Another beautiful day, but snow chances begin to slowly increase before Thanksgiving:
- The details for Long Island are in the forecast below, with the only change really being that chance of a few showers Saturday afternoon/evening.
- The cooler weather really begins on Sunday, and the coldest day may be Tuesday with highs possibly in the upper 40's.
- Even before Thanksgiving, snow can't be completely ruled out on Long Island with steadily increasing chances as you head north and west, especially towards the higher elevations of NY state and New England, where snow will be likely before Thanksgiving (see 3rd and 4th images).
