A frosty morning will greet Long Islanders on Halloween Saturday with temperatures in some areas of Suffolk County falling below 30 degrees, forecasters said.

The coldest region of Long Island on Saturday morning is expected to be Suffolk County's Pine Barrens, forecasters said. Nassau County is expected to see temperatures Saturday morning between the low-to-mid-30s, experts said.

Temperatures are expected to rise throughout Saturday after 10 a.m., when a freeze advisory from the previous night will expire, John Murray, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Friday evening.

Parts of Long Island could see temperatures Saturday in the low 40s, which is still about 10 degrees colder than the average for this time of year, Murray said.

Those looking to take in the rare blue full moon Halloween night should do so between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. before an increase of clouds and small chance of rain, Murray said.

Rainfall is expected Sunday by the afternoon, with sustained winds increasing in the late afternoon and evening to between 20 to 25 mph and gusts up to 45 mph, Murray said.

"It will be quite breezy Sunday night into Monday," he said.

There is a 20 percent of snow showers between late Sunday night and Monday, experts said.

Long Island could see about a half-inch of rain between Sunday and Monday, the weather service said.

The high temperature Sunday is expected to be in the upper 50s to low 60s, forecasters said.

The weather is expected to remain mostly dry Monday and Tuesday. Although the beginning of next week is still predicted to continue to be windy. The high Mondays could reach the upper 40s for parts of Long Island, weather officials said.

Election Day on Tuesday could see 20 mph winds with gusts reaching 30 mph, experts said. The weather service said highs in the upper 40s are expected Tuesday.
