Drivers should be very cautious Tuesday night as the National Weather Service has warned that roads are icy.

“A few pockets of light snow or flurries are possible this evening, with little to no additional accumulation. Roadways that have been plowed may become icy overnight if untreated as temperatures will remain at or below freezing. Use extra caution if traveling this evening or during the early morning hours,” the service said in a special statement.

Daytime snowfall amounts varied on Long Island, the service said.

East Shoreham saw 2.5 inches of snow, with Mount Sinai getting 2.4, the weather service said. At the lower end were Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma with 1.2 inches and Patchogue with 0.8.

Wednesday is expected to be breezy and partly sunny, warming to the mid-40s.
