A nor’easter is forecast to coat the South Fork in up to 5 inches of snow, but the rest of Long Island will see just a dusting Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

There is a small chance that up to 6 inches could fall on parts of the East End once the flakes start falling after 8 p.m. Tuesday, giving way to a cold, snowy and gusty Wednesday morning rush-hour commute, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists. But 2 to 4 inches is widely expected out east.

Temperatures will hit a high of 39 during the day Tuesday before dropping down to a low of 28 after sundown when the storm moves in. The snow is expected to continue through about 8 a.m. Wednesday, with winds up to 35 or 40 mph.

Once the storm breaks, temps are expected to stay in the high 30s Thursday before warming up to the 50s this weekend, although there is a chance of showers Friday and rain Saturday.
