After a summer of "so-so" weekends weather-wise, this holiday weekend is shaping up to be a beauty.
On Friday, several beaches on Long Island and New Jersey reopened to swimmers, but there are still some restrictions in place because of rough surf. As a result, lifeguards at some beaches have asked swimmers to stay close to the shore.

In New Jersey, crowds were already flocking to the Jersey Shore for an extended getaway.
For many businesses along the coast, this is their last chance to make some money this season. The beautiful weather is music to the ears of business owners who rely on sunshine.
