Long Island is in store for 60-degree temperatures and partly cloudy skies Monday, the National Weather Service said.

There's also a slight chance of showers, mainly after 3 p.m.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said Monday should have mostly cloudy skies with a few breaks of sunshine.

"Lots of clouds around today and some light spotty showers developing late afternoon through midnight," Hoffman said.

He said it will be mostly dry, with rainfall totals about one-tenth of an inch or less.

Highs Monday in the low 60s are expected for most of Nassau and Suffolk counties, with mild northwest winds from 8 to 11 mph.

There also is a slight chance of showers through midnight, with overnight lows in the low to mid 40s.

Hoffman said "nice mild weather" is upcoming Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tuesday's high is expected to be 62, just shy of normal highs, about 63 degrees, this time of year, Hoffman said.

Wednesday's daytime highs range from 63 to 68, he said.
