The North Fork is expected to dodge the majority of a snowstorm expected to hit the western part of Long Island Tuesday, with totals of up to an inch expected locally, weather experts said.
The snow will begin sometime after 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, but will change over to rain by the mid-afternoon due to a warm air mass off the coast, according to the National Weather Service station in Upton.
The South Fork is expected to get even less snow, with just a half-inch expected for the area, forecasts show.
Further west, the NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for Nassau County until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, calling for 2 to 4 inches of snow.
According to the NWS, further west on Long Island, “snow will create icy and hazardous travel conditions throughout the day.”
