Heading to the beach this weekend? Find out what you can expect by the water.

It's shaping up to be another nice weekend along the Mid Atlantic beaches and near the Bay.  No record breaking temperatures expected this weekend, but it will be seasonably hot with highs in the mid to upper 80s close to the ocean and near 90 degrees along the Bay. 

A mix of sun and clouds is expected with a general Southeast wind to start the weekend.  The humidity will also be on the rise with dewpoint temperatures back into the low 70s.  The water temperatures are gradually rising into the upper 70s near Atlantic City and South to Ocean City, but water temperatures are already into the low 80s closer to the Outer Banks.  With a slightly unstable airmass in place, a few late day thunderstorms aren't out of the question, but overall, the weather should be dry.

Along the Chesapeake Bay, with Bay temperatures in the low 80s, expect highs closer to 90 degrees.  Winds will be light, so that should bode well for smooth sailing.

Typical summertime thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon and evening, both Saturday and Sunday. 

Overall, it should be a nice weekend by the water, so enjoy, be safe, and have fun!  Oh, and if you can't make it to the beach or bay, but want to visualize yourself there, you can always access our live WeatherBug cameras on our homepage.  Now if I could just "I Dream of Jeannie" myself there...
