If April showers bring May flowers, next month’s blooms will be out of this world as there's a chance of rain on Long Island every day this week.
After a chilly overnight, rain wasn't expected Monday during the day, which will see a high near 56 degrees.
But increasing clouds and showers are predicted to return in the evening, bringing between a quarter and half an inch. There will be a 7- to 10-mph north wind, becoming from the south in the afternoon Monday, the National Weather Service said.
The rest of the week through Friday has a 30 to 50 percent chance of rain every day, with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s, according to the weather service.
“These are weak systems, they’re not producing a whole lot of rain,” weather service meteorologist John Murray said. “Rounds of light rain that come periodically.”
So far, the rain looks like it will hold off on Saturday, which will see a high in the low 60s.
