The low reading for Islip broke a record for Nov. 3. The previous record low for Nov. 3 in Islip was 30 degrees, set in 2002Unofficially, inland readings in eastern Suffolk were also chilly. The mercury dropped to 25 degrees in Manorville and in the Paumanok Vineyards in Aquebogue, according to Weather Underground.
