A generally nice weather week is ahead at the Jersey Shore, forecasters say.
Mostly sunny skies are overhead Monday morning, but clouds will slowly begin to build later in the day. High temperatures will rise to the lower 80s. Winds will be light out of the east-southeast.
Humidity will begin to creep up overnight, and temperatures will be mild, dropping to around 70 degrees. There’s a chance of a shower or thunderstorm Tuesday morning followed by clearing skies. High temperatures will reach around 80 degrees, and winds will be light out of the northeast.
Mild nighttime conditions will continue for Tuesday night, transitioning to a mostly sunny Wednesday that will feature slightly warmer temperatures in the lower 80s. A light west wind will become southerly during the afternoon. Temperatures will drop down to around 70 degrees at night.
A few more clouds will be around for Thursday, and temperatures will top out around 80 degrees. Winds will be light out of the southeast-south.
Thursday night will feature a chance of showers and thunderstorms, and low temperatures will only drop down to the middle 70s. That chance will continue through Friday, and temperatures will be warmer in the middle 80s. The precipitation chance will end Friday night, when temperatures will once again be in the middle 70s.
As of now sunshine and more comfortable conditions appear to be the dominate weather feature this weekend.
There’s a low risk of rip currents for daytime Monday, but swells from Tropical Storm Gert, which will pass well to the southeast and east of New Jersey on Tuesday, will likely spur at least a moderate risk for Monday night into Tuesday.
