Don’t expect to take a dip down the shore this Memorial Day weekend, as cool temperatures will remain throughout the tri-state area.
“The water’s still very cold,” Fox Weather meteorologist Samantha Thomas told The Post. “You’re not going swimming, probably.”
Thomas said air temperatures will be in the mid-to-upper-60s each day of the long weekend and by Monday, conditions will become “a little breezier.”
For those heading to the beach, layers may be necessary.
“It will be a little chilly … probably more like sweatshirt-on-the-beach weather,” Thomas explained. “But the sun’s going to be shining.”
The water off Coney Island was a brisk 60 degrees Saturday afternoon, 1 degree colder than Friday, according to SeaTemperature.net .
By the end of the weekend, areas in South Jersey, like Atlantic City, may pick up some rain. “But anywhere north of that, we’re looking at a great weekend,” she said.
“It’s one of the nicer Memorial Day weekends we’ve had in the last couple of years.”
