Temperatures for Wednesday are forecast for the mid-60s to around 70 degrees for most of Long Island, a bit cooler on the East End, but packaged with that is the chance of showers, forecasters say.

The National Weather Service is indicating a 30 percent chance for showers Wednesday, with an added possibility of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Look for winds from the west of 7 to 9 mph.

News 12 meteorologist Rich Hoffman, too, was calling for mostly cloudy skies Wednesday with some scattered showers and the chance of a thunderstorm.

Thursday then brings mostly sunny skies, with highs in the upper 50s.

As for Tuesday, temperatures at Long Island MacArthur Airport rose to 69 degrees at 3:14 p.m., and was down to 68 around 10 minutes later, said Joe Pollina, weather service meteorologist in Upton.

The high of 69 degrees tied the old record, set in 2010, the weather service said.
