Watch as tons of leaves (and possibly some debris) haul across Shirley, New York earlier this afternoon. This part of Long Island was under a tornado warning at the time. #nywx @NWSNewYorkNY Video: @thrillcats pic.twitter.com/i2UY4gwbP3

Three tornadoes were confirmed in New York Saturday. All three rated at an EF-0 with winds up to 85 mph.
Saturday night, the low pressure center will move away from New England, but continue to pull in a cold breeze. The cold breeze will likely help generate some scattered rain and snow showers, enhanced by the warmer water temperatures of the Great Lakes.
Locally heavy rain will be possible for the Adirondack mountains and New England with 1-2″ of rainfall possible. Meanwhile, we will see 1-4″ of snowfall for higher elevations in the northeast. Lake effect snow bands also have similar snowfall totals through the start of the weekend. On Sunday, our next clipper system arrives to the northern half of the country, leading to additional accumulation. For more on the next snow potential, read here.
