Long Island’s Independence Day festivities may get a little wet Wednesday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms predicted throughout the day.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Upton said there’s a 60 percent of showers late Wednesday afternoon and into the evening, and a 30-40 percent chance of rain early in the day.
But the worst of storm is expected to come late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a coastal flood statement for western Long Island Sound and the South Shore.
The storm could produce gusty winds and bring a decent amount of rainfall, forecasters said.
The steamy weather that has plagued the Island over the past week will also carry over Wednesday, with temperatures expected to hover around the low-90s, forecasters said.
Most of the day Wednesday is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high near 92.
