Tuesday morning was set to bring some patchy fog early on, giving way to sun and temperatures heading up to the mid- to upper 60s, forecasters said late afternoon Monday.

However, the East End is predicted to be a bit cooler.

That’s as “high pressure will remain in control into the middle of the week, resulting in dry conditions with near to slightly above normal temperatures on both Tuesday and Wednesday,” the National Weather Service said in its regional summary.

Normal daily highs at Long Island MacArthur Airport for the workweek are 64 to 65 degrees, with 47 to 48 the normal lows. Look for warmer than normal conditions for much of the week, said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

Any lingering clouds on Tuesday were expected to clear out by the afternoon, with Wednesday forecast to bring “plenty of sunshine,” warming up to the low 70s or so, the weather service said.

Thursday, forecast to see highs in the mid-60s, looks to be mostly sunny, but a slight chance for showers creeps in from afternoon into early morning Friday, the weather service said.
