Long Island Weather Rainy This Weekend
Long Island has a wet weekend on tap, but forecasters have dialed back earlier warnings of possible “significant precipitation.”
Friday night there is a chance of rain and snow, although with temperatures hitting a low of 33—just above freezing—there is not much of a threat of any white stuff sticking, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.
The rain and snow is expected to continue Saturday morning, but little to no snow accumulation is expected. Up to a half inch of precipitation will continue after sundown as temps hit a low of 37.
A chance of rain lingers Sunday, when rain in the morning will leave mostly cloudy skies during the afternoon before another chance of precipitation at night. Sunday will see a high of 41 during the day and a low of 33 at night.
The first half of next week is also forecast to be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of precipitation and temperatures lingering in the 30s and 40s.
