It’s a warm and cloudy start to Long Island’s workweek, the National Weather Service said.

Daily highs across Nassau and Suffolk counties on Monday push toward 60 degrees with increasing clouds, the service’s Upton office said.

The service forecast says Monday will be mild, with daily highs slightly above normal for this time of year.

Winds start out from the west and shift southwest during the morning at 5 to 10 mph.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said daytime Monday looks to be like most of the week — mild and dry.

The exception is Monday night into Tuesday morning, when there’s a 50 percent chance of rain, the service said.

Overnight conditions are mostly cloudy, with lows in the mid-40s. Winds are light, from the northeast, at 5 to 7 mph.

Rain could develop after 10 p.m. Monday and linger through most of Tuesday.

“Cloudy skies, periods of rain and breezy,” Hoffman said of Tuesday’s forecast.

About one-quarter inch of rain is possible between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday, the service said.

Daily highs are in the low to mid-50s.
