Sunday forecast: Sunny skies and warmer, maybe late rain on Long Island

Visitors to the second day of the Bethpage Air Show should have dry conditions at Jones Beach, but the highs inland and farther north could be near 90.

For the second day of the Bethpage Air Show, Long Islanders can expect sunny skies and rising temperatures with a chance of rain later in the afternoon.

Sunday's forecast starts off cloudy then gradually becomes sunny, according to the National Weather Service. There is a good chance that spectators at the air show, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will stay dry: There is a 30 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms after 5 p.m. Daytime high temperatures will be near 83 degrees, perhaps a bit cooler along the South Shore, and winds will blow from the west at 7 to 14 mph. 

"It's going to feel much more like summer for part two of your weekend," said News 12 Long Island meteorologist Geoff Bansen.

It is forecast to feel even more summerlike across other parts of Long Island — farther north and inland, highs could range into the upper 80s and come close to 90. 

On Sunday night, showers, if they happen, should clear before 8 p.m., the weather service said. Overnight will be partly cloudy with lows around 62. Winds will come from the west at 5 to 8 mph. 

Memorial Day should offer prime weather for barbecues and parades, with sunny skies and cooler highs, in the upper 70s. Bansen described Monday as "a great-looking Memorial Day." 

Monday night will be partly cloudy with lows near 56 degrees.

Another slight chance of showers could return Tuesday and sporadically throughout the week, when more sunshine and milder temperatures in the 60s and 70s are expected.
