Dry weather continues with very low humidity and elevated fire spread conditions:

- Warm today before the cold front brings cooler weather tomorrow and Thursday, and each afternoon will have very low humidity, which with breezy conditions, especially tomorrow, will bring an elevated fire spread risk.

- Very chilly/cold late tomorrow night into early Thursday morning; see 4th image, and those might have to be lowered a couple of degrees on Long Island.

- The rain generally looks to be from Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning for Long Island, but the exact timing will have to be fine tuned. Rainfall amounts may generally be around 0.5" to 0.75" for Long Island.
