Long Island forecast: After a perfect weekend, clouds, rain off and on all week

After a glorious, sunny weekend, here come the clouds and rain.

The National Weather Service said it would become cloudy Sunday night as a warm front approaches, bringing a chance of late showers to some areas of the region.

That chance increases Monday morning. The forecast calls for more rain and possible thunderstorms later in the day, the weather service said, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

More wet weather is forecast for Monday night into Tuesday, with thunderstorms possible both days, the service said. Rain is forecast to last Tuesday until about 2 p.m., with gusts as high as 24 mph, forecasters said.

Tuesday night and Wednesday during the day should be dry, with sun breaking through, but showers could return early Thursday, with thunderstorms possible before noon.

Showers may continue into Thursday night, but the break should come Friday morning and continue into Saturday. Forecasters predict both days will be mostly sunny with a high near 75.

While the rain may seem like a lot, it’s not unusual, NWS meteorologist Jay Engle said.

With a few dry days in a row, it makes sense that rain is in the forecast for a few days, he said. “We’re kind of evening out a little bit,” he said.

But the silver lining?

“Right now," Engle said, "next weekend, the weather looks good again.”
