|Storm of January 27-28, 2004
This storm left from 10 to 15 inches of snow on the north shore of Long Island, including 13.5 inches measured in Smithtown. Early forecasts indicated a sizeable storm, but many were scaled back considerably as the snow arrived. In spite of that, it somewhat lived up to the earlier hype in parts of the island. Widespread snowfall of a foot or more on top of approximately 4" of existing icy snowpack led to some of the greatest snowdepths thus far this season, in some locations greater than after the early December nor'easter.
