Long Island updates for Friday, Feb. 28, 2014

As we wrap up Newsday's LI Now live post for Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, take a look at some of today's top stories and social media updates from reporters and readers, as well as this weekend's wintry weather forecast.

We'll be back Monday to continue serving as your source for breaking news, weather, traffic and transit updates to make sure you're up to speed on what's happening on Long Island. There's also a 4:30 p.m. meeting today in Shelter Island. Newsday's Mitchell Freedman will be at the meeting tweeting.

It's currently 22 degrees in Islip. A storm that could drop up to 8 inches or more may start as early as late morning to early afternoon Sunday with light snowfall, probably turning heavier after midnight. The Monday morning rush is likely to be messy, and potentially hazardous, with low visibility if heavier bands arrive before 7 a.m.

AGENDA

SHELTER ISLAND. The town board meets at 4:30 p.m. today at Town Hall. Members could vote on a resolution to extend the moratorium on using underground irrigation systems until the end of 2014. It was originally to go into effect in September, but the board is still studying its impact on groundwater. Follow Mitchell Freedman's Twitter updates @eastwatch.
