The Long Island weather forecast for Friday, Sept.

The Long Island weather forecast for Friday, Sept. 18, 2015.

In keeping with being on track for the warmest September in more than 30 years, Friday is another above-normal and sunny day, with highs in the low to mid 80s, the National Weather Service says. In fact, the record high of 81 -- set in 2005 at Long Island MacArthur Airport -- was tied as of close to 12:30 p.m., the weather service said.

Friday's forecast calls for highs of 80 to 85 degrees, said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

Look for a sea breeze to develop along the coast this afternoon, the service says.

Friday night's forecast includes clear skies with patchy fog, a little more humidity and south winds at 5 to 10 mph, he said, and lows near 62.

Saturday morning will bring clouds and fog, a little more sun in the afternoon, then more clouds late in the day, Hoffman said. Highs will be near 80 degrees.

There's a slight chance of showers overnight into Sunday morning, with highs Sunday in the mid to high 70s.

A cooler air mass is expected to bring more seasonable temperatures in the lower 70s for the start of the next workweek, the weather service said.
