Friday — day two of summer — is looking to bring partly to mostly sunny skies, with temperatures warming up to the low to mid-70s, forecasters say.

“An onshore wind and intervals of mid and high level clouds,” will account for those cooler than normal temperatures, the National Weather Service said in its regional summary late Thursday afternoon. The normal high for the day at Long Island MacArthur Airport is 79 degrees.

Then, along comes a “50/50 weekend,” said Rich Hoffman, News 12 Long Island meteorologist.

Saturday brings chances of rain, potentially starting in the early morning, but with a higher likelihood for the nighttime hours, the weather service said. Thunderstorms could also be in the picture at night. The day was slated to see high temperatures in the low to mid-70s.

If you’re contemplating outdoor activities for the weekend, Sunday would be your day, as it was expected to bring partly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid-80s, with the lower 70s for the East End, the weather service said.
