Wednesday’s Long Island forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with daily highs in the mid 80s, the National Weather Service said.

South winds are at 6 to 10 mph with humidity levels climbing a bit as compared with the last few days, the service’s Upton office said.

“Warm and humid,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said, describing Wednesday’s forecast.

For beachgoers, there’s a high risk for rip currents through Wednesday night.

Hoffman said the ultraviolet index is high and that swimmers should be careful at ocean beaches.

There’s also a slight chance for showers starting at about 6 p.m. and overnight into Thursday morning, the weather service said.

Skies turn mostly cloudy Wednesday night, and Hoffman said there’s the possibility of “some showers toward morning with a chance of a storm.”

Thursday is mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a chance of thunderstorms, he said.

Daily highs are near 80 degrees.

Carlie Buccola, a meteorologist at the service’s Upton office, said any rainfall Thursday won’t be significant and that skies should start to clear by late morning.
