    A rather unsettled Saturday will transition to a pleasant second half of the weekend at the Jersey Shore.

    Mainly cloudy skies will be overhead Saturday, and shower chances will persist throughout the day. But it won’t be a washout.

    A warm front lifting north across the along with a few disturbances moving through will be responsible for the showers, likely beginning during the afternoon through the evening hours, according to the National Weather Service.

    Some thunderstorms are also possible.

    The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center places the area in the “marginal risk” category for severe thunderstorm development, meaning a chance of “severe storms of either limited organization and longevity, or very low coverage and marginal intensity.”

    By overnight Saturday into Sunday morning, a cold front will move through the area. Mostly sunny skies are on tap for Sunday.

    High temperatures on Saturday will reach around 80 degrees, becoming slightly warmer in into the lower 80s on Sunday.

    A southeast wind around 10 miles per hour Saturday will become lighter and transition southwest during the afternoon and evening. Behind the frontage passage, the wind will turn to the northwest on Sunday, blowing to around 10 miles per hour during the day.
