Good news Long Island.

The weekend's beautiful weather wasn't just a tease. It will continue for much of this week when days of above normal spring temperatures are expected.

"It'll be seasonable -- actually be a little above normal for temperatures," said Joe Pollina, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Upton. Normal temperatures for this time of year would be in the mid-60s, he said.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Matt Hammer said spring temperatures seem to finally be here to stay for a while. The nicer weather should last "at least through the next seven to 10 days."

Sunday will bring more sun than clouds and highs will be in the mid-60s across Long Island. Lows Sunday night will be in the lower 50s for much of the island with some upper 40s for eastern Long Island and the Pine Barrens.

Another sunny day is predicted for Monday when temperatures will climb to highs in the lower to mid-70s, Pollina said. Hammer predicted highs may even reach the upper 70s on parts of Long Island.

"It may be cooler along the immediate shores and the east end," Pollina said. Lows Monday night will be in the upper 50s for western portions and in the upper 40s to lower 50s in the east.

Showers may move in on Tuesday though highs will still reach the mid-70s. There will be increasing cloudiness throughout the day and a chance of showers and thunderstorms. At night temperatures will dip into the mid-50s.

"Monday and Tuesday will feel summerlike and humid," Hammer said.

Any rain clears out by Wednesday when highs will be in the mid-60s to lower 70s and there will be light and variable winds.

"The day will start off with more clouds than sun, then later there'll be more in the way of sun than clouds," Pollina said. Overnight lows will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

Highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s continue into Thursday when winds will again be light and variable.
