A winter storm is forecast to coat Long Island in snow this weekend, although the white stuff is not expected to accumulate enough for anyone to need their shovels or sleds.

Rain drenching the region Friday will clear up for a sunny Saturday before snow is forecast to start falling Sunday evening, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.

But, as temperatures Sunday are expected to hit a low of just above freezing after sundown, the snow is forecast to mix with sleet overnight before changing to rain with up to a quarter inch of precipitation.

The rain is forecast to continue Monday morning before a chance of rain and snow returns Tuesday.

Timothy Bolger is the Editor in Chief of the Long Island Press who’s been working to uncover unreported stories since shortly after it launched in 2003. When he’s not editing, getting hassled by The Man or fielding cold calls to the newsroom, he covers crime, general interest and political news in addition to reporting longer, sometimes investigative features. He won’t be happy until everyone is as pissed off as he is about how screwed up Lawn Guyland is.
