Sunny sky, warmer temps forecast for Tuesday

Clearing skies and warmer temperatures are on tap for Tuesday, though it's possible we'll have showers Thursday and Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasters are calling for highs in the low 60s Tuesday on Long Island. Overnight lows are expected to be in the mid-40s.

Gusty winds of 20 to 25 mph, with relative humidity dropping to 30 percent to 35 percent, means an increased risk "for growth and spread of any fires that develop," the weather service said.

Mostly sunny skies were expected for early to midafternoon, clouds clearing as a trough of low pressure passes south and east of Long Island. Forecasters said a weak cold front may affect the area early next week, but for now it looks like there'll be a dose of springlike weather.

As News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said, we can expect "breezy weather into the weekend" with "temperatures above normal Tuesday and Wednesday and then cooler Thursday and Friday."
