Storms were moving through Long Island Monday evening, providing a brief the antidote to hot, humid conditions.
The storms were tracked through northern Nassau and were coming through western central Suffolk., They were expected in Stony Brook, Port Jefferson and Centereach, the weather service said.
Thanks to unstable air masses coming through the region, chances are it’s going to be hot, sticky and wet a lot between now and Thursday.
Forecasters say thunderstorms and showers are likely through the evening into Tuesday. The weather service cautions that the storms could bring damaging winds, especially in Nassau County.
There’s a reasonable chance of rain Tuesday, with overnight temperatures around 70, before soaring back into the mid-to-upper 80s. The forecast is for mostly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms Wednesday, with temperatures back in the high 80s, the weather service said.
Sunny skies are in the forecast for Thursday. We also could break 90 degrees again, as well, forecasters said.
But rain could return Friday and carry through the weekend, the weather service said. So be forewarned.
