Long Island Record High Temperatures Possible Today Through Monday
Islip record high today is 70 degrees and we will take that out today. In fact we will see record highs on Long Island the next 3 days as a warm air mass lies along the East Coast. As is typical for this time of year we get low clouds and patchy dense fog during the nighttime and early morning hours and you can see that on the satellite loop. However we break out into sunshine and that takes highs up to 15 degrees or so above normal. Most highs today with sunshine will reach 70 to 75 with East End temperatures a little lower in the mid to upper 60s.
We see little chance for Sunday and Monday. Both days will start with low clouds and fog. Overnight lows tonight and Sunday night will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Sunday and Monday will be no worse than partly sunny with highs in the low to mid 70s except again a little lower over the East End. No rain is forecast not only the next two days but probably all of next week through Friday.
Next week after Monday will be about a big high building into the Northeast, temperatures back to near average for this time of year, and a possible tropical storm off the Florida east coast and moving westward. No rain is forecast through Friday, and much of the time we should be no worse than partly sunny. Long Island typically deals with an onshore flow but that will be stronger from Virginia southward so I don’t think we have much to worry about into Friday.
