A cloudy, damp and warm Monday is expected to kick off the week on Long Island, according to the National Weather Service in Upton.

A cold front will pass over Long Island during the morning commute, bringing light showers, meteorologist Nelson Vaz said Sunday night.

Highs are expected to be in the unseasonable upper 60s. A tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain is expected to fall in the morning, Vaz said. The front will be beyond the Island by the afternoon and drier conditions will follow.

On Tuesday — Election Day — look for temperatures to start cooling off dramatically when a mix of sun and clouds is in the forecast, along with a high of 56 and a low of 38, meteorologists said.

Finally, some sun returns on Wednesday, when it will be partly sunny with a high of 52 and a nighttime low of 38.

Mostly sunny skies are ahead for Thursday when the high will be 54 and the overnight low will be 39.

Sunny skies return again to open the weekend on Friday, when the high will be 50 degrees and the low 29.
