    After a bright Sunday, a gloomy weather pattern returns to the Jersey Shore for a few days but relief comes toward the end of the week, forecasters say.

    Skies on Monday will remain cloudy until precipitation associated with a low pressure system moving up from the south arrives later in the afternoon. 

    By Monday night, expect periods of showers, becoming heavier and steadier by Tuesday morning and lasting through the overnight hours into Wednesday. Conditions on Wednesday will slowly improve through the evening hours as the low pressure system dissipates. 

    The National Weather Service’s forecast for total rainfall at the Shore by Wednesday ranges from 1.75″ to 2″. It will also be breezy during that period, with easterly winds sustained up to around 20 miles per hour and gusting to near 30 miles per hour on Tuesday night.

    High temperatures will generally rise to the middle to upper 50s on Monday and Tuesday, increasing to the lower to middle 60s on Wednesday. 

    Then the sun returns for Thursday, beginning a dry and warmer period of late spring weather that stretches through the weekend.

    Temperatures are set to rise to around 70 degrees on Thursday before peaking in the middle to upper 70s on Saturday. It’ll likely be cooler at the beaches.
