Forecasters are now predicting 1 to 2 inches of snow for Long Island, starting early Monday after midnight.

"If something drastically changes, we could get more," said Lauren Nash, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton.

Earlier, forecasters had said there was at least a 30 percent chance of up to 6 inches of snow, potentially impacting Monday's morning commute. Nash said Saturday the storm is staying farther south than originally predicted.
