The combination of pouring rain and falling leaves

The combination of pouring rain and falling leaves clogged a storm drain on Old Northern Blvd. Matthew Maderakis from the Village of Roslyn's Department of Public Works worked to clear the storm drain of leaves but couldn't avoid the spray of a passing bus as plowed through the puddle.

On the 12th day before Christmas, rain was putting a damper on holiday shopping across Long Island.

Up to three-quarters of an inch of rain was expected by Sunday night, along with gusts of up to 30 miles per hour and lows in the mid to upper 30s, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday should be nicer, with cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 40s, said Brandon Smith, a National Weather Service meteorologist. A cold front is expected to move in Tuesday, pushing the thermometer below freezing Tuesday night.

As for snow, Smith said, we may see some Saturday night.
