A fast-moving winter storm blanketed parts of Long Island in nine inches of snow on Super Bowl Sunday.

The National Weather Service reported 9 inches of snow in Melville, which was the highest amount on LI, and 8.4 inches in North Syosset, the most accumulation in Nassau County. Connecticut saw similar amounts, New York City got less, and New Jersey had the most snow in the New York Metro area with 10 inches.

The storm came after a near-blizzard dumped more than a foot of snow on much of LI last Monday and the Island’s three groundhogs predicted an early spring the next day, which was Groundhog Day.

After the storm clears out, temperatures are forecast to remain below freezing through the week, with a 70 percent chance of less than an inch snow on Tuesday and a 40 percent chance of snow on Thursday.
