The start of Long Island’s workweek gets mostly sunny skies with daily highs pushing toward 80 degrees, the National Weather Service said.

The service’s Upton office said Monday that the overall weather pattern through the midweek has high pressure from Ontario slowly building into the region with low pressure in the Canadian Maritimes that will slowly weaken.

It translates to dry and mostly sunny conditions for Nassau and Suffolk counties through the daytime hours on Thursday, the service said.

It continues to be breezy on Monday, with northwest winds 14 to 16 mph.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman called for gusty winds Monday with some clouds mixing in with the sunshine.

“Most of the next seven days will be dry with temperatures near normal” for this time of year, Hoffman said.
