Long Islanders should expect snow showers and cold temperatures throughout the week, according to the National Weather Service.

On Sunday, very light snow showers and occasional flurries are expected through the early afternoon, according to Lauren Nash, meteorologist in the service's Upton bureau.

The dusting of up to an inch in some parts of Long Island overnight led to a few minor auto accidents on Sunday. New York State Police said there were about 30 fender-benders overnight due to slippery roads on the Northern State and Southern State parkways in Nassau County, while Glen Cove police reported four to five fender-benders overnight in that city.

The next chance of snow is Monday night with showers tapering off by Tuesday morning, Nash said.

Conditions are expected to be dry until Wednesday morning, which could bring another dusting of an inch of snow, Nash said.

Thursday is expected to be dry, and Friday brings a chance of snow or possibly a rain-snow mix -- it's too early to say which, Nash said.

High temperatures Sunday through Thursday will be in the middle to upper 30s, with Friday's expected high to be in the upper 30s, Nash said. Lows will be in the middle 20s until Thursday night, when lows should be in the upper 20s, she said.
