Long Islanders may get some use out of their umbrellas this workweek, with the National Weather Service predicting a chance of rain each day.

The weather will be “very unsettled, very gloomy” and mostly cloudy throughout the week, said Tim Morrin, a meteorologist with the weather service in Upton. While the likelihood of rain is low most days, that could change depending on how close a storm  developing in the Atlantic Ocean comes to the coast, he said.

Sunday night there is a 20% chance for a brief shower or sprinkle.

Monday’s morning commute should be mostly dry, but with a 50 % chance of showers after 2 p.m. The highest chance of rain predicted all week — 90% — is expected Monday night.

Monday’s temperatures — a high around 74 and a low around 56 — are above the average for this time of year: highs in the upper 60s and lows in the 40s for this time of year.

Tuesday will be gusty, with winds between 10 and 14 mph. Chances of rain are expected at between 20 to 30 percent. The high will be near 67 and the low near 53.

Wednesday through Friday will be mostly cloudy and the rain may continue with between a 40% and 50% chance and highs in the 60s each day, according to the NWS.
