WEATHER TO BELIEVE ONE OR THE OTHER…

It was a coats-off afternoon on Monmouth Street in Red Bank Thursday, but temperatures over the next few days won’t be as conducive to t-shirts. Or so says one forecast. (Click to enlarge)

From a summery high of 72 degrees Thursday, the greater Red Bank Green settles back into more seasonable weather over the next few days.

Or so says the National Weather Service. The Weather ChannelĀ  has a somewhat different take. Its outlook is for noticeably higher daily highs than the NWS calls for, particularly for Sunday and Tuesday.

Here’s the extended forecast from the NWS, with the Weather Channel outlook for daily high temperatures in brackets:
