LI weather forecast: Wind, chilly temps start the work week
A cold front is coming to Long Island early Monday morning and is expected to bring wind and chilly temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.
With highs in the mid-30s, but a wind chill making it feel like the low 20s, Monday will be “breezy and turning colder,” said Jim Connolly, a weather service meteorologist in Upton.
“Monday’s going to be a day filled with wind chill,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Bruce Avery said. Overnight temperatures will dip to 24 degrees.
Clouds return for a chilly Tuesday when highs are forecast to be in the mid-30s, with a chance for rain and snow showers at night when lows will be near freezing.
Another cloudy day is in the forecast for Wednesday when it will be rainy but milder, with highs in the upper 40s. The rain will end very late at night, possibly mixing with some sleet or snow. Lows will be in the upper 20s.
Icy spots are likely for Thursday morning’s commute because of the cold and Wednesday’s wet weather. Rain and snow showers are again possible Thursday although the day is forecast to be mostly sunny. Lows in the mid-20s are predicted for overnight.
Forecasters see increasing clouds to start the weekend on Friday along with highs in the mid-30s and nighttime lows in the mid-30s.
