    After a stellar weekend, clouds will increase Monday followed by rain showers later in the day, according to the National Weather Service. 

    Periods of heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms are possible at night, the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ advises in its latest forecast discussion. 

    By Tuesday, clouds will mix with sunshine, and generally pleasant weather is expected onward through the week, forecasters say. 

    Temperatures will run 5 to 10 degrees above normal Tuesday, cooling to near normal Wednesday and Thursday, then again above normal for Friday into the weekend, according to the forecast discussion.

    But the cold Atlantic Ocean will keep coastal areas cooler than inland locations.
