The start of the week will see warmer-than-average temperatures, but potential showers and cloudy skies are also in Long Island's forecast.

Partly cloudy skies with a low around 50 is the forecast for Sunday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday will bring temperatures in the high 50s and low 60s with a 40% chance of showers after 4 p.m. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees higher than the average for this time of the year, said David Stark, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Showers are possible Monday night with a low of 37.

The weather will "cool off to seasonable temperatures," on Tuesday, Stark said, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 40s. Northwest winds will be between 10 to 14 mph and gusts as high as 24 mph but they are expected to calm in the evening.

There is a 50% chance of showers Wednesday afternoon with a high in the mid-40s. At night, the temperature will dip to 34, the weather service said.

Thursday has a slight chance of rain but otherwise partly sunny and Friday also could see showers and clouds. Both will have highs in the upper 40s, Stark said.

Rain is likely to continue on Friday night and into Saturday, which will see a high in the low 50s. Sunday's forecast features sunshine with a high near 40.
