Who's ready for an ideal summer weekend on Long Island?

Saturday is expected to deliver mostly clear skies with highs in the mid-80s for most of the Island, said Kevin Kacan, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton.

Sunday warms up a bit to the high 80s, even approaching 90 in spots closer to the city, with continuing mostly clear skies. As of Friday's forecast, Long Island MacArthur Airport was looking at a high Sunday of around 86, he said.

Even humidity isn't expected to mar the picture of what could be seen as a "perfect summer weekend," Kacan said.
