    A ridge will build over the region beginning today, allowing unseasonably warm air from the south to push northward, according for the National Weather Service.
     
    The above average temperatures will linger all week. 
     
    Readings today will be 15 to 18 degrees above normal, around 20 degrees above normal Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 to 15 degrees above normal Thursday, and 5 to 10 degrees above normal Friday.
     
    The National Weather Service says records are likely to topple at most weather reporting stations on Tuesday and Wednesday, including Atlantic City International Airport, where the record high is 83 and 80 for Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
     
    But it’s likely to be slightly cooler at the beaches. 
     
    Still, with sunny skies, Tuesday and Wednesday will be spectacular late season beach days, with the only potential wrinkle being some southwesterly and westerly wind gusts. 
     
    By Saturday, we’ll return to near normal temperatures.
     
    The next chance of showers comes Thursday night, with the most likely precipitation chance later Friday.
