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.

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.
