Long Island Weather Weekend Nice Comfortable Rain Monday
The weekend is upon us and people will be coming, going, and staying over what should be a nice weekend all the way around. Some high clouds are masking the sunshine this afternoon but the wind is light onshore and temperatures are in the 70s. Humidity levels are down from yesterday and it should remain low into Sunday. There are no rain issues through Sunday night. Nothing is close on the radar. The nearest rain is down in Virginia and it is hitting the wall of dry air that lies just to our north. You will notice clouds on the upper right of the satellite picture moving through the Saint Lawrence Valley and Northern Maine. As that disturbance swings east late today and tonight the dry air behind it will move southward and skies should clear out tonight. Lows will be in the 50s to near 60.
Saturday is a winner. It will be nice and sunny with a northeast wind. Highs will be in the 70s except a little cooler on the East End and along the south and north shore. Saturday night looks nice and clear with lows in the 50s to near 60 degrees.
Sunday brings sunshine for most of the day. The rain that is to the south on the radar can’t move northward until the high moves offshore. That happens Sunday night at which point clouds will start rolling in. No rain is forecast though until Monday when downpours will start arriving from the south. A cold front swinging in from the west creates the alley way for that southern moisture to move northward. How much of that moisture gets here remains a question. The bulk of it will likely be Monday night into Tuesday until the front passes. It is likely to stall and another wave of rain could be in the offing for Wednesday night into Thursday. At the moment we are optimistic about next weekend which includes Father’s Day!
