Snow, Rain in Tuesday’s Forecast for LI


Things could get a little messy on Long Island Tuesday.

Wintry weather is expected to blow into the region, forecasters said, bringing a mix of snow that could last throughout the day.

The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement early Tuesday morning warning that a mixture of rain and snow would move into the metropolitan area and Long Island in the morning. But the wintry mix didn’t roll in, sparing commuters from a messy morning on the road.

The weather service, however, is forecasting rain late Tuesday morning and into the afternoon. The rain is expected to change over “briefly to snow this afternoon or evening in periods of heavier precipitation which could leave a slushy coating of accumulation mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces,” the weather service said.

Little or no snow accumulation is expected, the weather statement said.

Forecasters said the temperature may dip to potentially freezing temperatures Tuesday evening.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high near 42 degrees.
