    Early November is likely to feature above normal temperatures, forecasters say.

    The National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center forecasts between a 70 and 80 percent chance of above normal temperatures in New Jersey between Nov. 1 and Nov. 5. A 60 to 70 chance of similar temperatures continues through Nov. 9.

    But that doesn’t imply summer-like heat. 

    In Toms River, the normal temperature for the first week of November is around 60 degrees, according to the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist. 

    The current NOAA forecast for Toms River calls for 61 degrees on Sunday (Nov. 1) and 62 degrees on Monday.

    According to forecasters, it’s due to the jet stream keeping a cooler air mass in Canada.
