Not much. Both are really short tubes for full-chat 357 loadings so the amount of burning after the muzzle should be close to the same.
But, technically, the 2" should have more than the 3"....but I doubt you'd notice it.

depends on the powder used, or ammo. The 3 inch will have less using the same ammo/powder as more is burned up in the slightly longer barrel. You will also achieve higher velocities as well (quite substantially I might add). That being said, snubby .357's will flash a decent amount.
