    Periods of rain will begin this afternoon and continue until tomorrow morning, forecasters say. 

    Around a half-inch of rain is possible at the Shore, according to the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center. 

    “It doesn’t look like flooding will be a big concern as the heaviest rains look to fall to the south of where the bulk of the snowpack is located,” a Forecast Discussion from the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ advises. 

    Fog is possible in areas with a remaining snowpack as warmer air moves across the freezing surfaces. 

    The National Weather Service says rain will taper off from north to south by tomorrow morning, giving way to clearing skies and mild temperatures during the afternoon. 

    Many areas could approach 60 degrees tomorrow afternoon.
