The Euro stands alone in showing some snow Sunday night for LI and southern New England:
While none of the other models are showing it, for the 3rd run in a row, the Euro is showing the trailing system for late this weekend come close enough to bring precipitation to Long Island and southern New England. While the odds are low for now, it does have support from some of its ensemble members. If it does occur, temperatures would be marginal on Long Island, so it could start as rain and/or sleet on Sunday afternoon, but if the system can deepen enough, it's possible that it changes to a wet snow Sunday night. Again, the odds are still low for now, but it can't be ignored.
LONG ISLAND FORECAST:
Today (Tuesday): Mostly sunny, windy, and cold with highs in the upper 30's. Wind gusts up to 30 mph from the NW.
Tonight: Mostly clear and very cold with lows mostly in the low 20's, but in the teens in the Pine Barrens region of central to eastern Suffolk. It will be breezy in the evening, but the wind will continue to decrease after midnight, and if it goes mostly calm and the skies stay clear, the NWS is showing Westhampton Beach getting down to 11 degrees.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Partly to mostly cloudy with lighter winds with highs in the low 40's.
Thursday (New Year's Eve): Morning showers and then cloudy in the afternoon with highs in the upper 40's.
New Year's Eve night: Partly to mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 30's.
Friday (New Year's Day): Rain developing in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 40's. The rain will continue into the night.
Saturday: Cloudy with a chance of showers in the morning, and then partial clearing possible in the afternoon with highs in the mid 50's.
