Looks like lots of people are getting an early start to the holiday weekend.

As of 1:45 this afternoon, there's already one long line of traffic heading eastbound on Route 72 from the Garden State Parkway into Long Beach Island.  Elsewhere across South Jersey, watch for slow traffic at the Atlantic City Expressway-Garden State Parkway merge and on Routes 47/347 in Dennis Township.

Meteorologist Alan Kasper says we should have highs in the 80s all the way through Monday. Ocean water temperatures are between 65 and 70 degrees from Long Beach Island to Cape May. Enjoy the weekend!
