Long Islanders will receive a Mother’s Day present in the form of great weather on Sunday after some morning clouds and possible showers.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Norm Dvoskin said there will be a big break from last week’s dreary, rainy days and Saturday’s unseasonably cool temperatures that averaged 10 degrees below normal.

Dvoskin said on Sunday things turn much more spring like again when Roslyn will reach a high of 65 and it will be 63 in Kings Park and Manorville, 64 in Merrick, and just a little cooler on the East End where the high will reach only 60 in East Hampton and Southold.

Any showers will come in the morning Sunday and then will clear out for a mix of sun and clouds for the rest of the day and at night look for a low of 45.

Lots of sun is ahead for the beginning of the workweek on Monday when the high will reach 70 and temperatures dip to 45 at night.

A mix of clouds and sun is in the forecast from Tuesday through Thursday, but Dvoskin said no rain is predicted until Friday.

On Tuesday a high of 67 is expected with a low of 49.

Wednesday’s high will be a little warmer at 69 and the nighttime low will be 50.

A high of 68 and a low of 54 is Thursday’s forecast and on Friday rain returns when the high will be 67 and the low 53.

Joe Pollina, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service at Upton, said, “This week we’ll see temperatures closer to normal.” He said the normal high for the week at Islip is 65 and the normal low 47.

Though Pollina predicted there could be a 15 percent chance of a passing shower anytime between 8 p.m. Tuesday and sunrise on Wednesday, he said, “Generally the wet weather is behind us.”
