A winter storm that could produce some snow in western and northern sections of New Jersey rolled in after midnight Monday as plain rain at the Jersey Shore.
The rain could be heavy at times through Monday morning, the National Weather Service said, as overnight lows will remain above freezing and Monday’s high will top out at 44 degrees.
The rain will continue until at least 3 p.m. Monday, at which point the temperature will begin to fall and some residual snow showers could pass through the area. Between the early morning hours and Monday afternoon, about an inch of rain could fall, forecasters said. A south wind around 18 m.p.h. will become northwest in the afternoon.
The sun will return Tuesday, but so will the cold weather, with the high reaching just 28 degrees.
