A winter storm brought up as much as five inches of snow to parts of Long Island on Saturday. But while the snow is gone, bitter cold tempatures and strong winds will make it feel below zero on some parts of the area.

In New York City and Nassau, they'll be in the teens, but the wind chill will make outside feel below zero.

In Suffolk, they'll be in the lower 20s; with wind chill, it'll feel like the single digits outside.

Winter weather and wind advisories are in effect for all of Suffolk County until Sunday at 1 p.m., said weather service meteorologist Nelson Vaz. Sustained northwest winds there are expected to be between 20 mph and 30 mph, with gusts of up to 50 mph, he said.

"It's going to be a chilly night," Vaz said.

New York City will see scattered flurries with accumulation amounting to a dusting, Vaz said. Nassau and western Suffolk snow won't be much heavier - a bit more than a dusting, perhaps a coating, he said.

Riverhead Town issued an advisory warning of bad weather conditions for last evening and today.

"This will cause whiteout conditions and drifting snow, especially on our north-south roads," the advisory says. "Although most roads are still passable, travel is not recommended."
