Long Islanders can expect a dry but chilly start to the week with temperatures Monday in the 60s, forecasters said.

After a chilly and, for some, damp Sunday night, Monday will feature clouds that will decrease as the day goes on. There will be highs in the upper 60s, but mid-60s for the Twin Forks, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Pollina, who is based in Upton. Skies should be mostly clear by Monday evening.

The normal high at Islip is 76 degrees, he said.

“The first couple of weeks in June, it can still be chilly,” Pollina said.

On Tuesday, the dry conditions will continue, but it will warm up as highs hit the lower 70s and mid-to-upper 60s along the coasts and Twin Forks, he said.

“Tuesday will be a few degrees below normal,” he added.

The morning commute could be damp on Wednesday, with a chance of showers before 10 a.m., and then again between noon and 2 p.m.

Temperatures will rise through the weekend, with mostly sunny skies. Thursday has a high of 79, with a low around 63. On Friday, temperatures are expected to reach 77, with a low of 60.
