N.J. weather: Rainfall totals top 4 inches
New Jersey’s weather will dry out and cool down on Monday after a warm weekend with torrential rain that caused flooding in spots around New Jersey.
More than 4 inches of rain fell in some areas over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service’s preliminary rainfall totals.
After some leftover showers clear out Monday morning, New Jersey will have at least two precipitation-free days before the next chance of rain on Wednesday, forecasters say.

Mild start, but temperatures will crash
It’s a very mild start to the day, but temperatures will fall quickly Monday morning even as the sun breaks through, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures as of 6:30 a.m. range from 30 in High Point to 55 in Woodbine, Atlantic City and Toms River, according to the state climatologist’s office. All but far northern New Jersey is in the upper 40s and low 50s.
In its 4 a.m. update, the weather service said temperatures would “crash,” — decreasing 15 to 20 degrees over a span of three of five hours. Winds are shifting to the northwest and will gust as high as 25 to 30 mph this morning.
The mercury will eventually settle in the 40s this afternoon before dropping into the 20s overnight.
