For Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4, 2016
Partly sunny skies are expected throughout the first weekend of December, with seasonably cool temperatures and gusty winds to start the weekend on Saturday.
Highs will be in the upper 40s both days, with a blustery northwest wind around 15-25mph with higher gusts on Saturday, diminishing some by Sunday.
Water temperatures have bounced back up a few degrees over the last few days and are now hovering around 50°. That's about 3-4 degrees warmer than average for early December.
Gale conditions are possible Saturday with strong winds that may gust to 35 knots on our coastal waters, creating 3-5 foot waves for mariners. Less wind and wave action is expected by Sunday.
High tides occur during the mid to late morning, with low tides shifting towards the late afternoon and early evening. The rip current risk will remain elevated and in the moderate range over the next few days.
No matter the weather, have a great day along the South Jersey shore, and as always, stay safe!
