Temperatures that climbed Wednesday across Long Island and broke a dayslong cold snap will keep rising Thursday, forecasters said, but the outdoors will appear far from springlike.

After an overnight featuring cloudy skies and a 30% chance of rain, Thursday will start out dark and gloomy but mostly dry, according to the National Weather Service. The high Thursday will top out at 60 degrees with a chance of showers after 4 p.m., and thunderstorms forecast at night when the low dips to 50.

Friday brings a 30% chance of showers, mainly before 8 a.m. After that, the sun will make its way through the clouds and the high should again reach about 60, forecasters said.

Wind gusts of up to 32 mph are possible.

Long Islanders can then expect sunny skies and highs in the low to mid-50s starting Saturday and stretching into at least early next week, the weather service said.
