Long Island has a chance of a White Christmas after all.
There’s a chance of a light accumulation of snow forecast for after sundown Christmas Eve on Monday continuing overnight into Christmas, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.
The less than an inch of snow may be mixed with rain, although temperatures are expected to hit a low of 31 at night. And a 30-percent chance of snow is forecast before 9 a.m. Christmas morning before temps rise to the 40s.
The snowy possibilities come on top of scattered flurries on a gusty Saturday with more snow, rain and high winds forecast for Wednesday and Thursday before clearing up Friday.
A wind advisory is in effect through Saturday evening as gusts of up to 50 mph may take down trees and power lines and make driving difficult.
Sunday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 43.
