Wintry mess ahead for Sunday and Monday

As if this winter could not have been more annoying or tiring, another winter storm is expected to bear down on Long Island for Sunday and Monday. Look for mostly snow, but rain, sleet, and freezing rain may mix in at times. Snow totals could reach six inches or more.

Saturday was a perfect example of the cliche "the calm before the storm." Bright sunshine filled the skies and temperatures reached the middle 30s. Clouds will increase as the day turns to Sunday.

An area of low pressure, responsible for the recent California deluge, is headed cross-country. A cold front drops down from the north and brings a bit of mixed precipitation to Long Island for Sunday, starting around midday. Precipitation should be light during the afternoon and evening on Sunday as the front hooks up with moisture from the main storm trekking east.

Any mix turns to snow by Sunday night and the snow could be heavy at times into Monday. The snow ends before or around the evening commute Monday.

Snow totals for the storm is 4-8 inches. Higher totals may be seen on the south shore, as a thin band of heavy snow may stay mostly to our south.

Temperatures remain below normal for next week, but an upward trend is seen with each passing day.
