Some scattered, isolated showers have been in the picture Friday afternoon, with Round 2 of the PGA Championship well underway at Bethpage Black.

Just passing through, these showers “are not tremendous, not really affecting the golf tournament,” said Rich Von Ohlen, News 12 meteorologist, though there is potential for “a downpour around 7, 8 p.m.”

Chances of precipitation continue through around 8 p.m. for Long Island, according to the National Weather Service forecast. While areas farther to the west could see a thunderstorm, which would mean heavier rainfall, showers only are expected for the Island, said Faye Morrone, weather service meteorologist in Upton.

Skies clear for Saturday — make that “super Saturday,” Von Ohlen said — a beautiful day: sunny with temperatures in the 70s.

Sunday, the final day of play, will bring a few more clouds, he said, again with highs around 70. 

Compared with the cool, damp weather pattern that’s been in place, that’s “not too shabby,” he said.

The Sunday evening and overnight hours do bring chances of showers.
