    The roller coaster temperature ride typical of autumn will continue this week at the Jersey Shore.

    After another pleasant day, tomorrow will start out chilly. Under sunny skies, temperatures will rise to about 10 degrees above normal, or the lower 60s, according to the National Weather Service. 

    Clouds will begin to increase tomorrow night, with temperatures dropping to the middle to upper 40s.

    By Wednesday, clouds will remain, and showers are possible, particularly in southern areas, as a cold front approaches and passes. Temperatures will be seasonable in the middle to upper 50s due to cloud cover, the local National Weather Service forecasts. 

    “This should be our only opportunity for widespread measurable rain this week and probably [un]til the middle of next week,” a late morning forecast discussion from the service says. 

    Following the cold front passage, Thursday will be mostly sunny and breezy, featuring temperatures near or just above normal, or the upper 50s.

    Similar conditions are likely for Friday, but it’ll be slightly warmer, topping out around 60 degrees, and a few more clouds will build during the afternoon.

    Saturday will feature perhaps a few more clouds, and it’ll remain breezy.

    High temperatures will be about five to 10 degrees below normal in the middle to upper 40s, according to the National Weather Service. Saturday night is likely to features the coldest temperatures of the week, dropping down to the 30s. 

    Conditions improve for Sunday with more sunshine, and temperatures will rebound back to the lower 50s. Monday is likely to begin with slightly warmer temperatures that are at or just above normal.
