This weekend looks great with lots of sunshine and a nice breeze. It's a nice way to end spring with Memorial Day Weekend looming in seven days. Long Island has a chance to dry out from Friday's dousing. There's a dry stretch of weather upcoming for a few days before rain becomes prominent by the middle of next week.
Despite a bit of a seabreeze, most temps reached the upper 60s across Long Island Saturday with dry conditions. Sunday ends up a carbon copy of Saturday, with sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 60s. There may be a few more clouds in the sky, but at least the forecast remains dry. Luck may run out by Monday, but there's only a slight chance of a shower to start the workweek, and highs will be 65-70.
The long-range forecast features a dry day Tuesday as a warm front approaches from the west. Tuesday's highs reach 70 degrees with partly sunny skies. The warm front brings showers to the area on Wednesday, and keeps rain in the forecast for the rest of the week. The warm front, and subsequent center of low pressure, push offshore and an upper-level low sits over the Northeast for a few days. This low keeps the area on the cool side, highs in the 60s, and a good deal of afternoon clouds. On Wednesday, showers will be scattered due to the warm front nearby. Thursday, scattered showers may still be around as the surface low develops just offshore. This kicks away by Friday, but the upper-level feature settles in. By Getaway Day, showers will be more isolated than scattered, but clouds dominate.
A very early, low-confidence forecast for next weekend shows temperatures slightly below normal, and not much precipitation around. It's far away, so that's subject to change.
