The mainly dry week ahead begins mild and ends cool

    The week ahead will be mainly dry, but the big storyline at the Jersey Shore will be the temperature change following a cold front passage on Wednesday.

    Temperatures ahead of the front on Tuesday will peak in the low to middle 70s, dropping to the upper 50s on Thursday, according to NOAA. It then gets cooler from there. 

    At the Jersey Shore, sunshine will dominate on Monday, with high temperatures reaching the lower 60s. Overnight lows will not be as cold as Sunday, dropping to the lower 50s. 

    With a mild southerly flow, Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week. Under sunny skies, high temperatures will reach the lower to middle 70s. Overnight lows will only drop to around 60 degrees.

    Wednesday will be the unsettled day of the week. Remaining warm in the upper 60s, skies will be mostly cloudy, and there will be shower chances as a cold front passes. But precipitation will be light, according to the National Weather Service. Overnight lows will be around 50 degrees.

    By Thursday, under sunny skies, cooler air begins its invasion, with high temperatures only reaching the upper 50s.

    It then gets cooler each day, with highs in the middle 50s on Halloween, upper 40s Saturday, and the lower 50s Saturday, according to NOAA. A stiff breeze will make it feel cooler this weekend. Each night will feature low temperatures in the 40s. 

    But there will be sunshine each day to help mitigate the cooler weather.
