While not prototypical autumnal conditions, Mother Nature is serving up a mild and sunny weekend at the Jersey Shore.

A high pressure system will influence the weather in the region through Monday, delivering generally clear skies and high temperatures around 70 degrees each day.

The beaches might be slightly cooler if a sea breeze develops. Ocean temperatures, currently in the middle 60s, are significantly above normal for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service.

A light northeast wind will turn to the southeast on Saturday afternoon. Sunday will feature light southerly winds, which will transport more moisture into the area.

After a mild night with temperatures in the middle to upper 50s, with increasing moisture in the atmosphere, some patchy fog is possible Sunday morning before burning off later in the morning.

The next chance of showers comes late Monday into Tuesday. Mild conditions are likely to continue through next week, and there are no cold blasts in sight.
