    No arctic temperatures are on tap at the Jersey Shore this week as temperatures fluctuate through New Year’s Day.

    After showers this morning, skies will gradually clear during the afternoon as a cold front passes offshore. High temperatures around 60 degrees will drop into the lower to middle 30s tonight.

    Behind the cold front, under clouds and sun, high temperatures will be considerably cooler tomorrow, only reaching the lower to middle 40s. Overnight lows will drop down into the upper 20s. 

    Similar temperatures are likely for Thursday, and there could be some snow early before turning to rain around midday. 

    By Friday, high temperatures will be slightly cooler under mostly sunny skies, and breeze will make it feel blustery. Flurries are possible during the daylight hours. 

    New Year’s Eve day will see a few more clouds but less wind. High temperatures will reach the lower 40s. As the ball drops at midnight, skies will likely be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the lower 30s. 

    A mixture of sun and clouds and a chance of showers will greet the new year on Sunday. High temperatures will be mild in the lower 50s.
