Showers are likely overnight with a chance of thunderstorms Tuesday before sunny skies reemerge Wednesday — and remain through the weekend.

After the rain front passes, the daytime temperatures will dip for the remainder of the week, with highs only in the mid-to-upper 60s, the National Weather Service said.

The weather service said temperatures into early Tuesday morning will dip into the 50s before warming up to 77 as the day progresses.

A small craft advisory for all South Shore waters, as well as the eastern Long Island Sound, expired Monday night.

A gale warning remains in effect until 6 a.m. Tuesday for Atlantic Ocean waters from Sandy Hook, New Jersey to Moriches Inlet. A separate gale warning for Long Island Sound and South Shore bays, from Jones Inlet through Peconic, Gardiners and Shinnecock bays ends at 2 a.m. Tuesday, according to the weather service.

On Wednesday the sun returns and remains, with occasional clouds, through the weekend. The daytime average high through Saturday will be 68, dropping to about 52 at night.
