Post-Blizzard Weekend Forecast: Feb. 9-10

After the big blizzard leaves, we'll get a day or two to take a breath.

The Noreaster that blew down trees and dropped a thick blanket of snow island-wide on Friday will begin to pull out of the region by midday on Saturday.

The weekend is expected to begin with snow continuing and tapering off throughout the morning on Saturday.

In its place will be clearing skies throughout the day, with gusty winds continuing - sustained 24 to 28 mph with gusts up to 48 mph.

High temperatures across the Long Island will remain in the high 20s.

Sunday will pick up where Saturday left off with sunny skies and calmer winds throughout the day.

Suffolk County will see a high of 35 degrees before a chance for rain rolls in after midnight.

The start of the work week will bring with it warmer temperatures, with high temperatures expected to be in the mid-40s.

Whats' beyond any comprehension is those stranded motorist. Thank goodness no one died. Those roads and even major arteries are governed and managed with millions of dollars of taxpayer money. The people in charge have snowmobiles,ATV's and many more emergency equipment and machinery purchased over the years,much with 9?11 funds from Washington and alot of town governments just dropped the ball. Even with the aftermath of hurricane Sandy we heard and read ,we are ready. We are ready for what?, Nothing bit lies and unforfilled empty promises. All they are interested in is getting themselves more money in raises, getting family,friends and supporters jobs,etc. We have a store clerk now in charge of the well being of millions of people on Long Island, What a scandel.....

Can you imagine if the storm didn't start with rain? We might have 4' of snow. Towns don't want full time workers anymore. Cut workers and who pockets the money?My taxes go up and yet less service. I saw contractor pick up trucks with plows,didn't do much good in18" of snow and now ice! Bring back the Old Hwy Dept. 10 wheel dump trucks and real snow plows with real Highway Dept workers.
