For the beaches from LBI to Cape May for Monday July 24

After a stormy Sunday night with waterspouts off of Fortescue in Delaware Bay and likely east of Ocean City and Strathmere, things are quieter along the South Jersey shore for Monday.

Clouds in the morning will try to give way to some breaks of hazy sun as the day progresses. An additional pop-up storm could fire up, but most of the day should be dry.  It won't be as hot, but it will still be humid with highs in the low 80s along the shore.

The ocean water temperature is in the mid 70s, a bit above average for late July. There is a moderate rip current risk along the South Jersey beaches from LBI to Cape May on Monday.

The UV Index is high when the sun tries to come out later today, which would lead to a safe sun time of 20 minutes. Winds will become southwesterly around 10-15mph.

There is a mid-morning high tide around 9 a.m., with a low tide around 3 p.m. during the mid-afternoon.

No matter what the weather, have a great day along the South Jersey shore, and as always, stay safe!
