Friday could be soggy and while it should be cool, rain may impede crews still working to restore electricity to thousands of Long Islanders after Tropical Storm Isaias.

There is a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms, and the high temperature during the day on Friday will be just 77 degrees, the National Weather Service said.

Despite the rain, News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said, "We will have many dry periods through the day."

The rain may continue Friday night — the odds of showers are 30% — and on into Saturday, when the chances of downpours and thunderstorms are 40%, mostly before noon, the weather service said.

"Any lingering showers should move off to the east Saturday morning, resulting in a generally dry afternoon as high pressure builds back into the region," the weather service said.

Highs in the low 80s are expected.

Both Sunday and Monday should be sunny with highs in the mid- to high 80s. The rain may return Tuesday, when the odds of morning showers are 30%, the weather service said. Highs in the mid-80s are predicted for Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday also may be damp, with the odds of rain again assessed at 30%, with highs in the mid-80s.
