Weekend Weather: Coastal Report
Thinking about heading to the beach? Think about bringing a sweater. And maybe an umbrella.
Headed to the beach this weekend?
Expect "a pleasant warm up" at three nearby beaches, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), but the evenings will remind you, it's not summer yet.
Temperatures in Ocean City are expected to hover around the low 80s this weekend, peaking at 83 on Saturday with clear, sunny skies, according to NWS.

Things are looking more summery at Rehoboth Beach, in Delaware, where temperatures are expected to reach 81 degrees on Friday, and go up from there to the mid-80s Saturday and Sunday, according to NWS.

If want to break a sweat this weekend, you’ll have to head down to Virginia Beach where temperatures will start off in the low 80s Friday, and climb to near 90 degrees, according to NWS, with sunny skies.
