The dome of high pressure responsible for the spectacular weather during the workweek is moving out to sea.
Low clouds this morning will gradually lift, resulting in mostly sunny conditions today before a cold front approaches late.
While there may be a few more scattered clouds tonight in advance of an approaching cold front, showers are not a substantial threat at the Jersey Shore. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s overnight.
The cold front will weaken as it passes through the region tonight into early tomorrow — possibly delivering a slight chance of a shower — allowing another round of high pressure to build in for tomorrow. Expect intervals of sun and clouds throughout the day.
But winds will increase after the frontal passage, with a northerly to northeasterly breeze possibly gusting to 30 miles per hour at times. Seas will be hazardous for small craft.
Ocean conditions will main generally tranquil for Saturday, with increasing swells and chop by tomorrow as wind increase. With a generally light breeze out of the south today, it’s the choice day for beach relaxation. Water temperatures are in the lower to middle 70s.
High temperatures will be in the middle to upper 70s at the beaches and lower 80s inland today, dropping slightly tomorrow.
