Sunday will be sunny with just a few passing clouds, and high temperatures near 60 degrees for much of the island, said Dan Hofmann, meteorologist with the service's Upton bureau. Sunday afternoon will see blustery winds, with gusts of wind up to 25 mph, he said.
But lows on Sunday will drop into the upper 30s to near 40 across most of the island, with the Pine Barrens seeing lows just below freezing, he said.
Monday will be fair and dry, with highs in the upper 50s and lows in the 40s. Tuesday will be nearly the same, with slightly warmer highs in the lower 60s and lows in the 40s, Hofmann said.
A slight chance of rain comes on Wednesday, with temperatures in the mid-60s and overnight lows in the upper 40s.
Thursday will be a mix of sun and clouds, with highs in the lower 60s and lows around 50.
Another chance of rain, this time with thunderstorms, appears on Friday. Highs will be in the low to mid-60s, with lows in the 40s that day, Hofmann said.
