• Hey Seawolves! Hope you're all enjoying your summer! Just a quick update to help you plan your weekend: A system possibly bringing heavy rain to us tonight and tomorrow is moving further south than originally anticipated! Even so, be on the look out for light rain, starting late tonight/early tomorrow morning that will pick up and last for most of the day. Expect Saturday night to clear up some, but still be cloudy with chance of scattered showers. Fortunately, Sunday has a much better outlook with clearer skies and temperatures in the 70s! Could be a great beach day before back to school (just make sure to apply and reapply plenty of sunscreen!) Enjoy the rest of your summer!
  • A strong line of storms is making it's way through Nassau county and heading to our area in the next 45 minutes to an hour. A second line of storms behind it which will be in our area a little later on is currently still west of NYC. Some of these cells contain very heavy rain and strong winds which can easily result in dangerous travel conditions. Expect evening rush hour delays and be careful on the road!
  • There is the potential for some severe weather today across Long Island. Thunderstorms are expected throughout the afternoon and evening and have the potential to bring strong winds, heavy rainfall, and hail. Most of the severe storms will be to our west, but there is the chance that we'll see some here. Keep an eye on the sky and get inside if you hear thunder!
  • 90+ degrees today here on campus! Make sure you stay hydrated and remain aware of the signs of heat exhaustion if working outside over extended periods of time. Tomorrow we will see much of the same in regards to temperatures high around 90 degrees, but we have a chance for thunderstorms later in the day some of which can be severe. The rest of the week will be a bit more bearable with highs back down into the 70s with clear skies. Have a great week and enjoy the summer weather!
  • Hey Seawolves! Did you see the double rainbow outside during that quick shower? The rain should be gone for the rest of the night, but we could see some drizzle here and there. Stay strong for your last round of finals! -N
  • Hope your finals are going well Seawolves! Tomorrow would be a good day to stay in and study-we're expecting 1 to 2 inches of rain for tomorrow and tomorrow night with wind gusts of around 30mph. Mother's Day will be a bit better, but we're still looking at some showers throughout the day. By Monday morning it should clear up and start to warm up as well! Hang in there, we're in the home stretch! -K
  • Heavier showers and possibly some embedded thundershowers are anticipated in the next 45 minutes or so. Please be prepared and share this post among fellow students! -C

  • Hello Seawolves, and happy weekend before the last week of classes! Weather today was hot and sunny. Tomorrow will be hot with a high around 82 degrees with a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning before becoming mostly sunny. Models currently show some instability, which could favor some thunderstorms. Sunday is more seasonal, with a high around 60 degrees and a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 9 pm. Stay tuned later this weekend for a weather update on the upcoming week. Enjoy the warm weather before buckling down on studying for finals! -K
  • Good evening, Seawolves! Examination of (nonoperational) 2-km GOES 16 infrared satellite data shows the mature, fully occluded cyclone off the coast of New Jersey that has been the cause of much misery throughout yesterday and today. Convection associated with the storm has waned over the past several hours as the surface low moves through our area and weakens. For tomorrow, fog in the morning will burn off with daytime heating and the restoration of west-southwesterly flow. Temperatures should rebound into the 60s for highs. Check back here tomorrow for your Roth Regatta and weekend forecast! -P
  • Periods of showers and bands of heavier rain are expected to continue tonight into the morning hours tomorrow, tapering off in the afternoon. Pack your umbrella or poncho if you’re planning a late night study session at the library! Skies will begin to clear Wednesday evening as the storm system weakens and dissipates off the coast. Although ridging builds in on Thursday, the surface layer is expected to remain fairly saturated, increasing cloud cover and keeping temperatures on the cool side. For Friday and Saturday, approaching shortwaves will bring southwesterly flow to the region, capping off the penultimate week of classes with temperatures in the low to mid 70s! -P

  • There may be some showers between 10pm and midnight, earlier if you are driving back to campus from the west. These showers are ahead of a cold front that will bring our high temperatures to around 70 tomorrow and to the mid and upper 50s for the rest of the week. In spite of the cooler temperatures we should stay dry until at least Thursday! -J
  • 84 and sunny today on this mid-April day and the flowers are loving it! -C
  • Sunny and 55 today... temps warming into the 60's for the start of your week and could get as high as 70 by late week! -C
  • Looks like it's going to be a pretty messy evening as showers and embedded thunderstorms will be rolling through over the next hour or so.... Should be clearing up somewhat after midnight! -C
  • Hello Seawolves!! Hope you enjoyed Wednesday's beautiful weather, as Thursday will return to rain. Rain will be heavy at times, starting around 8 am and lasting through the evening. Winds could be a little gusty. Thunderstorms are also possible throughout the day. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s. Stay dry and safe. Remember, if you can hear thunder, get indoors! -K
  • Some thunderstorms rolling in within the hour...don't be outside unless you have to be!
  • Temperatures tomorrow will once again approach 60° but the sunshine will steadily disappear going into the afternoon. Rain should pick up overnight Monday, becoming steadiest during morning classes on Tuesday. During that time, there is also the possibility of embedded thunderstorms with even heavier downpours and gusty winds. The rain will become more intermittent into Tuesday afternoon and will taper off around sunset. Rainfall amounts could total between 1 and 2 inches. After all of this, sunshine and 60° weather should return for Wednesday. Have a good start to the week! -S
  • Our final update before the snow begins tonight... Anticipated snowfall totals for the Stony Brook area have decreased somewhat from last night as we believe the storm system will take a track closer to the coast, which will push larger snowfall totals further west in places like New Jersey and New York City. The snow, which will start late tonight at Stony Brook, will be heaviest at times tomorrow morning and may mix with rain locally - therefore we believe that our chances of getting under a foot of snow is becoming more likely. That being said, we still believe this will be a major snowfall event for the larger region, especially in places due north and west of Long Island including parts of Westchester, New Jersey, and the Tri-State region where snowfall totals can be expected to reach two feet... Do not travel unless absolutely necessary tonight and tomorrow as this heavy snow combined with strong winds will combine for dangerous, whiteout conditions... Snowfall is expected to come to an end on Tuesday evening with breezy conditions remaining for Wednesday...

  • If you're still at Stony Brook University or on Long Island for break... A Blizzard Watch in effect for Stony Brook as all of Long Island prepares for a major winter storm to impact the area Monday night and lasting until Tuesday night... We're watching a system that will be moving through the Midwest late tomorrow, beginning to impact portions of the Northeast by Monday night and intensifying into Tuesday... At this time, we're currently expecting heavy snow with accumulations of some 9-14 inches falling from Monday night to Tuesday night as well as damaging, sustained winds of 20-30 miles per hour with gusts of up to 40-50 miles per hour. The combination of heavy snow and high winds will make for dangerous travel on Tuesday and may cause power outages. Check back here soon for updates to the snowfall totals as they are made available to us, and as always, please like and share our page to keep your fellow Seawolves in the know about this upcoming storm!

  • We hope you've enjoyed today's beautiful spring weather! Tomorrow is your last chance to enjoy the mild temperatures because by Friday winter reawakens! Expect winds to pick up as the day progresses Thursday, the last day above 50 degrees for quite some time. Showers move in late Thursday evening before changing to snow overnight into Friday. The snow should last into early Friday afternoon, accumulating to 2-4 inches. Unfortunately, following the snow will be a blast of cold air with low temperatures in the teens throughout the weekend. At this time we think the cold may persist throughout spring break. Hang in there Seawolves, Spring will return soon! -J
  • Hey Seawolves! We hope that preparation for your midterms is going well so far! Our region is about to experience a big change in our weather over the next few days. Be sure to hold onto your hats today as winds with gusts of up to 50mph will make it feel blustery. Temperatures will also be falling throughout the day, paving way for a noticeably cold weekend with high temperatures on Saturday struggling to reach the freezing mark. Low temperatures in the teens are also expected this weekend. Stay warm - we expect more seasonable weather to return by the beginning of next week! Best of luck on midterms! -B
  • Good evening everyone! We're sure you've noticed the spotty sunshine today and this afternoon's buildup of cloud cover; the good news is that the rest of the evening should stay this way: cloudy with temperatures hovering around the low 50’s. Expect that to change late tonight with light rain starting after 9 PM, possibly with a few rumbles of thunder and becoming a little heavier after midnight. For Wednesday morning and afternoon, expect the remnant rain to develop into showers and thunderstorms with gusty winds possible - it will also be warm with temperatures above 60 degrees. We'd recommend an umbrella tomorrow - stay dry! -M
  • Seawolves! A fairly strong line of showers and thunderstorms is headed our way! Expect conditions to decline over the next hour or so with precipitation starting by about 6:45-7:00 PM. Stay safe and remember to head indoors when thunder roars! -C
