Long Island weather: Storm chances Sunday evening but a sunny Monday

Potential storms Sunday night are expected to turn to sunny skies Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

There is a fair chance for showers and thunderstorms to hit the area Sunday evening and progress overnight before clearing up by Monday morning, said Matthew Wunsch, a weather service meteorologist in Upton.

But Monday was expected to be sunny and dry, with a high near 81 and a low around 65.

More cloud cover was expected to roll in Tuesday, but high pressure should keep the day dry, with a high near 80, Wunsch said.

But starting Wednesday, "things are a little more uncertain" thanks to a front offshore that carries the potential for showers through Friday, Wunsch said.

"Although there is a chance of rain pretty much Wednesday through Friday, it's not going to be continuous," Wunsch said. "It's not going to be a wash out all those days. It should be more scattered than anything."

The chance of showers are 40% Wednesday, 50% Thursday and 30% Friday, according to the weather service. Highs are expected to be in the upper 70s and low 80s.

The East End is more likely to see rain during that time than areas further west, Wunsch said.

The forecast could brighten up for next weekend, with partly sunny skies and highs around 83 and 84 for Saturday and Sunday.
