Rain expected Tuesday, Wednesday on Long Island

Scattered showers are likely for Long Island over most of the next two days, the National Weather Service said Tuesday.

Chance of precipitation ranges as high as 60 percent Tuesday night and Wednesday to between 30 and 40 percent Wednesday night, according to forecasts out of the service's Upton office.

Daily temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be in the high 60s to low 70s; nightly temperatures could be in the high 50s to low 60s.

New precipitation amounts for the two-day period shouldn't be more than a 10th of an inch, the service said.

By Thursday, clear, cool conditions are expected, thanks to incoming high pressure from the north, the service said.

That high pressure is brief, however, as another storm front is expected to push in, creating the chance of rain once again Friday into Saturday.

Tuesday morning commuters were warned of possible fog developing over portions of Suffolk County, the service said in a special weather statement. The affected areas included most of Suffolk, the service said, and the fog was expected to lift by late morning.
