Chance of Light Snow on Long Island Through Monday
It appears Long Islanders’ fears of a social media predicted mega storm this weekend have subsided since the National Weather Service debunked that rumor earlier in the week, but a chance of snow does exist—just not as much as armchair forecasters would’ve liked you to believe.
Light snow is in the forecast from Saturday night through Monday, according to the National Weather Service.
Saturday’s forecast promises to be tolerable, with meteorologists calling for partly sunny skies and temperatures near 30.
There is a less than 50-percent chance of snow showers overnight and a chance of light snow late Sunday afternoon. Temperatures are expected to hover around freezing, forecasters said.
Snowfall is more likely Sunday evening, with possible accumulation of around one inch, forecasters said.
There’s a chance of light snow Monday morning.
The National Weather Service released a statement earlier this week to debunk rumors of a massive storm capable of dumping more than two feet of snow on the region, which took off on social media.
