    After a stretch of dreary weather, tranquility returns in force for the weekend. 

    The meandering low pressure system that dumped over three inches of rain at the Jersey Shore on Tuesday and delivered occasional “conversational” snow showers yesterday is finally moving out of New England, according to the National Weather Service. 

    The system’s departure will allow a high pressure system to take control of the region’s weather, providing sunny and quiet conditions over the weekend. 

    The only wrinkle is a northwesterly breeze Saturday as a pressure gradient forms between the arriving high pressure and departing low pressure, the service advises. 

    Mostly sunny conditions will dominate each day. High temperatures will be in the middle 40s Saturday and upper 40s Sunday. 

    Looking forward to next week, except for a chance of showers Tuesday, it’s more of the same with highs in the upper 40s at the shore. Tuesday looks like the warmest day, with highs in the lower 50s.
