Will there be a widespread rainstorm today? No.
Radar imagery indicates showers currently moving through the northwestern part of the Garden State, but the remainder of the state is dry. Moisture is streaming up toward the northeast, and after the current shower activity moves on, we will mainly remain dry at least until the afternoon.
While there is a threat of showers and thunderstorms for the entire state today, current guidance suggests that at least for the daylight hours, activity will be more isolated in nature and not widespread. The chance of precipitation increases this evening into the overnight hours; simulated radar imagery shows the front beginning to pass through the Garden State from west to east around 10 p.m. Monday looks sunny and pleasant.
Cloud cover will keep temperatures in the low 80s inland, and mid-upper 70s along the coast, courtesy of a light southeast breeze off the ocean.
BOAT/BEACH: A mostly cloudy day is on tap, meaning that there will be some sun. With a southeast/south wind, flies will not be a problem. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, but again, this is not a widespread threat. The breakers and ocean swells are around one to two feet. The surf temperature is in the low 70s, and there is a low risk of rip currents — always swim near a lifeguard.
