Real spring weather this weekend and next week

Real spring weather has bouts of rain, and up-and-down temps thrown around in between. Of course, you get a strong rain or wind storm on occasion, and even an annoying appearance of late season snow. Mostly cool temps, but Long Islanders have seen a little bit of everything lately. The forecast shows nothing different, with mild and cool temps and chances of rain.

Saturday was mostly sunny and temperatures reached the 60s in most spots. Easter Sunday looks to be another sunny day, but a northeast-to-southeast wind will keep things on the cooler side, with highs in the 50s. No rain is expected this weekend.

Next week, mild temperatures return Monday with a few more clouds, as highs reach the 60s once again. A seabreeze will stick around, causing local temps to stay in the 50s. A cold front approaches for Tuesday, but so far, guidance shows the rain holds off until "the P.M."

There may be a brief cooldown with a stiff wind on Wednesday. Highs will be in the mid 50s. There's also an "outside" chance of a shower.

Morning lows will be in the 30s and 40s the next few nights. The coldest readings will be Sunday morning and the middle of next week.

Sunrise services on Easter Sunday feature dry conditions and temperatures between 35 and 43 degrees.
