It's going to be a beautiful week:
- There is only a very slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm making it to the north shore of Long Island late this afternoon.
- The rain chances for Long Island for Fri/Sat have decreased, but it's still not certain.
- The GFS is showing a high of only 59 degrees for Long Island on Saturday, but the Euro ensemble mean is showing 81 degrees, so for now it looks like a warm day still!
- Severe weather with large hail, damaging wind gusts, and possible tornadoes in parts of Texas today (see 3rd image).
