Easter Sunday started out with showers on Long Island before a partly cloudy afternoon and high temperatures in the 60s, forecasters said.

"Today we'll have scattered showers, through most of the day," National Weather Service meteorologist Carlie Buccola said. "It's not going to be widespread, and we could have breaks of sun."

Buccola said it would be "primarily a dry day" with scattered showers concentrated in eastern and central Long Island.

"Nothing like what we had yesterday," said News 12 Long Island meteorologist Geoff Bansen, referring to Saturday's drenching rains.

The sun should show up in the afternoon, bringing temperatures up. Sunday night should have lows in the upper 40s.

There could be another round of rain on Monday with showers after 8 a.m. and highs in the low 60s.

"Some steady and potentially heavy rain is possible across the East End," Bansen said.

The rest of the week has frequent chances of showers, but it will be "more dry than wet," Buccola said.

Tuesday should be mostly sunny with highs in the low 60s before a chance of showers returns Wednesday. Thursday should be partly sunny again, and Friday is expected to have rain.
