Beautiful weather continues for Long Island, but cooler and more unsettled weather is coming:
- It will be beautiful today on Long Island with sunny skies and highs mostly in the mid to upper 60's, except cooler for the south shore and east end. From the NWS: "There is an enhanced potential for brush fire spread from late this morning into early evening. This is due to the recent dry conditions, relative humidity levels dropping to mostly 15 to 30 percent, and expected frequent wind gusts of around 20 mph during this period."
- Tomorrow will be great too, and sunshine continues on Thursday, but the cooling trend will begin then. Some showers will probably eventually make it here sometime on Saturday, and there is a better chance of rain on Sunday.
- Generally cooler weather with highs in the mid to upper 50's will be likely from this weekend and through next week.
