It’s a tale of two seasons this weekend at the Jersey Shore.

Warm air will continue to pump into the region on Saturday as a stationary front remains north of the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will hit the lower 80s inland under mostly sunny skies. It’ll be much cooler, in the lower 60s, at the coast due to the influence of the still cold ocean.

By later in the day in Saturday, the front to the north of the region will begin creeping southward, and temperatures will react by dropping from north to south.

Overnight temperatures will dip down to the lower to middle 40s.

On Sunday the Shore will wake up to patchy drizzle followed by a chance of showers throughout the day. A raw, breezy day with easterly winds, high temperatures will only rise to the middle 40s, but it’ll feel cooler.

Steady rain is then on tap for Sunday night through Monday. The week ahead will feature below normal temperatures in the 50s.
