    High pressure with enough of an influence on the northeast will make for a mainly dry Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds.

    An upper-level disturbance cruising across northern portions of the region will spark off storms, but they will be few and far between. Some may reach the beaches.

    Given the trajectory of the disturbance on Saturday, coastal Maine stands the best chance of a storm while the Jersey Shore stays dry.

    Sunday is the pick of the weekend because the forecast is dry for all! High pressure moves closer to the region from the southwest and exerts its influence in the form of sunshine!

    Both weekend days feature low levels of humidity. Overall, it will be an enjoyable beach weekend from Wildwood, New Jersey on north to Old Orchard Beach, Maine.
