A winter storm brought 3.5 inches of snow to parts of Long Island on Saturday, but now freezing cold temperatures are in the forecast.
The National Weather Service (NWS) reported that was the snowfall total in Wheatley Heights, which saw the most accumulation on Long Island in the storm. Bethpage had the highest amount in Nassau County with 3.3 inches. The winter weather advisory that NWS had issued for LI expired at 1 a.m. Sunday.
“The arctic cold moves in later tonight and remains into Tuesday, with temperatures slightly below seasonal normals,” NWS said in a regional weather summary.
Lows tonight will be in the mid-teens inland to the lower 20s along the coast, the agency said, adding that Monday’s highs will remain below freezing, in the mid 20s to around 30.
