Focus: Dank Fair Haven Dock Daze

After a brief respite of sunshine and classic crisp fall weather, damp, windy days are here again in the Rumson-Fair Haven area.  But, the sun will make a return appearance by Saturday, the National Weather Service predicts.

Until then, the scene down by the Fair Haven Dock is still as serene as ever. As always, it sets the tone for some contemplation and hometown soul searching. The sight of the scene brings the same comfort and warmth as usual. Venturing into it, however, may soak you in a damp chill.
Take a look at the scene and see what’s in store with the weather … 
Thursday’s temperatures will reach a high of 42 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. And it’s going to be a sopping wet day, with the chance of precipitation at 100 percent and most of the rain coming after 2 p.m. It will also be breezy, with an east wind ramping up to 22 mph.
Tonight the rain continues with east winds hitting 33 mph and gusts of up to 49. The temperature, however, is expected to rise to 51 degrees by 5 a.m. on Friday.
