After a warmer-than-average Tuesday, a cold front is expected to arrive that will temporarily bring back winter's chill, forecasters said.

The temperature was expected to fall into the 20s across Long Island Tuesday night, with the wind chill making it feel around five degrees colder, the National Weather Service said.

Wednesday's sun should send thermometers up to 40 degrees or so — but with the wind chill, it will feel like 15 to 25. After an even colder night, with a wind chill of 10 to 15 degrees, Thursday should be sunny, with a high of 35 degrees.

Friday's weather is a near twin, according to the weather service.

There is a 30% chance of rain or snow falling on Friday night and Saturday.

Sunday should be at least partly sunny, with a high of 42 degrees. Monday should be even sunnier though just barely warmer, according to the weather service.
