    Spring, where art thou?

    An unseasonably cold pattern will reign at the Jersey Shore this weekend, forecasters say.

    High temperatures will be in the 40s both days, according to the National Weather Service. Saturday night will be chilly, with readings in the 20s. 

    That’s as much as 10 to 15 degrees below normal Saturday and about 10 degrees below normal Sunday.

    Saturday will feature clouds with possibly some breaks of sun, and there’s a slight chance of some snow or rain showers, according to NOAA.

    As high pressure builds in, clouds clear for Sunday, featuring mostly sunny skies.

    A north to northwest breeze will make it feel cooler both days. 

    But a southerly flow arrives Monday, pushing temperatures to move seasonable levels in the 50s throughout the week.
