Town snow plows and sanders have been busy since the snowstorm began late Thursday evening, and are still going strong as Friday morning arrived.
A few more inches may hit between Sayville and Blue Point as the storm ebbs away later today.
According to Mike Silva, meteorologist at the National Weather Service Office in Upton, the storm held no surprises.
"This pretty much panned out exactly as we expected," he said. "We expected six to 10 inches of snow, with maybe a little bit higher out east. Some places managed to touch a foot."
Winds, however, weren't quite as fierce as initially predicted, but were starting to pick up Friday morning, with "very dangerous" temperatures across Long Island. With the wind chill factor, some areas felt as though it were minus 11 degrees, with a range of minus three to minus eight.
Temperatures are not expected to rise higher than the upper teens for most of Long Island Friday.
Two last bands of snow are slated to continue moving across Long Island Friday morning, one in Suffolk County and one over northern Nassau; another inch or two of snow will fall by 1 p.m., when the white stuff should disappear from the area completely.
Here are the latest snowfall accumulations, according to the NWS:
North Babylon: 12 inches
