Spring may have sprung this week, but the threat of wintery weather still lingers as the latest Long Island forecast calls for a 50-percent chance of snow next Tuesday night into Wednesday.

It’s too early to say if the storm will ride up the East Coast or go out to sea, how much snow might fall or whether—like a couple of the most recent local forecasts of snow—Nassau and Suffolk counties will wind up getting no snow at all, forecasters say.

Spring weather will stick around for the weekend with temperatures expected to hit a high near 59 on Saturday and 43 on Sunday under partly sunny skies both days, but still dropping down below freezing after sundown.

Temps are forecast to hit a high of 37 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before warming up again next weekend. The chance of snow Tuesday would be at night, when temps continue to drop below freezing.
