Spring has arrived but the winterlike days are not yet over.

The frigid conditions are expected to continue through Wednesday, with temperature highs in the lower 40s, according to the National Weather Service in Islip.

Monday will be sunny. The temperature high will be just above freezing but wind chill values could make it feel more like between 10 and 20 degrees, the weather service said. Wind gusts could go as high as 33 miles per hour.

The temperature dips to about 20 on Monday night. That would be 15 degrees lower than the normal minimum for the date in Islip, and just 2 degrees above the record low set in 1966.

Tuesday is forecast to be sunny with a high near 40 degrees and an overnight low of 24 degrees. Wednesday's forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds and a high near 43 and a low at night of 37.

Temperatures should warm by Thursday when the high hits 58 degrees with a 40% chance of showers after 2 p.m., the weather service said. By Thursday night, the chance of rain rises to 90% with a low around 49 degrees.

More showers are in the Friday forecast with a high near 59 and a nighttime low of about 38. The chance of showers Friday is 60%.

Saturday may bring a reprieve from the wet weather with mostly sunny skies and a high in the lower 50s, according to the weather service.
