It was a mild, breezy Tuesday on Long Island with temperatures reaching the mid-50s — about 10 degrees warmer than usual for this time of year, forecasters said.

“We’re looking at some warmer weather out there after last week, when we had three days when it didn’t get above 32 degrees,” News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said.

The high temperature will swing up and down for the rest of the week, dropping into the mid-40s Wednesday, then to the mid-30s Thursday and rising back to near 50 degrees on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

It will be sunny or partly sunny for the next several days and the next chance of precipitation comes Friday night, when rain is likely, the weather service said.
