Rainy conditions continue Tuesday, right into the nighttime hours, forecasters say.

Long Islanders can expect light rain or drizzle Tuesday, with a 100 percent chance for steadier light to moderate rain then moving in and lasting through the evening, the National Weather Service said. A quarter to a half inch is possible.

Thunderstorms are possible after 3 p.m., forecasters said.

Watch out for wet roads with this “much-needed rain,” said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist, with “steadier rain for this afternoon and evening rush.”

Just before 2 p.m., Long Island MacArthur Airport was reporting light rain, fog and mist, with a temperature of 44 degrees.

Highs are forecast in the mid-40s, with breezy conditions and gusts of around 30 mph, the weather service said.

Wednesday brings mild conditions, Hoffman said, with highs in the low 50s. That’s followed by “an extended period of cold weather Thursday through [the] weekend,” he said.

The weather service is looking at highs around the mid- to low 30s.
