Morning clouds, and possibly showers, should give way to clearing skies Monday over Long Island, forecasters said.

“There might be a couple of snowflakes mixed in, believe it or not,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said.

Colder weather is expected during the next 24 hours, Hoffman said, but “on average, temperatures will be above normal this week. “

The 5 a.m. temperature was 51 degrees at Long Island MacArthur Airport, but it was expected to drop into the mid-40s as the day goes on, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures dip even more on Tuesday, with the high in the mid-30s under mostly sunny skies, the weather service said.

Wednesday should be partly sunny with the high temperature again in the mid-40s, the weather service said.

Rain is expected Wednesday night into Thursday morning, and temperatures will rise to a high in the mid-50s on Thursday, the weather service said.

Friday should be mostly cloudy with a high just over 50 degrees, the weather service said.
