The odds are increasingly likely that Long Island will be blanketed with a fresh coat of up to five inches of snow Wednesday night.

While parts of eastern LI are still digging out from a record 33 inches of snow from a blizzard over the weekend, partly sunny skies above freezing Tuesday are forecast to change into snow after sundown Wednesday.

Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists say there’s a 60-percent chance of between three and five inches of snow when temps drop below freezing overnight into Thursday morning.

Thursday and Friday expected to be sunny with highs in the low 40s, but another slight chance of snow showers Saturday and Sunday might add another layer to the snow and ice already on the ground.
