NEW YORK (AP) - The National Weather Service says up to 12 inches of snow could fall on parts of eastern Long Island.

The Weather Service issued a winter storm warning that lasts until 1 a.m. Sunday for both Nassau and Suffolk counties. It issued a winter weather advisory for New York City and the northern suburbs.

Snow began falling from New York City and points east at mid-morning Saturday.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone says officials are prepared. He says they are monitoring the snowfall accumulations.

Predictions are for Nassau County to see about 4-to-6 inches. Snow totals could reach 8-to-12 inches further east. Wind gusts could reach 25 to 30 mph.

The New York Racing Association cancelled Saturday’s races at Aqueduct Racetrack because of the snow.
