    Have we finally turned that proverbial corner to more seasonable weather?

    Perhaps “springing forward” put us on the right path, because this week’s weather headline does not include Old Man Winter making an appearance. 

    The norm this week at the Shore will be daytime temperatures alternating between the 40s and 50s and a mixture of sunny and wet days, according to NOAA. There’s no wintry weather in the forecast. 

    So the week begins with dissipating clouds, leading to a sunny afternoon with temperatures peaking around 50 degrees. 

    By tomorrow, clouds build, and showers threaten through Wednesday, which will likely be the warmest day in the week with high temperatures in the lower to middle 50s. 

    Clearer skies return on Thursday, when daytime temperatures drop down to the lower to middle 40s, which will continue through the weekend. 

    More shower chances return for Friday and Saturday, and the weekend will close out with clearer skies.

    It’s the last full week of winter. Spring begins on March 20.
