Light snow that will eventually turn to rain Sunday night has begun to spread over the area, with no significant accumulation predicted.

“I don’t think we’re going to see a lot of snowfall,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Justin Godynick said. “There may be close to an inch along the North Shore, but on the South Shore it will be too warm.”

Temperatures will rise to the lower 40s by daybreak Monday, so prepare for a rainy commute, then look for the mercury to climb again to close to 50 by the afternoon.

Any precipitation clears out by Tuesday, when there will be mostly sunny skies with highs near 43 and lows near 32.

Things could get a bit messy again on Wednesday, when it will be mostly cloudy with scattered rain or snow showers. Highs will reach near 40 and lows near 23.

Thursday will bring a mix of sun and clouds and it will be noticeably colder out, with highs reaching only near 29 and lows in the teens near 17.

Slightly warmer temperatures return to start off the weekend on Friday, when there again will be a mix of sun and clouds, but highs will be near 31 and lows near 23.
