We are ready for clear, clear skies Monday with a high near 80 degrees, the National Weather Service said.
But showers are likely until Tuesday night, and there is a chance of thunderstorms tomorrow before sunny weather resurfaces on Wednesday – and stays through the weekend.
However, the rain front will lead to decidedly lower daytime temperatures for the rest of the week, with altitudes only in the mid to upper 60s expected.
The weather service said overnight will drop into the 50s after tonight.
Although legal swimming on most beaches is officially done for the summer, the weather warns of dangerous “life-threatening river currents” for anyone entering the surf zone at South Shore beaches Monday — from Brooklyn to Montauk.
“Anyone visiting the beaches should stay out of the surf,” the weather authority said in a statement, adding: “River currents can sweep even the best swimmers off shore into deeper water.”
The danger warning is valid until and including Monday evening.
The Weather has also issued a small craft advice for all South Shore waters as well as the Eastern Long Island Sound.
This advice is valid until 6 a.m. Tuesday for Atlantic waters from Sandy Hook, NJ., To Moriches Inlet until 6 p.m. 6 Tuesday and for South Shore bays from Jones Inlet through Peconic, Gardiners and Shinnecock bays as well as the Sound, from 16.00 Monday to 02.00 Tuesday, the warning is stated.
