More than two inches of snow was dropped on some parts of Long Island Friday night after a storm rolled through and blanketed the area.

Nassau County saw the most significant amount of snowfall late Friday, while many communities in Suffolk either saw flurries or just above an inch of snow.

North Massapequa was hit with 2.5 inches, followed by Woodmere with 2.3 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Upton. North Babylon and Shirley both recorded 1.5 inches overnight.

The freezing temperatures that have lingered around for several days will continue Saturday with forecasters predicting a high of 27 and a low around 19. Snow is not in the forecast.

Things should warm up Sunday, forecaster said, with temperatures climbing to the mid-30s. In a relief to many Long Islanders, temperatures should reach the low-40s early next week.
