The workweek wraps up with another overcast, sometimes drizzly, day Friday. Then it’s cloudy and drier Saturday, with rain likely overnight through Sunday, forecasters say. Just as we head back to work Monday — out comes the sun.

Friday, looking at highs around the mid-50s and down from Thursday’s low 70s in some spots, is set to bring drizzle at times and a possible passing shower, said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

Long Island MacArthur Airport, around 10 a.m., was reporting 51 degrees, with fog and drizzle. The normal high for the day at the Ronkonkoma airport is 64, with 46, the normal low.

Chances of showers pick up later in the afternoon and overnight, with potential for a rumble of thunder, according to the National Weather Service.

Most of Saturday is dry, Hoffman said, and don’t be surprised to see a few breaks of sunshine in the afternoon. That’s as temps head up into the low- to mid-60s.

Sunday is cool and cloudy with periods of rain.

Then Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will bring sunshine and temps rising to the mid-60s, even around 70 degrees.

Patchy drizzle is expected on Friday with a chance of showers in the late afternoon, forecasters said.

The “chance of precipitation is 30 percent,” the National Weather Service said.

Friday will be cloudy with a high near 56 degrees and a low around 53, said forecasters. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms Friday night.

Wet weather is in the weekend forecast.

On Saturday, there is a 30 percent chance of showers mainly before 2 p.m. It will be mostly cloudy with a high near 64 degrees and a low around 52, according to the weather service.

“New precipitation amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible,” the weather service said.
