HICKSVILLE, NY (MorichesDaily) — It is not just bitter cold headed to Long Island this week, but also accumulating and disruptive snowfall. Anywhere from a half inch to 3 inches of snow may fall Monday evening into the night.

The greatest likelihood of seeing snow is eastern Suffolk County. Forecasters say the cold air is in place for snow, but we won’t see heavy snow tonight.

  • Nassau County could see a half inch to an inch of snow.
  • Central Suffolk about an inch or more.
  • Eastern Long Island may see 2 to 3 inches.

While there’s a chance of snow showers in the afternoon, the accumulating snow is expected later into the evening and night.

Any snow is expected to taper off around midnight, with a scattered snow shower or flurry early Tuesday bringing little or no accumulation.

Bigger Storm Late Week

Two snow events are in the works for the Northeast corridor this week.

In the wake of this snow event, bitterly cold air will take hold of the entire Northeast for Tuesday and Wednesday, forecasters say.

Highs in the single digits, on either side of zero, will be common throughout the Northeast.

The brutal cold at midweek will set the stage for the workweek to end with a snowstorm, one that could bring substantial snow to a larger corridor of the Northeast than the late Monday-Tuesday event.

A second and more potent snowstorm may follow for Thursday night and Friday.

Forecasters aren’t certain yet the track of the late week storm. Updates will be available in the coming days.
