News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman sees some areas with temperatures in the low 80s on the first day of “meteorological summer,” or the months of June, July and August.

The service said cooler and drier air will continue to spread into the Northeast, resulting in mostly sunshine on Wednesday and Thursday.

An easterly air flow developing late Wednesday and into Thursday morning will result in increasing clouds, the service said.

Hoffman said overnight lows will be in the upper 50s and low 60s.
