After two days of unseasonably warm temperatures, Long Islanders can expect rain Thursday afternoon, followed by a drop back to more normal conditions, forecasters said.
Wednesday’s highs were in the upper 60s while Thursday’s highs are predicted to be in the lower 70s. But starting Thursday afternoon, scattered showers and possible thunderstorms are expected after 2 p.m., the National Weather Service said, with a strong chance of rain going into Thursday night.
When Friday dawns, it will be mostly sunny and reaching into the more seasonable mid-50s and a low in the mid-30s at night, with more of the same on tap for Saturday.
New rainfall amounts are forecast to be less than one-tenth of an inch, except for higher amounts possible in thunderstorms, the service said.
