Long Island weather: Storms may begin Thursday evening  


Hurdles facing those already looking ahead to the weekend include possibly stormy weather Thursday evening that could last into Friday morning, forecasters for the National Weather Service in Islip said.

This afternoon, “There could be an isolated shower across Long Island, but it appears most of it might wait for this evening,” said Jay Engle, weather service meteorologist.

An approaching warm front prompted the service to issue a hazardous weather warning for that period, advising heavy rain could cause localized flooding.

The sunshine should return later on Friday and the high is expected to reach about 86, setting the stage for more of the same during the weekend, the weather service said.

The service said it did not anticipate issuing any hazardous weather alerts through Wednesday.

Sunny skies are forecast for both Saturday and Sunday, with the thermometer registering in the upper 80s, according to the weather service. 

And humidity likely will remain in the comfort zone.
