News 12 Long Island meteorologist Rich Hoffman said Christmas Eve is expected to be wet during the day with rainfall amounts of up to one-quarter to one-half inch.
Rain on Saturday is expected to let up starting at about 3 p.m., forecasters said. High temperatures are predicted to be in the high 40s.
Conditions clear overnight — in time for Santa Claus to make his rounds — and then it’s a sunny Sunday Christmas, with daily highs in the low 40s.
“No white Christmas for Long Island,” Hoffman said.
