    After a pristine day with mostly sunny skies, rain arrives tomorrow morning at the Jersey Shore before tapering off late in the day, but conditions won’t be ideal on Sunday, National Weather Service forecasters say. 

    High pressure over the area today is responsible for the pleasant conditions, featuring a light northerly wind becoming southerly during the afternoon and high temperatures in the middle to upper 60s at the coast and lower to middle 70s inland.

    By tonight, clouds will begin to build, and rain will overspread the area during the morning hours tomorrow as a low pressure system tracks along the coast. A cool, raw day is on tap, with high temperatures struggling to break 60 degrees. 

    Winds will turn to east up to around 15 miles per hour. Up to an inch of rain could fall in coastal areas by Sunday morning, when a dry period is likely.

    But mostly cloudy skies will prevail, and showers are possible during the afternoon hours, although any rainfall will be much lighter than Saturday. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s at the coast and middle to upper 60s inland.

    Similar conditions will continue for Monday before sunnier skies and warmer temperatures return for Tuesday and through mid-week. 80 degrees is likely away from the coast on Wednesday and Thursday.
