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.
