Long Island weather: Sunny today, shower chance tomorrow

Sunny skies and high temperatures are expected for

Sunny skies and high temperatures are expected for Long Island on Monday, June 26, 2017, forecasters said.

If you’re hoping for another day with weather akin to Monday’s dry, sunny skies, it looks like you’ll have to wait for Wednesday.

That’s because Tuesday is expected to be only partly sunny, with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms starting in the afternoon and lasting into the night time hours, the National Weather Service says. Temperatures should be similar though, with highs in the upper 70s expected.

Wednesday, along the lines of Monday, is looking at a forecast for sunny skies and no mention of rain, with highs in the upper 70s.

Thursday looks to bring mostly sunny skies, with a chance of overnight showers, and scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday, possibly with some heavy rain, the weather service said.

Daytime temperatures as of Thursday should be in the low to mid-80s, and nighttime lows are expected to be 65 to 70, the weather service said.

Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist, sums it up this way: “Most of the week looks good with more summertime weather this weekend — warm and humid with spotty wet weather.”

That’s as the start of the Fourth of July weekend could be marked by scattered showers and thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday, the weather service said.
