Quiet week ahead as summer winds down

While there are more clouds than asked in the skies this weekend, the pattern is generally quiet for the next several days. This means Long Island won't see much rain or extreme temperatures for a while.

Skies were mostly cloudy for Saturday and temperatures reached well into the 70s Islandwide. As a weak cold front approaches, clouds will increase and lower into Saturday night, and the humidity will rise a bit, too. This front will bring a chance of showers over the area, but the front doesn't have much to work with. Expect a scattered shower around Saturday night into a part of early Sunday. There is optimism to get a good amount of sunshine before Sunday is done, and highs will be in the upper 70s.

For the upcoming week, weather features seem to rely on a front that is stationed south of Long Island practically all week. This stationary front will pass disturbances through, and keep clouds in the forecast. It also keeps the warmer temperatures at bay well to our south.

A disturbance rides along the front Monday night into Tuesday. This may skim Long Island with a few showers, but again, total precip and shower coverage does not look impressive, even with guidance disagreement. Another disturbance approaches late in the week, and this could touch off more showers. This second system has a slightly better chance of rain, albeit a few days later in the forecast. High temperatures for the upcoming week will be around 80, give or take a few degrees. Humidity will be at "tolerable" to "moderate" levels all week.
