Clouds filled the skies Wednesday on Long Island, as the high was forecast to reach 43 before a slight chance of rain and snow showers by nightfall, the Islip-based National Weather Service said.
The sun was predicted to return Thursday, with winds up to 17 mph making it feel between 25 and 35 degrees.
Friday could bring rain or snow showers, though both Saturday and Sunday are expected to be bright and clear, the forecasters said.
On Friday, the chance of precipitation was assessed at 30% by the weather service, with the thermometer reaching the low 40s.
Friday night should be both clear and cold: the low could be 27, the weather service said.
That sets the stage for a sunny Saturday, with a high just above freezing during the day, and several degrees below freezing at night.
Sunday also should be clear — though the temperature will rise to the mid-40s, the weather service said. And there is a 40% chance the showers return after midnight.
Both Monday and Tuesday could be rainy — the odds are 50% — and warm, with highs in the mid-50s, according to the weather service.
