Beautiful today, soaking rain tomorrow night, and not a good weekend overall, but a couple of breaks
The details for Long Island are in the forecast below, but basically it will be beautiful today (see the last image with the map for the projected highs), but showers develop tomorrow afternoon and become a soaking rain tomorrow night with wind gusts over 25 mph and 1.5 to 2 inches of rain by Saturday afternoon, and some scattered lighter showers will continue into Saturday afternoon/evening. The next wave of rain looks to be from around late morning on Sunday into Monday morning with some partial clearing possible for the afternoon on Monday, so that would be the best bet for a BBQ. It will also be very chilly on Saturday with highs only in the mid to upper 50's with highs possibly in the low 60's on Sunday.
