We have moderate rain at daybreak this morning, temperatures are mainly in the low 50s. Heavier rain is occurring down off the Jersey shore with some lightning and thunder being observed.
Yesterday we had just over a half inch of rainfall along with thunderstorms, rather vivid lightning for this time of year, in fact hail covered the ground occurred in the Brick area along the coast and even a waterspout was seen off of Seaside Heights.
Today we will have periods of showers mostly falling this morning, temperatures will not rise much as a low pressure area just off shore moves very slowly to the north. Rain will again become more likely after midnight.
Periods of rain will continue on Thursday most likely falling before 3pm. Temperatures will continue to be cool.
As the low moves slowly to our north and east we should see improving weather on Friday with slightly mild temperatures.
Plenty of sunshine over this weekend, Saturday will be quite mild but a little cooler on Sunday as a weak cold front moves through the area.
Dry and mild weather will continue into at least the middle of next week.
