The wintry mix that fell across on Long Island Wednesday had mostly ended by nighttime but forecasters warned of hazardous road conditions overnight.

"Black ice will be possible especially on untreated roads," the National Weather Service said in an 8:35 p.m. alert. "Use caution and slow down when out driving overnight into early Thursday morning."

Some places in Suffolk saw a couple of inches of snow, with Nassau getting a little less, the weather service said.

On the bright side, the weather service said Long Islanders can expect partly sunny skies Thursday and mostly sunny skies Friday, with tempartures soaring into the mid-to-upper 40s both days.

Rain returns Saturday, though temperatures will remain in the upper 40s, the weather service said.

Saturday night figures to be frigid, with overnight temperatures dipping into the low 20s. The weather service said gale-force wind gusts are possible Saturday afternoon and evening.

The weather service said despite highs only in the 30s Sunday, it will at least be sunny.

It'll be next Monday before Long Islanders have a real shot at cracking 50 degrees again, the weather service said. And it should also be sunny Monday and Tuesday, according to the forecast.
