Both Wednesday and Thursday could see a few showers, though they should clear by Friday, the National Weather Service said.  

Sun was breaking through the haze Wednesday morning, but Long Islanders can expect the showers, particularly later in the day, around 5 to 7 p.m., said News 12 meteorologist Bruce Avery. 

They won't fall in all areas, said weather service meteorologist Dave Radell, and any precipitation that does pop up would be “quick hitting.”

Some areas could also see an evening thunderstorm, the weather service said. That’s as temperatures head up to around 80 degrees.

Thursday should also see similar temps but with less humidity. As the day turns into evening, there will be a slight chance of showers and a thunderstorm, the forecasters said.

Friday is expected to be partly sunny. The thermometer should reach 80 degrees, the weather service said.

On Saturday, however, there is a 30 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms, with a high near 82 degrees, forecasters said.

Sunday will be more promising: partly sunny with the thermometer hitting 84 degrees.

Those who find Sunday's weather pleasing should also find Monday and Tuesday to their liking as their forecasts are near perfect matches, according to the weather service.
