It's no doubt become the most reviled four-letter word on Long Island this winter: Snow.

And now, forecasters at the National Weather Service are predicting there's more in our future, maybe as soon as Tuesday night.

The good news is we won't get hit hard, forecasters said. Less than a half-inch is possible, though there remains a chance of snow showers into Wednesday morning.

Luckily, temperatures are expected to move into the low 40s Wednesday and again on Thursday, meaning we're more likely to get rain - and that whatever snowfall we do get is likely to melt soon.

Tuesday will be partly sunny with a high of 43. Expect gusts on Wednesday that could make for a typical March afternoon: Damp, windy, unpleasant.

Wind gusts are expected in the 15-17 mph range. The chance of precipitation is 50 percent.
