After an unsettled overnight, Tuesday should be a cloudy day with gusty winds with temperatures reflecting the gradual cool-down of autumn, the National Weather Service said.

Tuesday should start out overcast but the sun should break through in the afternoon with a high near 72 degrees and winds up to 28 mph. Tuesday night will see a chilly low of 52 degrees and winds up to 14 mph, the weather service said, as a "reinforcing push of cool and dry Canadian air mass" moves in. 

As a series of cold fronts move through the region, Wednesday will be sunny with a high of 71 degrees and a low of 53. Thursday will be similar, with abundant sunshine, a high of 68 and a low of 51.

After that, the weather service said "an extended period of dry weather is then expected Wednesday night into Friday night."

Friday will be sunny with a high of about 67 and a low of 55.

Outside chances for rain arrive Saturday night, after another clear day with a high of 70 and a low of 57. The same 30% chance for rain stays around Sunday and Monday is expected to be cloudy with a high of 68.

While recent storms have featured plenty of downpours, Long Island is still in severe drought status and it's uncertain when that may change. 

"No significant rainfall expected through this week. There is uncertainty as to how far north tropical moisture will track during the weekend, and the potential for heavy rainfall across portions of the region," the weather service said, referring to any tropical storms that may head north.

Meanwhile Suffolk residents were still recovering from Sunday night's thunderstorm that also saw a low-level tornado touching down in Mattituck.

Other storm damage, such as fallen tree limbs and downed power lines, was reported in Hampton Bays, Stony Brook, Saint James, Babylon, and Ronkonkoma.
