2013 1112 snowflakes

Riverhead Central School District will have a two-hour delayed start this morning.

Snow continues to fall before daybreak, as a band of moderate to heavy snow sinks south across eastern Suffolk County, according to the National Weather Service. Locations under this band could receive a quick inch or two of snow in an hour, the weather service said.

Snow-covered roadways and reduced visibility will make for difficult travel early this morning, the weather service said in a special weather statement.

The snow band should diminish in intensity and move out of the area towards daybreak, according to the statement.
