The National Weather Service is predicating more snow will hit the East End sometime after 3 a.m. on Tuesday.

“From Monday night to Tuesday morning, basically, we’re expecting light snow to fall sometime after 3 a.m. or 4 a.m.  Tuesday, and it’ll probably be out of here by noon on Tuesday,” said Pete Wichrowski of the National Weather Service in Upton.

A hazardous weather outlook reported by the NWS states that 1 to 2 inches near the coast, and 2 to 4 inland could be expected, though “there is some uncertainty in the amount of snowfall as warm air is drawn in off the Atlantic with a potential changeover to rain or a mix of rain and snow.”Monday will be dry but still chilly, with temperatures around 31 degrees, he said.

The National Weather Service’s seven-day forecast predicts no snow for the rest of the week and Thursday’s temperatures will hit a snow-melting high of 46 degrees.
