Sunny skies Wednesday morning are set to give way to clouds over Long Island, with temperatures rising to the low- to mid-40s, forecasters say. The next two days will be warmer still, with showers likely for Friday.

Thursday, with possible patchy fog in the morning, is looking to be partly sunny, with high temperatures heading up to the low to mid 50s, forecasters say.

Conditions could be cooler, though, for areas of the South Shore and East End, according to Rich Von Ohlen, News 12 meteorologist.

Look, then, for areas of fog and drizzle overnight, he said, with early morning Friday introducing chances for showers. During the day we’re talking “run-of-the-mill showers, maybe a couple of downpours,” Von Ohlen said.

Thunderstorms are also possible, the National Weather Service said.

Friday’s early morning low is expected to be in the low 40s, well above the normal low for the day, which is 31 degrees. And, taking a cue from that, temperatures are forecast to head up to the mid to upper 50s Friday, with 47 the normal high for the day at Long Island MacArthur Airport.

As for the final weekend of winter, Von Ohlen says conditions are “looking dry, looking pretty good,” with temperatures expected to rise to the low 50s Saturday, and low 40s Sunday.
