The stretch of pleasant weather should continue for at least one more day on Sunday but once the new workweek starts there is a slight chance of some rain coming.

The National Weather Service said Saturday night that Sunday will be dry but there will be increasing clouds. A high temperature of about 80 degrees in Islip is expected along with a south wind of 3 to 7 mph.

Sunday night should be partly cloudy with a low temperature of around 68 degrees.

The weather service's regional forecast said a high pressure system will slide offshore Sunday and "a series of waves of low pressure [will] move along a frontal boundary to the south Monday through Tuesday night."

The workweek on Long Island will start Monday with partly sunny skies and a 20% chance of showers after 2 p.m. while Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of precipitation and Wednesday will be partly sunny with a 30% chance of rain, according to the weather service.

There is no rain in the forecast for the last two days of the workweek. Thursday should be partly sunny and Friday is expected to have sunny skies.

High temperatures will be run from the high 70s from Monday to Wednesday to the low 80s Thursday and Friday, the weather service said.
