After a foggy Friday night, rain will arrive Saturday before clearing out Sunday and staying away for a few days, with temperatures in the 50s, the National Weather Service said.

The National Weather Service issued a Special Weather Statement warning of fog across Long Island, with patchy dense fog that could drop visibility to a quarter-mile at times.

On Saturday, Long Islanders and people heading into New York City can expect showers and possible thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening. Wind gusts as high as 25 mph are forecast, the weather service said.

But then there will be a sunny stretch from Sunday through Tuesday, with highs in the low- to mid-50s predicted, the weather service said.

Rain, and maybe a little snow, is expected to return Wednesday, when highs will reach only the upper 40s, and the wet weather will continue Thursday, the weather service said. Highs Thursday are forecast to be in the low 50s.
