No Surprise Here: Another Wintry Mix Headed to Long Island

Apparently Mother Nature has not heard our desperate pleas—or maybe she’s enjoying this winter onslaught a little too much.

As has been the norm this winter, another storm is barreling toward Long Island, bringing with it a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. (Sigh.)

Snow will begin falling around 4 p.m. Sunday and could hang around until Monday morning, forecasters said. Nassau and Suffolk counties could see 1 to 2 inches of snow in most areas, with the North Shore potentially tallying an extra inch.

Basically, Sunday could be another messy day on the Island despite minimal accumulation.

And then there’s the matter of the deep freeze that has enveloped the Island for several weeks.

The forecast calls for a high of 32 degrees Sunday, but the wind chill could make it feel like 15 degrees, the weather service said.

If the Island is lucky, the mercury could rise to a high of 37 on Monday, before plummeting into the teens in the evening.

And don’t look now, but warmer temperatures are on the horizon.

Meteorologists are already predicting a high of 47 on Wednesday, with rain also in the forecast.

Unfortunately the brief warm spell could end Friday, when the mercury is expected to drop below freezing once again.

On the bright side, at least this isn’t Boston.
