Lingering flurries from Tuesday’s blizzard left a dusting of snow on Riverhead roadways Wednesday morning.

But, the dusting of less than an inch of snow didn’t phase the Riverhead Town Highway Department, Superintendent Gio Woodson said.

Mr. Woodson said wind blowing snow on to the roads overnight was more of a problem than the light snowfall. But, he said overall “everything is in order.”

All Riverhead Town roads are open to the public.

Mr. Woodson said crews rested last night following the blizzard that dropped more that two feet of snow in some areas. Workers were back to plowing the roads by 6 a.m. Wednesday, Mr. Woodson said.

“We are just cleaning up the roads right now,” he said.

The next chance for snow will come overnight Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow is likely after 3 a.m. That is expected to change to a mix of rain and snow showers before noon Friday, then a slight chance of snow showers between noon and 3 p.m., then scattered flurries after 3 p.m., the latest NWS forecast states.
