Much cooler at the beaches Monday

    Need relief from the hottest day of 2014?

    Head to the beach.

    At 10:30 a.m., it’s currently 60 degrees in Seaside Park, while temperatures are about 20 degrees warmer just over the Barnegat Bay in Toms River.

    Why?

    It’s because a southeast wind is blowing across the ocean, which is hovering around 50 degrees. 

    Nature’s air conditioning.
