The wintry mix of snow and rain tapered off across the region Saturday night, making way for a blast of cold and heavy winds overnight and on Sunday.

And once the storm subsides, the last Sunday of 2012 will be a cold one: wind gusts of up to 50 mph will make expected temps in the lower 30s feel like the teens. More cold weather is on tap for New Year's Eve, with temps around 33 and snow flurries possible.

Saturday storm, which left around 3-6 inches of snow across northern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, 1-3 inches in and around New York City, and a mix of snow and rain south of the city, leaves the region Saturday night, heading from west to east.

A winter storm advisory was still in effect through much of the region Saturday night, though it expired in New Jersey because snow there ended around 7 p.m. On Long Island, the east end was seeing heavy rainfall Saturday night.

A wind advisory is in effect for Sunday morning and afternoon, with gusts expected to reach up to 50 mph.

By midnight, the weather system that brought the snow and rain is expected to clear. As the clouds clear, temperatures will plunge to the mid-20s.
