Mild start to the week with few precip chances

After a stint with the Arctic chill and a couple of rounds of rainfall, temperatures will start out mild this week. Along the way, there are a few chances for precipitation with no major storms expected to hit Long Island.

Temperatures soared through the 40s on Sunday with more sunshine as it set later in the afternoon. It was a dry, but windy day. Winds relax Sunday night as high pressure builds off the coast. This results in a milder southwest wind for Monday. Starting out the workweek will be sunshine and mild temperatures, as highs on Monday could reach 50 in spots. Clouds will increase later in the day with a cold front approaching for Tuesday.

Showers are expected for Tuesday, but rainfall totals should not amount to much. At least, they won't amount to the same numbers from the rain events of the past week. It's a weak cold front that should be through by Tuesday evening. Highs on Tuesday reach the 40s again, negating any off-chance of snow.

A trough deepens over the eastern half of the country into the middle of the week. Once the cold front clears, the trough digs, and a storm forms in the Great Lakes with yet another front. While there have been threatening forecasts flying, this system may bring a mix of rain and snowshowers depending on the time of day the precipitation falls, and therefore, the temperature.

Once this Wednesday storm passes, colder air filters in slowly towards next weekend, along with a pattern ripe for clippers.
