If you want a nice stretch of sunny skies and toasty temperatures, sorry, you’re just going have to wait for another weekend.

This one, for the most part, will feature periods of fog and rain and drizzle, with Saturday coming in on the cool side, forecasters said late Friday afternoon.

A period of showers was expected to start in the early morning hours of Saturday, with potential for a brief bout of moderately heavy rain, and then later in the day more of an unsettled stretch of some rain, then some drizzle, then some more rain, according to Pete Wichrowski, National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton.

Chances of patchy fog were also in the picture for both days.

Temperatures were expected to top out Saturday around the low 60s and the mid-70s on Sunday.

Warmer weather was to arrive Sunday and into the coming week, Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist, said.

Passing showers and thunderstorms were also mentioned for Sunday, though later in the day there might be some sunshine, the weather service said in its regional summary.

Monday was showing no indication of rain during the day, the weather service said — just mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s.
