After a rainy Sunday, Long Islanders can expect mild temperatures, sunny skies, and dry conditions to kick off the workweek, according to the National Weather Service. 

Monday’s forecast includes temperatures in the low 50s and sunny skies in the early part of the day. At night, clouds will make their way into the mix with a low in the mid-30s.

“Typically, this time of the year, early December, average highs are generally in the upper 40s,” National Weather Service meteorologist Dominick Ramunni said Sunday.

Cloudy skies will continue into Tuesday with a high near 45, before dropping to around 32 at night.

Ramunni said eastern Long Island could see some scattered rain or snow showers late Tuesday or early Wednesday as “low pressure deepens offshore.”

Wednesday will be partly sunny with a high in the low 40s, but at night temperatures are expected to dip to around 25 degrees.

Thursday’s forecast is like most of the week with sunny skies and a high in the 40s. Nighttime will be slightly warmer than the night before with temperatures expected in the low 30s.

Conditions warm up a bit heading into Friday with temperatures in the upper 40s and sunny skies. Mostly cloudy conditions are expected at night with a low near 38.

According to the weather service, Saturday and Sunday will have highs in the 50s with a chance of rain forecast for the end of the week.
