Unseasonable chill forecast for week

A slightly unseasonable chill will make a cameo this week, but springlike weather is mostly in the forecast, according to the National Weather Service.

Easter Sunday's temperatures will be in the mid-50s, with the warmest temperatures coming in the early afternoon, said Dan Hofmann, meteorologist with the service's Upton bureau.

Expect afternoon breezes around 30 m.p.h. as well, Hofmann said.

But rain showers will visit the area Sunday evening between 5 and 9 p.m. Temperatures overnight will be about 40 degrees.

Monday is slated to be another mild day, with highs in the mid-50s and a slight chance of showers during the day. It will be breezy, with wind gusts about 30 m.p.h., Hofmann said. Overnight lows will be around freezing for most of Long Island.

Colder temperatures visit Tuesday, with highs reaching only into the mid- to upper 40s, and overnight lows about freezing, Hofmann said. Expect dry weather, with partly cloudy skies.

Wednesday will continue the pattern, again with highs in the mid- to upper 40s and lows around freezing.

Temperatures will reach back into the 50s on Thursday and Friday, Hofmann said, with overnight lows on both nights in the upper 30s. There will be a slight chance of rain showers at the end of the week, he said.
