Few clouds are expected Saturday, but the sky could grow slightly cloudier Sunday, he said.

There is a moderate risk of ocean rip currents Saturday as winds are expected to pick up to 10 to 15 mph along the South Shore in the afternoon, Murray said.
The risk is highest at ocean beaches in Nassau and western Suffolk, as well as in Brooklyn and Queens, he said.
