Tuesday's Long Island forecast calls for gradually clearing skies after rain earlier in the day, the National Weather Service said.

Daily highs again are slightly above normal, in the low to mid 70s, according to the service's Upton office.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said mild temperatures are likely through most of the week before a cold front moves in on Friday. "Some frost is possible Sunday and Monday morning," he said.

For Tuesday, Hoffman said to expect "breaks of sunshine with a few spotty showers."

The chance of showers runs into the evening hours, he said, and overnight lows drop into the mid 50s.

Hoffman said temperatures for the start of the Mets playoff game versus the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citi Field on Tuesday night should be in the mid 60s.

Wednesday calls for mostly sunny skies with a bit more jump in the winds, which blow from the west northwest at 10 to 15 mph. Daily highs in the upper 60s are expected.
