Long Islanders woke up to chilly conditions Tuesday with gusty winds and temperatures in the low 30s. Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Upton expect a high near 34 Tuesday, but wind chill values between 15 and 25 degrees will make it feel much colder. Forecasters predict gusts as high as 33 mph. The mercury will drop in the evening hours, with meteorologists calling for a low of 21 and wind chill values between 10 and 15 degrees. Sure, it’s blistery, but it could be worse. In Buffalo, residents are dealing with up to 3 feet of snow. The deluge forced officials to close a long stretch of the New York State Thruway and other state roads. There’s no snow in the forecast for the Island in the near future, but the chilly temperatures will hang around. The forecast for Wednesday calls for sunny skies with a high of 33 and wind chill values between 10 and 20 degrees.

Atletico grind out victory at Real Madrid

first_imgAntoine Griezmann scored the winner as Atletico Madrid beat city rivals Real Madrid 1-0 at the Bernabéu.The result means Real Madrid are now nine points behind leaders Barcelona having played a game more while Atleti cement their spot in second five points shy of the Catalans.Madrid could have taken a lead to the interval after a fairly even first half but Jan Oblak managed to parry Cristiano Ronaldo’s vicious free-kick.The Portuguese star should have given the hosts the lead just after the interval but dragged his effort wide of the target.Griezmann punished that profligacy moments later when he exchanged passed with Filipe Luís before slotting into the bottom corner of the net with 52 minutes gone. Ronaldo then fired a header straight at Oblak with 68 minutes gone as Madrid amped up the pressure but Atleti held firm to claim the win.It was yet another defensive masterclass from Diego Simeone’s side who have now kept a clean sheet in eight of their last 10 matches. Diego Godin was particularly inspiring as he played a commanding role at centre-back.The lacklustre performance from Real – who lose their first home game under boss Zinedine Zidane – greatly angered the home fans who appeared to be chanting for Florentino Perez’s resignation in the second-half.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
