By the time the front reaches the coast tomorrow morning, high temperatures will drop into the 60s across the United States-Canadian border, the 70s in most of Pennsylvania and the lower-80s in South Jersey.

Further inland, high temperatures across portions of the Southwest could drop to as much as 10 degrees colder than normal for a day or so. Much of the interior portion of the United States will experience temperatures that are 5-10 degrees colder than normal.

Reinforcing cold air, brought in by a cool Canadian high pressure system, will follow the front. Together they will keep South Jersey temperatures slightly cooler than normal for the next seven days at least.

No air conditioning at night
