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.
