Overnight Monday is going to be bundle-up time for anyone out and about, as temperatures are forecast to dip to the midteens to around 20 degrees in the stretch before sunrise Tuesday, forecasters said.

Then, “lighter winds and more sunshine on Tuesday will allow temperatures to rise a few degrees warmer than" they did on Monday, the National Weather Service said, with highs in the upper 30s expected. Normal for the day is 38 degrees at Long Island MacArthur Airport.

Monday saw the temperature rise to just 33 degrees at the airport.

Wednesday, also with sunny skies, could make it up to around 40 degrees during the day, the weather service said, before a dip to the low 30s for highs on Thursday.

Thursday night brings chances of snow, turning to a wintry mix, then all rain for Friday morning, said forecasters, who are also monitoring conditions that could mean snow, rain and or a wintry mix for Saturday night into Sunday.

It’s going to take a few more days for that picture to take shape, forecasters said.
