Wednesday lines up as another day of mostly warm temperatures and sunshine for Long Island.
The National Weather Service calls for partly cloudy morning skies giving way to sunshine, light west winds and daily highs across Nassau and Suffolk counties reaching the upper 60s to low 70s.
The service's Upton office said the dry, mostly clear conditions should continue through the weekend, with only a slight chance of showers Friday night into Saturday morning threatening the stretch of comfortable October weather.
News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said that after morning clouds lift, mostly sunny skies and "nice" conditions move in.
Hoffman also called for mostly dry conditions over the next seven days. And despite the chance of rain Friday into Saturday, "most of the Columbus Day weekend will be dry and nice," he said.
Wednesday night is cool, with lows in the mid 50s, and a bit cloudy.
Thursday again shapes up to be a mild, sunny day after some morning clouds, Hoffman said.
