Long Islanders can expect clouds and possibly rain Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

There will be some partial sunshine to start, with increasing cloudiness in the afternoon, said Jay Engle, a meteorologist in the National Weather Service’s Upton office.

The weather is also expected to become cooler and less humid, Engle said.

“We’ll see lows in the mid-50s to near 60s across Long Island” Sunday, he said.

The high temperature will be in the mid- to upper 60s, which is a touch below normal, Engle said.

The chance of rain will increase Sunday evening, and there will be a 30 to 40 percent chance of rain around midnight, Engle said.

Rain will taper off by late morning or early afternoon Monday, and there will be scattered showers through the day, Engle said.

Monday will be a pretty chilly day, with highs in the low 60s, he said.
