Well, it was nice while it lasted.

Dan might put it differently — he's out Monday after putting in much-appreciated extra effort leading up to, through, and even after Saturday's snowstorm — and it's not exactly Shakespeare, either. But we had bright and sunny skies and a really good snow melt on Sunday, and now you could be waking up to more flurries.

But it's OK! This latest occurrence of snow would seem to be short-lived.

By Monday afternoon, the morning's light snow and flurries will clear out, and temperatures will climb into the low 40s. Those temps dip back down into at least the lower 30s, perhaps even upper 20s, on Monday evening. However ... there exists the possibility of more scattered rain or snow showers later on.

Rain could persist and continue to fall through early Tuesday, but most of Tuesday will be simply cloudy, with highs in the mid- to upper 40s. On Wednesday, things turn colder in New Jersey, down to the lower 30s and windy, but it'll stay dry with partly cloudy skies.

The outlook for the rest of the week has yet to reliably materialize, but Dan will be back before you know it with the details you'll need for Thursday and Friday.
