You’ll have to wait a bit longer for crisp fall weather and frost on the pumpkin at the Jersey Shore as beach weather will continue to reign.

Unseasonably warm temperatures are ahead for this week. In fact, it will be so warm on Tuesday that some records could be broken.

The record high temperature for Atlantic City Airport was set at 85 degrees in 1939.

High temperatures will be generally in the 70s this week. Tuesday, the warmest day, will feature high temperatures in the lower 80s, and Thursday will be the coolest day with highs in the upper 60s.

According to the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist, normal temperatures for this week at the Jersey Shore are in the upper 60s. Thursday will be the day in the average range.

On the precipitation front, Monday will feature periods of showers as the remnants of Nate move through the area, and Wednesday will see a slight chance of showers.

Those looking for a prolonged chilly period will have to wait.

“We don’t see any sign of a big blast of cold air sweeping from the northern Plains to the East like some people are looking for just yet,” AccuWeather meteorologist Paul Pastelok said in a report.
