    The heavy rain that made its way through the tri-state overnight Friday has cleared through most of the tri-state, although patch fog remains and parts of eastern Long Island may still see showers throughout the afternoon.

    The weekend wont be a total washout, though. New York City should see a mild mix of sun and clouds with a stray evening shower. Sunday will see a high of 78, with some spots of rain throughout the afternoon.
    For those who do make it out to the beach, there's a high risk for rip currents at the beaches on Long Island, and a moderate risk at other beaches around the tri-state.
    Here's the look ahead at the week's weather.
    SATURDAY: Morning fog and showers, afternoon sun and clouds, with a stray shower or storm. Tonight will be mostly clear and cool with a low of 62, and much cooler in the suburbs.
    HIGH: 77
    SUNDAY: Morning sunshine with a few afternoon showers and storms.   
    HIGH: 78
    MONDAY: Scattered showers and cool.
    HIGH: 68
    TUESDAY: Cool again with showers.
    HIGH: 69
    WEDNESDAY: Unsettled with a rain chance.  Cool.
    HIGH: 66
