It seems like they smartened up and put out a weather advisory that calls for the possibility of 4-8 inches. I would look for the North Shore of LI to receive the most now. The storm will be gone by tomorrow morning, but I suspect some more closed school districts in the hardest hit areas.
It all depends on how the heavy bands set up, but since the storm has tracked south, those heavy bands will be right over Long island during the overnight hours. It depends how much intensification happens.
Keep your cars in your driveway.
From the maps that I have seen and the multiple forecasts that I have read, it seems to be in total contradiction to what you mention. I am not, and dont claim to be an expert, but all of the information I have seen says: For tonight, the further south you are the more you will get, but new total snow will be 2-4". For this weekend: half the forecasts call for little to no precipitation, and the ones that do say snow/rain mix with little or no accumulation.
