While snow has been in the forecast for the Riverhead area a few times in 2013, it wasn't until Monday that flakes fell and stuck to the ground.
The snow started falling around 2 p.m. with snow expected to continue with up to three inches of snow on the ground before Tuesday morning.
Above, we started a photo journal of the first snowfall of the year with photos from our readers. We'd love to add more, so feel free to upload your snow photos or e-mail them to Lisa.Finn@Patch.com.
Thank you for sharing.
