Locals will get one day of good, post-Labor Day Weekend beach weather before things turn rainy and chilly, forecasters said.
“Tumbleweed Tuesday,” as it’s known along the Jersey Shore as a testament to sparsely-populated beaches and roads the day after Labor Day, will largely outshine most of the holiday weekend itself. It will be sunny, with a high of 83-85 degrees. A southwestly sea breeze will eventually kick in, between 14-20 m.p.h.
But it will be the last true beach day for a while. Showers and thunderstorms will move in Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service, and linger into Wednesday. Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to continue into Wednesday night, and the daytime will reach just 70 degrees.
For the remainder of the week, the sun will return, but the temperatures will be unseasonably low. On Thursday, the NWS is calling for partly sunny skies and a high of 74 degrees, and a shower is possible. On Friday, the sun will return in full, but the high will be 74 degrees again. Weekend highs will barely break the 70 degree mark, forecasters say.
