A Cold, Beautiful Bay: Powerful Sunset Portends Back-And-Forth Weather Week

The holiday Monday will be sunny with a seasonable high of 46 degrees, but generally cantankerous –not stormy, but certainly not nice – weather patterns are going to be the highlight of the week ahead. Meanwhile, the sun set behind an overcast sky on Barnegat Bay Sunday night, producing glimpses of light that make for some amazing photos. We captured a bit, and shared it in the video above and photos below.

The forecast, however, is less impressive.
