Forecast: Sunny but cold on LI this week

There’s lots of sun and dry weather predicted through the end of the week but Long Islanders will need to brace for cold temperatures Monday and Tuesday, the weather service said.

The week “should be dry for the most part, just cool,” said Faye Barthold, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service at Upton.

“Out through the next week Monday and Tuesday will definitely be the coldest, and we won’t see any 60s [this week], that’s for sure,” Barthold said.

On Sunday look for the skies to be sunny and for highs to reach the mid-40s with the nighttime lows dropping into the mid-20s.

“Monday will be sunny again, just cold, Barthold said. “Tomorrow [Monday] we get a bit colder, and highs will top out at freezing — 32 degrees. Lows will be around a frigid 15.

“Tuesday will be continued cold with highs right around 30,” Barthold said. More sun returns and lows are predicted in the mid-20s.

Get out the sunglasses again on Wednesday when highs will be around 40 and lows will be in the upper 20s to around 30.

Another sunny day comes on Thursday when highs will rise back into the mid-40s and lows will be “around freezing — in the lower 30s,” Barthold said.

Sun starts the weekend too on Friday when highs again will be in the mid-40s and lows at night will be in the middle to upper 30s.
