Morning clouds Tuesday give way to increased sunshine for Long Island, the National Weather Service said.

Low level moisture helped generate the morning clouds and a slight chance of rain, according to the service’s Upton office.

High pressure continues to build in the area, which means some better weather ahead, according to News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman.

“Sunshine and nice weather for Wednesday through Friday,” Hoffman said. “Nice fall weather.”

Hoffman said there will be some breaks of sunshine on Tuesday as daily highs push toward 70 degrees. Northeast winds are at about 14 mph.

Clouds move in during the nighttime hours Tuesday, with winds decreasing slightly, Hoffman said.

Overnight lows are in the low 50s.

Wednesday offers some sunshine and daily highs ranging between 65 and 70 degrees, Hoffman said.
