WOODBURY - Snow is in the forecast for Long Island late tonight and towns on the East End could see some accumulation.

A chance of rain and snow will remain throughout  Saturday for all of Long Island. Temperatures won't get higher than the mid-30s and News 12 Long Island Meteorologist Bruce Avery says with the wind chill, it will feel like the mid-20s outside. Avery says any scattered flurries that fall during the day won't accumulate.

A snow storm is expected to move through the northeast late Saturday night, but most of the storm will remain east of Long Island. However, Avery says snow is expected on the East End and towns including Montauk and Orient Point could expect accumulation of 2-3 inches. The rest of Long Island can expect an inch or a dusting.
