Temps to Rise on Long Island During Weekend
The brutal cold that arrived with Thursday night’s nor’easter was still lingering Saturday morning, but the temperature is expected to rise during the day, the National Weather Service said.
Saturday’s forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures approaching 30 degrees as the day progresses. Sure, it will still be cold, but the forecast is nothing like what the Island has seen over the last two days with plummeting temperatures in the single digits.
David Stark, a meteorologist at the Upton-based National Weather Service, said Friday that it’s unusual to see frigid temperatures produced by a storm such as the nor’easter that slammed Long Island. The storm, he said, funneled in cold air, contributing to the falling temperatures.
The weather will warm up Sunday with forecasters predicting a 40-degree day, which will contribute to melting the large packets of snow outside, Stark said.
Rain is also in Sunday’s forecast.
The brief reprieve from the frigid temperatures will continue during the day Monday before quickly dropping in the evening.
Forecasters are calling for a high of 14 degrees on Tuesday.
