The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for parts of Nassau and Suffolk counties on Sunday, the first day of spring, warning of—you guessed it—snow. You can thank Winter Storm Regis, which has been dumping snow across the Midwest on its trek east, morphing into a good, old-fashioned weekend nor’easter—just in time for the Monday morning commute.

Although there is still “considerable uncertainty,” surrounding the storm, the NWS reports a 70 percent chance of snow Sunday with a high of 36 degrees, plus 26 mph wind gusts. The temperature will drop into the low 30s when the sun goes down and snow is likely to continue throughout the night and into the Monday morning commute.

Forecasters say that anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of snow is possible Saturday, depending upon the storm's track.
