There's a welcome break in the humidity, but temperatures Wednesday remain slightly above normal, in the mid 80s, the National Weather Service said.

The respite from the steamy conditions across Long Island is likely to remain through Saturday, thanks to a cold front that moved in overnight, the service's Upton office said.

News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman called Wednesday's conditions great for the beach and outdoor events, and expected the cooler, drier air to last into the weekend.

Skies Wednesday across Nassau and Suffolk counties will be sunny, but winds from the northwest at 9 to 14 mph also will keep it feeling slightly cooler, the service said.

Wednesday night lows in the 60s are expected, with winds from the west and northwest subsiding, blowing at 5 to 10 mph, Hoffman said.

Thursday calls once again for sunny skies with "nice and comfortable" conditions, he said.

Daily highs in the low 80s are forecast, with northwest winds shifting south southwest to 10 to 15 mph.
