Clouds and sporadic rain may put a damper on outdoor activities this weekend, with Sunday holding the most promise for a warm autumn outing, forecasters said.

Forecasts call for partly sunny skies Friday, with high temperatures in the mid-60s and winds of about 12 mph, the National Weather Service said.

Light rain is possible Saturday until the early afternoon, followed by partly sunny skies and temperatures reaching up to the mid-70s, the weather service said.

A drier day is expected Sunday, with partly sunny skies and temperatures reaching up to 77 degrees, according to the weather service.

Light rain or showers may fall Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, when the temperature will drop to the high 50s or low 60s, per the weather service.

The temperatures this weekend will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year, but will drop to more seasonable readings, in the 60s, early next week, the weather service said.

“It’s going to start to feel like October around Long Island after our warm temperatures,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said.
