After a recent stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures, cooler weather is ahead this week at the Jersey Shore.

November is typically a transitional month, and this week will be no different. After a mild Monday with high temperatures around 70 degrees, the remainder of the week will feature more traditional autumn weather, according to the National Weather Service.

While cooler air will filter in behind a cold front, it won’t be a frigid blast. High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 50s Tuesday through Friday.

The coolest day of the week will be Saturday, featuring high temperatures around 50 degrees — up to 10 degrees below normal — before warming back to the middle 50s on Sunday.

Overnight lows will be in the middle 40s through Friday, when nighttime temperatures will drop down in the middle 30s before warming to around 40 degrees on Saturday night.

Normal high temperatures for the Jersey Shore during the second week of November are in the middle to upper 50s. Tuesday and Wednesday will be about five degrees below normal, followed by slightly below normal on Thursday.

Still, while not a true cold blast, it’s the coolest stretch of air since last spring, according to AccuWeather.com.

On the precipitation front, Monday is likely to be the wettest day of the week. A chance of rain will remain for Tuesday and Wednesday before drying out through Saturday. The next chance of rain comes on Sunday.
