Sunny skies, typical early August temperatures and humidity are predicted for both Saturday and Sunday, though some seaside areas might see rain, the National Weather Service said.

Predicting Saturday's high to reach 82 degrees, it added a "few storms may also be possible early this afternoon along the sea breeze front across parts of Long Island."

The same might hold true for Sunday: "Isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms may also be possible with the cold frontal passage late Sunday," forecasters said.

Sunday will be warmer: The thermometer might reach 86 degrees.

"Temperatures this weekend should be close to seasonal averages," forecasters said.

Both Monday and Tuesday look at least partly sunny with highs ranging from the low to mid-80s, the weather service said.

However, the odds of showers start rising on Tuesday night, and Wednesday's forecast includes a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a high near 85 degrees.

The forecast for Thursday and Friday is almost exactly the same, the weather service said.
