    The impressive warmth may be coming to an end at the Shore, but no true Arctic air is on the horizon. 

    Daytime temperatures will be around normal tomorrow, spiking above average for Tuesday through Thursday, before dropping to more seasonable levels for the end of the week, according to the National Weather Service. 

    Clouds will build Monday ahead of a storm system, featuring highs in the lower to middle 40s.

    As the system begins moving in Monday night, temperatures will begin rising overnight, peaking around 60 degrees Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures won’t drop much Tuesday night, rebounding back to the lower to middle 50s on Wednesday.

    Rain will be heavy at times between late Monday night and early Tuesday evening, with around an inch possible, and it will be breezy. 

    Conditions will improve during the day on Wednesday, but another round of showers is possible during the evening hours. Mainly cloudy skies are on tap for New Year’s Eve, but no rain is expected. Temperatures will drop down to the middle 30s.

    Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for New Year’s Day through Sunday, featuring seasonable temperatures in the lower 40s.
