A high wind warning was issued for much of Suffolk County for much of the day, with wind gusts can climbing over 50 mph.
Heavy rain started pounding areas of Nassau County around 11 a.m., and that rain intensified at various points of the afternoon across parts of Long Island.

The heavy rain led to street flooding and coastal flooding in some low-lying areas.
