The end of Long Island’s workweek offers sunny skies with daily highs in the low 70s, the National Weather Service said.

Winds on Friday across Nassau and Suffolk counties are from the northwest at 11 to 16 mph, the service’s Upton office said.

On Saturday, a warm front is expected to lift northward, allowing for temperatures to warm up and bring a chance of rain, the service said.

Pop-up showers and thunderstorms are possible. Daily highs again are in the low 70s.

From Saturday afternoon into the night, the thunderstorms could be “strong to severe” and may produce “damaging wind gusts and hail,” the service said in a hazardous weather outlook.

On Sunday, temps climb toward 80, under mostly sunny skies. But conditions will be breezy, with winds from the northwest at 13 to 21 mph.

“Most of the next seven days are dry,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said. Hoffman said a 12-hour stretch starting Saturday looks to carry the best chance of rain over the weekend, from about 2 p.m. Saturday through 2 a.m. Sunday.
