RED BANK: SUNSHINE FOR OYSTER FESTIVAL

After a night of heavy rain, clouds lay over Red Bank Friday morning, as seen from a perch high above the Navesink River.

Some additional precipitation is possible before early afternoon, but the Greater Green will get a long-overdue dose of sunshine this weekend, according to the National Weather Service. That bodes well for Sunday’s Guinness Oyster Festival.
