Thursday brings windy conditions, with gusts of up to around 35 mph from the northwest, forecasters say.

That means temperatures around 40 degrees could feel more like 30, the National Weather Service said.

The day also brings a “chance of a passing snow shower or flurries,” said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

About 2 p.m., winds at Long Island MacArthur Airport were 18 mph from the west, gusting to 29, with a temperature of 36 degrees, feeling more like 26, according to the weather service.

Temperatures overnight head down to the low 20s, with Friday looking to bring sunny conditions, with highs of around 40 degrees.

Hoffman said, “I don’t see any major snow in the seven-day forecast,” and look for a “nice warm-up over the weekend.”
