Rainy, chilly weather on Saturday will soon make way for sunny skies and a dry Sunday, the National Weather Service said.

The morning rain will likely start to wind down “in the next few hours,” said David Stark, meteorologist with the weather service’s Upton bureau. “Probably by the early afternoon the light rain, drizzle should stop, and it’ll be cloudy for the rest of the day, breezy and chilly.”

Temperatures will stay about 5 to 10 degrees below normal in the mid-40s, Stark said, because of the lingering precipitation and cloud cover.

Saturday will be a “mixed bag” of weather conditions, said Matt Hammer, a meteorologist with News 12 Long Island.

“We have some drizzling and a few reports of sleet and snow mixing in, but nothing too heavy,” Hammer said. “It’s just a gloomy start to the weekend.”

Winds gusting from 20 to 30 mph will make temperatures feel in the 20s to low 30s, Hammer said.

The clouds will start to clear Saturday night into Sunday, when drier conditions start to prevail Stark said. Temperatures overnight will be in the 30s.

“It’ll stay quite breezy, but a little drier tonight with a few left over showers for the East End,” Hammer said Saturday.

Sunday “looks like a really nice day,” Stark said, as temperatures rise to the mid- to upper 50s with mostly sunny skies and a slight breeze, “but nothing too strong.”

“We have a gorgeous second half of the weekend,” Hammer said. “Plenty of sunshine. It’s a tale of two halves this weekend.”

Spring’s often tumultuous weather patterns will continue through the week, with a mild day on Monday followed by more rain on Tuesday, Hammer said. Wednesday is expected to be dry before more rain comes into the area late Thursday into Friday.
