The potential for unsettled weather continues Tuesday evening, with a slight chance — 20 percent — of showers and thunderstorms into the overnight hours, forecasters say.

At Long Island MacArthur Airport, a Tuesday high of 86 degrees was recorded, with no precipitation, according to the National Weather Service’s Upton office. Overnight lows mostly around the low to mid 60s are expected.
