Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Sam Augeri says it will be an unsettled week with some days of heavy rain.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Julian Seawright breaks down the details of the impending storm.
  • A mild and unsettled week on Long Island with a few rounds of rain into the weekend.
  • Round 1: Rain after midnight through Tuesday. Expect showers and an easterly breeze from time to time with under 1 inch of rain expected. Nuisance rain with the wet weather tapering off by Tuesday evening.
  • Round 2: Wednesday afternoon into Thursday afternoon. Potential for some moderate to heavy showers Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Rain totals 1 to 2 inches. Flood risk is still low with this system but there will be some bigger puddles around which will make travel a pain in the neck Thursday morning. Drying out by Thursday evening with nice weather Friday.
