Rain changing over to snow Sunday night

Areas farthest north and inland will see the most snow - with up to a foot of accumulation possible in Dutchess and Ulster counties in the Hudson Valley and Litchfield County in CT - but there will be treacherous travel conditions at times throughout the region, even Long Island, where parts of central Nassau County could get 2 to 3 inches of snowfall. The wind could create a few power outages, but nothing extensive by any measure.

Temperatures will be increasing to a high near 30 degrees in the afternoon and will then decrease to about 20 degrees at night.

Folks are going to want a break, after the wintry mix of a mess that we had on Sunday -with more icing from sleet and freezing rain on Sunday night-. If it's a little closer to the coastline, we could see 6 inches or more. The forecast for tonight is snow.

Once they shift to out of the east-northeast, we have that ocean influence (water temperatures is in the upper 40s), and that will push that rain/snow line farther inland (at least back towards 495), which will make for lower snowfall totals along the coast and make for some slick travel at times. The rain should stop and we will probably see some sunshine.

You can follow my updates here and on Twitter @growingwisdom. Highs 28-44. Warmest Cape.

Rain showers will continue overnight before wrapping up Saturday morning.

Monday night: Cloudy with a period of snow developing. Highs in the 30s. Now many parts of the Cape are showing predicted snow of less than one inch.

Thursday: Bright and sunny with some clouds. Cloudy, with a high near 40.
