Prolonged normal spring weather to wait: Below normal temperatures ahead

Spring has sprung, but when will more typical weather arrive at the Jersey Shore?

It’s not looking likely through around mid-month as the cooler pattern delivering less than springlike weather is set to continue, according to the National Weather Service.

The good news is that Old Man Winter’s recent penchant for snowy nor’easters appears to be over for the season. Another nugget of encouraging news is that through the weekend, we’ll have temperatures fluctuating, with around 60 degrees likely on Wednesday and Friday.

The warmer days will, however, likely feature some April showers.

Looking ahead to Sunday through next Thursday, the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center’s “6-10 Day Temperature Probability Outlook” map indicates a high probability of below normal temperatures.

That means temperatures below the average high of around 59 degrees during that period.

Will it get better from there? Perhaps. The service’s probability outlook through April 16 indicates normal temperatures, meaning a high of around 61 degrees by that date.

Spring might just settle in by then.
