I suspect you'll have a long drive north to find anything decent open that weekend. Anything close enough to drive probably isn't worth it based on the current weather. Look for some mt biking on the island (recommend Rocky Point trails) or on the way home (Jim Thorpe). Or see if you can score some sea kayaks and do some paddling in LI Sound and the bays. Super clear water this time of year.
If none of that works out for you, definitely swing through the Jamaica Bay Wildlife refuge early one morning and take the pond walk to see more variety of migrating waterfowl than you've probably ever seen. Amazing to see with the city skyline in the background and JFK right next door (was especially cool when the Concorde was still flying, to hear it scream up into the sky on a quiet sunny weekend morn).
Where are you going to be in LI?
