Weather still not cooperating as Jersey shore seeks to jump-start 1st summer after Sandy

The first summer season after Superstorm Sandy is underway at the Jersey shore, parts of which were devastated by the October storm.

Cold, wet weather is expected to keep at least some potential vacationers away this weekend, but others are returning to their favorite shore spots regardless of the temperature.

Rainy weather and below-normal temperatures were forecast to continue Saturday, with things improving somewhat Sunday. Monday is forecast to be the best weather of the holiday weekend, with the sun finally breaking through and higher temperatures returning.

Most boardwalks and beaches have been repaired following the storm and are ready for visitors, even as some neighborhoods near the ocean remain seriously damaged.

New Jersey officials have spent the last week touting the shore's recovery.
