    A cold front will sweep through the area tomorrow night, sweeping away the recent unseasonably warm weather, forecasters say.

    After another day of near record to record high temperatures, tomorrow will feature readings a bit cooler around 70 degrees.

    Then, shower chances will increase tomorrow afternoon into the evening hours as a strong cold front approaches and eventually passes. Nighttime lows will drop into the upper 40s at the Jersey Shore, a distinct change from recent nights.

    By Saturday, noticeably cooler weather is in the forecast, with highs in the upper 50s.

    And it will feel cooler with northwest winds at 15 to 25 miles per hour gusting to near 40 miles per hour.Shower chances will begin to diminish through the morning.

    Similar temperatures and wind conditions are likely for Sunday, but skies will be sunny.

    Seasonable and dry weather is in the forecast through mid next week.

    No heat is in sight.
