Rain earlier in the morning gave way to sunny skies Monday afternoon, with highs eclipsing the 50-degree mark — and dry skies at least through late Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman called conditions for the week “a little unsettled” with the coldest air of the season so far coming this weekend.

Monday night turns clear and cold with overnight lows in the low 30s, Hoffman said.

Tuesday morning sunshine is chased away by afternoon clouds and the chance of showers developing toward nighttime, he said.

Daily highs are in the mid-40s.

The forecast for Wednesday and Thursday also includes mostly cloudy conditions with a slight chance of showers on Wednesday.

Then comes Friday and “a cold shot,” said Jay Engle, weather service meteorologist in Upton, with highs around 40, down to the mid-20s for overnight lows into Saturday.

Saturday could see highs in the mid- to upper 30s, according to the weather service.

The normal high for this time of year is 45 degrees, Engle said.
