The rain isn’t gone for good yet, forecasters said Sunday evening.

Monday will possibly bring showers, thunderstorms and humidity, before turning to warm and sunny weather the rest of the week, according to the National Weather Service in Upton. There is also a chance for showers and thunderstorms after midnight Sunday night, which will be foggy and humid, meteorologists said. 

The rain may continue Monday morning before 8 a.m., then may clear up, before returning after about 2 p.m., the weather service said. It will be muggy and otherwise partly sunny, with a high near 74. It could feel close to 80 degrees in northern Nassau.

Rain may return again Monday night before 8 p.m. then clearing up for what’s expected to be a mostly sunny and dry midweek, according to the NWS.

Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be between partly sunny and mostly sunny, with highs around 70 degrees, according to the weather service.

A chance for rain and thunderstorms could sweep in Thursday night and clear out Friday, the weather service said.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in Islip are a high of 68 and a low of 51. 

Memorial Day weekend may also see some rain Sunday and Monday Morrin said, with a warm front, followed by a cold front, bringing some showers.

“There are some indications that there will be a similar pattern,” he said. “It does not look like a washout but a possible period of showers.”
