The weather forecast for Long Island shows cold with the possibility of snow

Unseasonably warm weather over the weekend is expected to come to a wintry end on Monday, as a snowstorm is expected to sweep across the Long Island area Monday night into Tuesday.

Don’t expect to do a lot of shoveling, as the National Weather Service expects no more than an inch and a half of powder.

However, if the storm drifts south over New York, it will likely reach 4 or 5 inches in some parts of Nassau and Suffolk counties. The last time Long Island saw 3 inches of snow was Feb. 13, 2022, according to Dominic Ramone, a meteorologist with the Weather Service in Upton.

The temperature is expected to rise to about 48 degrees on Sunday and drop to about 32 in the evening, both under cloudy skies.

The average high temperature at this time of year is 40 degrees, according to Ramone, who added that the entire month of February was warmer than average.

The temperature on Saturday was 55 degrees in Islip at 3:41 p.m

Monday will see some sun during the day and a high of 46 degrees before dropping to around 34 degrees. A low pressure area appearing off the Atlantic coast late Monday night into Tuesday is expected to bring cold air from the north and could drop rain that turns to snow, Ramone said.

Governor Kathy Hochul called on state residents to prepare for a storm that could bring heavy snow, gusty winds, moderate coastal flooding and potentially dangerous driving conditions.

The Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for northern Westchester County, Putnam and Rockland counties, as well as inland Connecticut and northeastern New Jersey. Snow accumulations in those areas late Monday night into Tuesday afternoon could reach 6 to 8 inches with 10 inches possible at higher elevations.

Although it’s too early to predict how much snow will accumulate on Long Island, it may be time to “get those plows out and give them something to do this season.” Ramone said.

He noted that Tuesday has “the potential for the heaviest snowfall in two seasons — at least in Islip.”
