A sticky weekend is ahead at the Jersey Shore.

An offshore high pressure system will deliver warm and humid air across the area, according to the National Weather Service.

Skies on Saturday will be partly sunny, and highs will reach the middle to upper 70s. Winds will be southerly up to around 15 miles per hour.

A cold front will arrive in the area later on Saturday, and showers chances will increase at night and continue through Sunday.

Sunday will feature mostly cloudy skies and the threat of showers, particularly at night. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 70s, and winds will be out of the southwest at around 15 miles per hour. Through Sunday, the Shore could receive around an inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center.

Periods of showers are likely to continue through Tuesday night or Wednesday as the remnants of tropical system Nate move through the area.

The National Weather Service says forecasting models indicate “some differences with regards to how fast the system will move away.”
