A little bit of everything over the next few days with a cooler weekend with more clouds:
- Some rain is moving in for this morning, and then the very strong thunderstorms for western NY and PA will weaken and arrive to Long Island closer to midnight, but thunder is still possible. Then a hot day tomorrow with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm around mid-afternoon, with the best chance being in Suffolk, especially eastern Suffolk (see 5th image).
- More clouds move in for Saturday, and it will be breezy and much cooler, and a shower can't be ruled out for Saturday night (see 6th image). Clouds may linger on Sunday with showers for eastern New England (see 7th image).
