Bu Thursday, the area is likely to hit the 70-degree mark for the first time in four months.
Along the immediate coastline highs will remain cooler during this timeframe and will fail to reach the above-mentioned levels due to the influence of a still frigid 40 degree Atlantic Ocean.
Dry conditions prevail through the week until a cold front nears the area on Friday and yields the chance for spotty rain showers by the evening.
The front may hang nearby on Saturday to generate a few more showers.MORE NEWS: Report: Sylvester Stallone Joins Mar-A-Lago
