Sunday will be a great day to get out and enjoy outdoor activities on Long Island since lots of sun is expected, along with a high of 85 degrees and no rain in forecasters’ sights until Thursday.

“It’ll be a really comfortable day with lower humidity,” said Carlie Buccola, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Upton.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Bruce Avery predicted a high Sunday of 85 in Great Neck, Hewlett and Bethpage; 82 in Sayville; and 80 in Jamesport and Springs.

Overnight Sunday the low will drop to 67 before clouds start moving in for a partly cloudy on Monday when the high will be 82 with a low of 68.

The normal high for this time of year at Islip is 81 and the normal low is 66, Buccola said.

For Tuesday, another partly cloudy day is expected along with a high of 81 and a low of 68.

The sun makes a brief comeback on Wednesday when it will be mostly sunny with a high of 86 and a low of 70.

Have the umbrella handy for Thursday.

Buccola said there is a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms, “but it’s too far out” to know when they might arrive or how much rain to expect. The high will be 81 with a low of 69.

Look to start the weekend on Friday under more partly cloudy skies, but it will remain warm with a high of 82 and a low of 68.
