.“We have prepared for anything,” Rivers said. “Obviously, we don’t think that (Griffin leaving) is going to happen. We hope that doesn’t happen.”But if it did?“Yeah we’d have a lot of money,” Rivers said. “But just don’t spend the money foolishly. We’d be very careful with how we spent.”center_img In addition to Griffin, starting shooting guard J.J. Redick and role players Raymond Felton, Brandon Bass, Alan Anderson, Marreese Speights and Luc Mbah a Moute are all free agents.Redick is not expected to re-sign with the Clippers, while the others are all likely to earn more elsewhere than back in L.A. It creates a lot of intrigue for a team without a great deal of spending power and raises questions of how the front office will live up to the vow Frank made on draft night.“We’re going to do everything we can to put together a team that competes for championships every single year,” he said after the Clippers added a pair of guards in the second round.Rivers, the Clippers coach and team president, was forced to redirect his offseason plans quickly Tuesday when Paul informed him and fellow top executive Lawrence Frank that he would leave in free agency. Instead, Paul did not opt out of his contract and the Clippers traded Paul for seven players, highlighted by defensive-minded point guard Patrick Beverley, and a 2018 first-round draft pick.“The end of the day, Chris decided to leave and we just moved to the next thing,” Rivers said. “Nothing you can do about it.”last_img read more
