Some areas of Long Island even saw snow early Sunday morning.

A High Wind Warning remains in effect until 2 p.m. A Freeze Watch will go into effect for portions of the area Sunday night as overnight lows could fall below freezing.

As we move through Sunday, winds will be slowly picking up late in the afternoon and Sunday night as the next weather system approaches. Now with respect to snowfall some models do show areas of a coasting to an inches of snow! Now picture if we get a burst of snow into that wind and you will wind up with blinding visibility for a short time Sunday morning. So if you are traveling during the early morning hours hang on to the steering wheel and travel with care.

On Sunday temperatures will reach to the high 40s at best.

Some wet snow and rain will hit the area during the daytime on Monday. Snow could be here before daybreak, but much of what falls will be either rain or a mix of wet snow and rain. Some some wet snow might continue to fall in the evening. Temperatures will be in the 30s to lower 40s.

Very cold air follows Tuesday into Wednesday morning. On Tuesday, temperatures will be in the 30s, and at night it will drop down to lows in the 20s and even teens.
