Beautiful Labor Day weather but Franklin, Idalia make for rough conditions offshore
New Jersey will see sunny and warm weather over the next few days, but those headed to the Jersey Shore may see rough ocean conditions due to Hurricane Franklin and Tropical Storm Idalia.
Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says a coastal flood advisory is in effect until 2 a.m. Friday. There is also a high risk of rip currents through at least Friday.
WHAT’S NEXT: Tranquil weather onshore, rough weather offshore. Idalia will sit off the Mid-Atlantic coast for several days. This storm will aid in keeping the rip current risk alive, even though swells start to decrease as Hurricane Franklin moves away from the U.S.
OVERNIGHT: Clear skies. Temperatures cool to around 60 degrees.
FRIDAY: Sunny and miles. Daytime highs around 75 degrees. Overnight lows around 58.
SATURDAY: Sunny with daytime highs around 81 degrees. Overnight lows around 55.
SUNDAY: Mix of sun and clouds. Daytime highs around 88, lows near 61.
LABOR DAY: Start of a potential heat wave. Daytime highs in the low-90s under sunny skies. Overnight lows around 67.
COMING UP: Temperatures in the 90s expected through next Thursday. Mostly sunny weather.
