Afternoon thunderstorm threat, gusty winds expected on LI
Storms are rolling into Long Island Wednesday, bringing gusty winds and a thunderstorm threat.
Wednesday will be increasingly cloudy with a few showers possible before the afternoon hours.
The main section of time to look out for is between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Look for quick heavy rain with a cold front and a chance of a few thunderstorms.
Gusty winds develop as well, with winds southwest to northwest from 20 to 40 mph. Highs will be in the upper-50s to lower-60s.
Another thing to look out for -- we could see rainbows and a beautiful sunset if rain clears fast enough. Sunset is at 7:39 p.m.
Things clear out overnight, but the winds remain. Overnight lows dip into the mid-30s.
It'll be a cold wake up Thursday, as wind chills could be in the 20s. It'll be a partly sunny to mostly cloudy day, with winds up to 45 mph in some areas. Highs will be in the low-50s.
Friday looks to be a solid return to good spring weather. Look for mostly sunny skies and temps into the low-60s.
Expect a mix of sun and clouds Saturday with temperatures in the 60s, but we're tracking periods of rain Sunday.
