FREEPORT - Long Islanders had better bundle up: today's frigid temperatures and bone-chilling winds are expected to stick around.

News 12 Long Island meteorologists say it's the coldest weather the area has seen in two years. Temperatures tonight will dip down as low as 10 degrees, and will feel even lower with the wind chill. Wednesday and Thursday will see highs only in the low 20s.

Parts of the Island saw up to 3 inches of snow last night, creating icy conditions and a messy commute this morning. Meteorologists say more snow could be in store at the end of the week.
