Many Long Islanders are starting their weekend off by shoveling thanks to Winter Storm Iola, which dropped 2-4 inches of snow on most parts of the Island. According to the National Weather Service, in Nassau County, Bayville was hit the hardest with 5.3 inches of snow, and in Suffolk, East Northport topped the list with 5 inches - though these numbers may be dropping quickly due to the rise in temperature and patchy rain that is now showering parts of both Nassau and Suffolk County.

New York City was largely spared the heavy snow, as only 2.5 inches of snow was recorded in Manhattan's Central Park. Parts of Queens received the same amount of snow as much of Long Island, with totals of 2-4 inches were recorded.

A Winter Weather Advisory is still in effect until 6 PM tonight  for Western and Central Long Island due to the wet wintry mix that will continue into the evening. The National Weather Service urges drivers to take caution on the roads, as there may be icy, slippery conditions while driving.
