Cold weather, winds heading our way

Button up. It's gonna get cold outside starting Tuesday night, forecasters predict.

Chilly weather and howling winter winds - though it technically won't be winter until Monday - are headed straight for Long Island.

Temperatures are expected to dip into the low 30s, even 20s in some areas, while winds in the high teens, with gusts into the 30s, will kick in and stick around most of the week.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service are calling for mostly sunny skies starting Wednesday. But they are predicting blustery conditions starting Wednesday night and continuing throughout the day Thursday.

Gusts of at least 26 mph are expected Tuesday afternoon and gusts of as much as 33 mph Wednesday.

The good news is, no rain is forecast until at least next Tuesday, the weather service said.
