Snow Forecast for Long Island Tuesday

Snow is forecast to start falling on Long Island as early as before dawn Tuesday morning into the afternoon with accumulations possibly reaching up to three inches—making the rainy Monday commute look easy.

The likelihood of the white stuff coating the region increases between 3 a.m. and 4 p.m., although temperatures will hover just above freezing, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.

Wednesday is expected to be sunny, but has a chance of flurries after sundown into Thursday before clearing up again Friday.

A 50 percent chance of snow and rain is in the Saturday forecast ahead of a sunny Sunday.
