Overview of the weather ahead and the Long Island forecast:
It will be a fairly uneventful week of weather in the northeast with a cold start and then turning mild late this week and through the weekend. The big offshore storm tomorrow should bring some snow showers to the Cape Cod area and possibly some flurries out by Montauk tomorrow morning (see 2nd image for map for 8 AM tomorrow). It will also bring more clouds for the coast and help to increase the wind again with a northwest flow. A weak system moving through on Wednesday will bring some light snow to inland areas of NY state and New England, and it will bring more clouds to Long Island. Thursday and Friday will turn milder and be mostly sunny, and then a frontal system will bring even milder weather this weekend with highs in the mid 50's on Long Island with some rain from around mid-day Saturday into Sunday afternoon possibly. It will then turn seasonably chilly next week with only a very slight chance of snow for Long Island.
