The persistent dreary conditions will end tonight as dry air begins to filter into the region.
A cold front associated with a strong low pressure system over the Great Lakes region will pass through New Jersey this afternoon into the evening, delivering another round of showers that will likely end before sunset.
As the front moves offshore tonight, a westerly breeze will push in drier air, leading to sunny skies but cooler and windy conditions tomorrow.
Temperatures will peak in the upper 50s tomorrow, and a westerly wind will be strongest at the coast, gusting up to 40 miles per hour through the evening hours.
Both weekend days will feature sunny skies. Saturday will be brisk, with high temperatures in the upper 40s and a northwesterly breeze, dropping down to around 40 degrees at night.
By Sunday, highs will rebound to the middle 50s, beginning a slow warming trend into next week.
