Long Island's first week of 2019 will end with rain, heavy at times, forecasters said. 

Friday should be dry, with highs in the mid- to upper 40s, the National Weather Service said. There will be winds of up to about 15 mph.

"It will be a little bit breezy," said News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman.

Clouds arrive in the evening before precipitation moves in from southwest to northeast, mainly after 10 p.m. With the seasonably warm temperatures, it will be all rain. The normal average high is in the upper 30s.

There is a chance of minor coastal flooding on Saturday morning during high tide for Nassau County and western Suffolk County, the weather service said in a coastal hazard message.

The rain, moderate to heavy, is expected to last throughout Saturday night. More than an inch of rain is expected, with higher amounts for western Long Island. Saturday and Sunday should both have highs in the mid-40s. 

Sunday is expected to be dry with winds gusting as high as about 30 mph. 

Temperatures drop to the upper 20s overnight into Monday, which should have highs in the upper 30s. 

Monday night into Tuesday, there is a chance of rain and snow. Tuesday is expected to be rainy, with highs approaching 50.

"Still no major snowfall for Long Island," Hoffman said.
