It’s a cloudy start to Long Island’s workweek, with a slight chance of showers, the National Weather Service said.

Daily highs Monday push toward 70 degrees with winds shifting northwest at 5 mph, the service’s Upton office said.

There’s a slight chance of showers between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a threat of thunderstorms later in the afternoon.

Chance of precipitation overall is 30 percent, the service said.

“A few passing showers,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said of Monday’s forecast. “Most of the day is dry and there will even be some breaks of sunshine.”

Hoffman said clouds remain through Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

Winds shift to the northeast at 5 to 15 mph with overnight lows in the upper 50s.

Tuesday opens with partly sunny conditions and there’s a chance for spotty showers, Hoffman said.

Daily highs are in the 60s.

The good news is that there’s a better chance for more sunshine as the week continues, Hoffman said.
