It’s about time.
Long Islanders have been fighting scorching temperatures for most of this young summer, and now some relief is finally on its way.
Temperatures this upcoming week are expected to be in the low-to-mid 80s, with the small change in temperature starting Sunday after a cold front passed through the region overnight.
Sunday’s forecast calls for sunny skies, with a high near 87. Sure, it will still be warm outside, but every bit should help after scorching heat lingered around the region for several days.
The mercury will drop on Monday, with temperatures expected to hit a high of 82 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
