    A taste of summer is ahead this week at the Jersey Shore. 

    And for a change, the week is looking mostly dry as mostly sunny skies will prevail, courtesy of a Bermuda High setting up shop off the coast. The feature delivers tranquil, warm weather as air flows in with southwesterly winds. 

    After high temperatures around normal in the upper 60s to lower 70s on Monday, the heat will begin to build on Tuesday, when inland locations will reach around 80 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. 

    It’ll be cooler at the coast all week, with lower 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday and middle 70s on Thursday and Friday.

    Inland locations will spike into the 80s Wednesday through Friday. The warmest day will be on Thursday, when 90 degrees will be in sight. 

    By the weekend, temperatures will drop to normal levels in the lower 70s as winds shift toward the west and north.
