Saturday turned out to be a top ten day with mostly sunny skies and low humidity. Long Islanders will be happy to know that Sunday will be a repeat before a warm-up is expected for the unofficial last week of summer.
With high pressure firmly in control over Long Island's weather, the weekend started off on a great note. A bit atypical for late August, highs were in the 70s across the Island after starting off in the 50s and 60s. Humidity was super low, except for a time after a seabreeze front developed and raised moisture levels just a bit, but barely noticeable.
Sunday will see morning lows in the 50s across Long Island, and with near full sunshine again, highs will reach the upper 70s for all of Long Island. Another seabreeze may develop into the afternoon, but nothing more than some cumulus clouds and another slight uptick in humidity are expected.
As the high moves offshore, a frontal boundary approaches from the north Monday night, touching off showers and thunderstorms. An unsettled pattern settles in right through Thursday, keeping rain chances in the forecast until then. Highs should reach the 80s starting Monday, and humidity levels increase into the middle of the week. By Friday, another high builds in with another stretch of nice weather expected to start.
While it's a bold forecast with little accuracy, the pattern shows that nice weather continuing into the Labor Day weekend. Stay tuned for updates on the holiday.
