After heavy snowfall Saturday during a squall across Long Island, Sunday is expected to be cold, sunny and dry.

A snow squall caused near-white out conditions Saturday afternoon when heavy snow was dumped onto the island. Little accumulation occurred.

The snowfall was short-lived, but blustery conditions are expected to last through Sunday morning. Wind gusts could reach nearly 50 miles per hour overnight, the National Weather Service said. A wind advisory is in effect until midnight Saturday.

Sunday looks "fairly quiet, but will still be chilly," said weather service meteorologist Matt Wunsch. Temperatures will max out at 34 degrees Sunday, which is below normal for this time of year, the weather service said. The wind chill value will hover between 0 and 10 degrees. Winds could pick up again Sunday evening, Wunsch said, when gusts could hit 20 miles per hour. Winds could last through Monday, he said.

Temperatures will rise Monday and Tuesday as the highs reach 50. Rain is possible Tuesday afternoon and likely Tuesday night, the weather service said. The rain could linger through Friday, when it could become a wintry mix of snow and rain.
