A cold front moving in from the west Friday will bring with it the chance of showers, the National Weather Service said in its Thursday afternoon briefing.

But to no one’s dismay, the expectation of showers for Friday's second day of the PGA championship in Bethpage has diminished.

The day of competition should be mostly dry, with “a couple of showers coming in especially towards evening,” News 12 Long Island meterologist Rich Hoffman said Thursday afternoon. 

Pat Cavlin, also a News 12 meteorologist, put that as "a remote chance for a late shower or storm around sunset."

Look for temperatures Friday to be similar to Thursday's, with highs near 70 and light winds.

Saturday and Sunday, the third and final days of the tournament, should be dry and sunny, with highs in the upper 60s.

“The weekend looks pretty nice,” Hoffman said.

The weather service said that Sunday could be a warmer than normal day for some  parts of the region.  A seasonable high of 72 degrees is predicted for Long Island.

Its briefing said that temperatures from New York City north and west could approach 80 degrees.
