After a rainy, warm Wednesday, Long Islanders should expect a possible 1 to 2 inches of wet snow Thursday night into Friday morning, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“A slow moving frontal system will move east of the region tonight, pushing this evening’s moderate to heavy rain offshore. An area of low pressure will develop along this stalling front . . . and then track northeast Thursday Night into Friday,” said the statement released by NOAA Wednesday evening.

“Confidence is increasing in Long Island . . . being affected by a light snowfall Thursday Night into Friday Morning from this system,” the statement said.

The agency said that the storm could also move northwest and bring more snow — possibly 3 to 6 inches — but this is considered to be a “low probability,” the statement said.
