The unseasonably cool weather that arrived Saturday afternoon on Long Island will continue through the week except for Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist David Stark in Upton said after the cold front arrived from Canada, residents of Long Island would see a high in the 50s for Sunday. There is also a chance of light rain, especially in late afternoon and evening.

Temperatures this time of year on Long Island are normally in the mid-60s "so we may be close to 10 degrees below the normal high temperature" on Sunday, he said.

It should clear overnight with some lingering clouds Monday with a high near 60.

There could be a passing shower Tuesday morning and the temperature should warm into the low or mid-60s.

Temperatures will drop back to a high in the lower 60s on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with no rain, Stark said.
