Light rain is expected to fall into the early evening on Long Island but while Monday starts out cloudy, the sun will prevail in the afternoon, forecasters said.

The temperature will dip to the low 60s Sunday night before rebounding to the low 70s on Columbus Day with winds up to about 15 mph, the National Weather Service said.

But from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, the North Shore of Suffolk and northern Nassau may experience minor coastal flooding, according to a statement put out Sunday night by the weather service.

"Up to one half foot of inundation above ground level expected in vulnerable areas near the waterfront
and shoreline," the statement said.

Rain is possible for Saturday with a 40% chance of showers in the forecast and a high in the mid-70s. But Sunday's forecast is mostly sunny again.
