Beaches and boardwalks along the Jersey Shore are likely to be crowded during the Labor Day weekend, with lots of sunshine in the weather forecast. Pictured here are people walking on the boardwalk in Ocean City, N.J., on July 3.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly on Friday said to expect mostly sunny skies with low humidity and little or no chance of rain through Monday.

“Today will still start off a little muggy and some storms will also be possible this afternoon over Delmarva,” the weather service tweeted Friday morning. “But the weekend into early next week looks quite nice. Dry weather and comfortable temperatures/humidity are expected!”

After some patchy fog Friday morning, the skies will turn mostly sunny with a high around 85 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.

The weekend looks perfect for outdoor activities, including barbecues and visits to the beach, according to the weather service and other forecasters. They say a dome of high pressure over our region will keep things warm and dry.

Temperatures during the holiday weekend are expected to reach the upper 70s to around 80 degrees, with lows in the upper 60s.

As of now, the next chance for wet weather in the Garden State is Wednesday, when there is a 30 percent chance of showers, according to forecasters.
