Long Island, for the most part, was seeing cloudy skies Thursday, bringing slight chances of showers through the day, forecasters said.

Winds were light, and though the expectation was for highs in the upper 60s, Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma was registering 70 degrees shortly before noon.

“We do have some break in the clouds over the East End, and most of the day will be dry,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said.

There is a chance of showers again Friday and Saturday, a break for mostly cloudy skies Sunday and then rain again into early next week, the National Weather Service said.

The rain Saturday could include thunderstorms in the afternoon, the weather service said.
