Tuesday’s Long Island forecast calls for blue skies, plenty of sunshine and daily highs in the low 80s, the National Weather Service said.
West winds at 6 to 11 mph shift to the south before noon, the service’s Upton office said.
Beachgoers Tuesday face a moderate risk of rip currents, the service said.
News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said temperatures at the beaches will be a bit cooler, in some cases in the mid 70s. Also, Hoffman said, hotter temperatures develop Thursday and Friday.
That’s partially because warmer air continues to be transported around the offshore high, the service said. It also will feel more humid as dew points rise into the middle and upper 60s.
Skies remain mostly clear Tuesday night, with conditions becoming a little muggy, Hoffman said.
Overnight lows are in the mid to upper 60s, he said.
Wednesday works out to be mostly sunny, warm and humid, Hoffman said.
Highs Wednesday are in the low to mid 80s, with a slight chance of showers during the nighttime hours.
