Mother Nature is expected to cover the entire East End with a light dusting of snow Thursday evening.
According to Joe Pollina, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office at Upton, both the North and South forks are expected to see some "very, very light snow showers" Thursday evening, with temperatures falling to the mid 20s.
The flurries will result in an accumulation of approximately a half inch or less over both forks, Pollina said.
A storm system currently in the southeastern United States is expected to push off the eastern coast and head northeast Thursday evening, sparking the snow showers.
"We'll be on the outer fringes," Pollina said, with the the center of the storm located well to the south and east of the East End.
