At 5 p.m., when the temperature should be around its apex, it was 50 degrees with winds gusting to 29 m.p.h. at the official Atlantic City measuring station.
The normal high for a May 24 is 74; 50 happens to be a normal high for a Dec. 3 in Atlantic City.
The official daily maximum won't come anywhere near the record, however, since temperatures were in the 60s during the early-morning hours.
Tomorrow afternoon, temperatures should warm to a more October-like 66 at the Shore, and then into the 70s Sunday and Monday.
