Thursday's rain aside, Long Islanders have seen some nice weather in the last couple of weeks. No extreme temperatures, except maybe chilly nights for some. And summer is gradually getting into gear. It may just be the middle of June, but this weekend looks like a summer spectacular.

High pressure will begin to dig in and settle in to the Northeast on Friday. As a result, any clouds in the sky will scour leading to a mostly sunny day and highs in the mid 70s. There may be a few fair-weather clouds in the afternoon, plus a little northwest breeze.

The high starts to move offshore on Saturday and temperatures start to warm up. Highs on Saturday across Long Island approach 80 degrees. Later in the day, there will be a seabreeze which will cool off shore points on the south shore and East End. Overall it's a mostly sunny day.

High pressure moves offshore Sunday, bringing southwest winds to the area, but no rain. Highs reach the low 80s on Sunday, with cooler readings at the normally cooler shores.

Overnight lows this weekend will be in the 50s.

Wave heights will be about one foot on Long Island Sound, and 2-3 feet on the ocean. Winds will start off northwest early Saturday, but will be predominantly southwest into Sunday. Water temperatures are 57-60 degrees. The UV Index is a reachable 10 this weekend.

The next chance of rain is Monday at the earliest. Next week showcases a convoluted pattern with occasional shots at rain and storms for a few days. It won't rain all the time, nor will it be sunny all the time.
