After a late-week blast of arctic air, Long Island got a brief taste of snow overnight. The snow came mostly in the early morning hours, dropping a light blanket across the region. In Nassau County, North Bellmore received over 4 inches of snow, and in Suffolk, Calverton topped the list with 4 inches. Temperatures are steadily rising and will continue to do so, which means that what snow did stick to the ground won't be around for very long.
Nearby in Manhattan's Central Park, 2.8 inches of snowfall was recorded, in Queens totals of 2-3 inches, and in the Bronx, they received totals of around 3 inches of snow.
Here are the reported snow totals for towns across Long Island:
