At least it's not Buffalo.

Temperatures on Long Island will remain chilly on Saturday before finally warming up on Sunday and Monday, according to Tim Morrin, a meteorologist in the Upton office of the National Weather Service.

The forecast for Saturday afternoon calls for temperatures in the low 40s -- about 10 degrees below normal -- with southwest winds of 10 to 15 mph, he said. Temperatures on the Island will dip Saturday night into the mid 30s, Morrin said.

Sunday should provide a welcome relief from the scarves and mittens as the forecast calls for temperatures in the mid 50s with winds ranging from 7 to 12 mph.

Steady rain is expected late-Sunday night into Monday, Morrin said. And with high temperatures predicted to be in the mid 60s on Monday, he said, Long Island will "challenge" the high of 63 degrees set in 2001.
