    After a soggy start, most of the weekend will turn out dry at the Jersey Shore.

    A drying trend will begin Saturday morning as the low pressure system responsible for today’s soaker pulls away from the area, according to the National Weather Service.

    Skies will gradually clear from the southwest to northeast, especially during the early afternoon, but expect some clouds to linger around.

    Temperatures will rise to around 50 degrees in the northern and central portions of the Shore, while it’ll be slightly warmer to the south. But a northerly breeze gusting to around 30 miles per hour at times will make it feel cooler.

    Sunday will be the optimal day for early spring activities. Skies will be mostly sunny, and temperatures will rise into the middle 50s. With light winds out of northwest, it won’t feel as cool as Saturday.

    April’s first workweek appears like it’ll live up to its traditional character with mostly unsettled conditions with showers likely. But April showers do bring May flowers after-all.
