A winter storm is forecast to dump two to four inches of snow Tuesday on Long Island, which is likely to snarl the rush hour commute, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Nassau and Suffolk counties from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. Tuesday.

“Snow is expected to begin after midnight tonight and continue into the Tuesday morning rush,” the agency’s Upton-based meteorologists said in a statement. “Snow ends by Tuesday afternoon.”

The storm is expected to cause slippery roadways and reduced visibility, creating hazardous travel conditions.

Temperatures are expected to be 13 with wind chills as low as 5 and gusts up to 20 mph.

Once the storm passes, there is another slight chance of snow on Wednesday, Thursday and this weekend.
