Spring weather comes early to Long Island

Long Islanders enjoyed a taste of spring Sunday, with a high of 57 degrees at Republic Airport in Farmingdale - and the National Weather Service reports there's more nice weather to come.

Sunday's high was far shy of the record for the day, 68, in 1987, but welcome all the same as a winter of heavy snows and hard freezes fades.

The sun will shine and highs will be in the 50s through Wednesday, said weather service meteorologist Gary Conte. Those are warm temperatures for this time of year, but short of record territory, Conte said.

"We are basically enjoying early springtime weather," he said, "which is great."

Expect the run of pleasant weather to end Thursday, Conte said, when a low pressure system forming in the Southwest Sunday is expected to bring rain to the area.
