    A low pressure system will ride up the Eastern seaboard Sunday, drenching the Jersey Shore with over an inch of rain, forecasters say.

    Rain will begin overspreading the area during the morning hours, continuing into the afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

    “Some ponding of water on roadways is possible with heavier periods of rain,” Mitchell Gaines, a forecaster at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ, wrote in a briefing. “No tidal flooding is forecasted with this storm. Winds should stay under 20 m with this storm.”

    Gaines expects around an inch to an inch and a half at the Jersey Shore, where temperatures will peak in the upper 40s. 

    As the system departs to the northeast, precipitation will end from southwest to northeast during the evening hours, with cooler air filtering in. 

    Skies will then clear for Monday, a breezy day with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees.
