    With high pressure gone and a low pressure system passing to the south, sending showers to the Garden State, our stretch of beautiful weather has come to an end.

    But only for a few days, as high pressure builds back in on Tuesday.

    The low pressure system will pass offshore to our south later but is delivering showers to the area. Clouds and periods of precipitation today. Temperatures will be in the middle to upper 70s today. Winds out of the northeast at 10 to 15 mph. While tonight will be mostly dry, showers are possible, especially along the coast as the system pulls away.

    On Monday, a disturbance will pass through, so expect clouds and a chance of showers. High pressure will begin to build back in Tuesday, delivering dry and increasingly warm temperatures more in line with typical summer conditions for the remainder of the workweek. But with a southwest flow, humidity will build.

    BOAT/BEACH: A cloudy beach day with showers around. An onshore wind will make it feel cooler than the actual air temperature, which will peak at the middle to upper 70s. The breakers are bigger than yesterday, topping out around three feet, and ocean swells are larger, especially in southern areas. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Little Egg Inlet to the south. There is a moderate risk of rip currents, implying that wind or wave conditions support stronger or more frequent rip currents, according to NOAA. Always swim near a lifeguard.
