Dear Long Islander,
This week may have been rainy, but it looks like we can look forward to a sunny weekend here on Long Island. Thankfully, this week's showers have brought us cooler temperatures for the weekend, as well as a break in the oppresive humidity that has been plaguing the Island for the past few weeks - a welcome reprieve for many.  Although the 4th of July has come and gone, there are still plenty of great events happening on LI, as well as countless great outdoor things to do this weekend, and all summer long. Be sure to check out our Things to Do Section for all the best parks, beaches, and more.
