It looks like Long Island isn’t going to get a white Christmas after all.
Despite previous forecasts predicting a chance of light accumulation of snow for sundown Christmas Eve on Monday continuing overnight into Christmas, Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists now say flurries will end before 11 p.m. Monday and little to no accumulation is expected. The snow will likely be mixed with rain.
On Christmas, there is a slight chance of light rain before 9 a.m. The rest of the day is forecast to be partly sunny with a high near 44. At night it’s expected to be partly cloudy with a low around 31.
Rain is scheduled to return Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning, and preliminary reports for the weekend indicates a chance of rain and snow on Saturday before turning into all snow on Sunday.
