A light blanket of snow covered Riverhead Thursday morning, a small preview of the major storm expected to slam the area later in the day. 

The National Weather Service predicts that Long Island will see between 8 and 10 inches of snow, starting Thursday night, and has issued a blizzard warning for 6 p.m. in the area. 

Temperatures are expected to drop Thursday night into the mid-teens, and stay below freezing into Sunday.

If residents learned anything from last year's February blizzard, which crippled most of Long Island, it's to be prepared. Here is a list of local stores to find shovels, snow blowers, batteries, generators and other weather-related items.

Home Depot: 1550 Old Country Rd, Riverhead, NY 11901(631) 284-2530.

Griffing Hardware: 36 W Main St. Riverhead, NY 11901. (631) 727-2805. Owner Tim Griffing said customers have been lining up in the hours before the snow begins to fall heavily.

"It's been busy," he said, but assured they have plenty of shovels and ice melt in stock. 

Walmart: 765 Old Country Road, Riverhead, NY 11901, (631) 369-1041.

Kmart: 605 Old Country Road, Riverhead, NY 11901, (631) 369-0040.

Lowe's: 1461 Old Country Road, Riverhead, NY 11901, (631) 208-2190.
