Another beautiful early April day for Long Island, but it won't last:
- There will be 2 more nice days for Long Island before the cooler and cloudier weather arrives with eventual showers (see the forecast below).
- The highs yesterday were mostly around 5 PM, but a sea breeze will develop by mid-afternoon today, so the highs will generally be around 2 PM to 3 PM. By late afternoon, all but northern Nassau may cool into the 50's (see 2nd image for 5 PM temperatures).
- While there may be a couple of light scattered showers around Saturday morning, most of the rain will hold off until Sunday. I have included the rainfall maps below.
