Sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s will blanket Long Island this week, including Sunday for the Pride on the Beach festival in Long Beach.
Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 73, according to the National Weather Service.
Thousands of people are expected to attend the three-day festival’s final day. The temperature should be about 55 by the time the event ends Sunday night.
Temperatures may be slightly cooler in the 60s and low 70s on Monday, but clear and sunny.
News 12 Long Island meteorologist Pat Cavlin said the Island was finally getting a nice long stretch of days with warmer temperatures.
“Highs will climb to the 70s and close to 80, especially as we get to the later part of the week,” he said.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday should have highs in the mid- to upper 70s. The low each night should be about 63 degrees, the weather service said.
There’s a 30 percent chance of rain Tuesday night heading into Wednesday morning. Later Wednesday, it should be warm and humid with a chance for thunderstorms, particularly from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
