A winter storm forecast to bring 2-to-4 inches of snow to Long Island starting Sunday is expected to continue into Monday, making for a messy commute to start off the work week.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 6 p.m. Sunday through noon Monday for Nassau and Suffolk counties as well as the tri-state area.

Snow and sleet are forecast to start falling first before changing to snow after sundown when temperatures drop into the 20s.

The flakes are forecast to continue falling through the Monday morning rush hour commute amid gusts of up to 25 mph, decreasing visibility to as little as one quarter of a mile.

Temps will remain below freezing through Thursday before reaching the 40s next weekend.
