Partly to Mostly Sunny Saturday

North Wildwood - Hereford Lighthouse Courtyard  
Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with no breezes to note.  It's quiet with only the sounds of the ocean crashing on the beach thanks to these clouds. They insulate the sounds of the island.  Living 6+ blocks away from the ocean usually means that only seldom you get to hear the surf and with thick cover and no breezes... it's the perfect setting.  It'll be partly sunny / partly cloudy today with temps climbing up a bit to the upper 50s.  W-NW winds are due in at about 10-15mph.  It'll be a nice weather day for the Wildwood's Chamber of Commerce presentation of its first Outdoor Holiday Shopping event at the Byrne Plaza in downtown Wildwood from 10:30-4:30.

Tonight... clear, moonlit skies but much colder.  Temps will be in the upper 30s / low 40s with N-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, high near 55° and W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Monday... a strong eastern storm will develop early with soaking rain, wind and thunderstorms possible.  It's a "soaker" meaning "tidal flooding" can be expected especially with the full moon Monday.  Start making a plan.

Black Friday

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  The cloudy conditions continue down the Shore.  Not much in breezes to note.  In fact the forecasts I researched said "N-NE at 0-1mph".  It's going to be mild today.  Temps will be in the low-60s.   Expect mostly cloudy skies (some peeks of sun... probably like yesterday; barely there).  Winds will be barely there too... "light and variable" as they call it.  Tonight... still very cloudy with temps in the mid-upper 40s and winds N-NW at 2-4mph.  Tomorrow... Ms Sun's back with intervals of cloudiness, a high of 56° with NW winds ramping up some at 15-20mph. Sunday looks like a repeat of tomorrow but not so much for Monday.  We're on the schedule for a intense rainy-windy day on Full Moon Monday.  The last day of November could be "get out the wellies" kind of flood-day as it gives the ol' good-bye salute.  I'll be watching and reporting.

Thanksgiving 2020

Mornin'!  Happy Thanksgiving!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with winds out of the S-SW at 15-20mph this Thanksgiving morning.  We've got showers ahead this morning (60% chance) and by mid-day, these rain clouds should be checked out of here.  It'll be a partly to mostly cloudy, windy day beginning this afternoon with temps in the low-60s and SW winds at 15-25mph.  There will be peeks of sunshine which will brighten things up a bit.  There is a 20% chance of a passing shower late this afternoon.  Tonight... a few clouds with still a 20% chance of a shower.  Temps drop to upper 40s and winds N-NW at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... partly sunny with a high of 57° and NW winds at 5-10mph.  Saturday and Sunday... sunny and temps in the low-mid 50s.  Hubby and I are celebrating our 54th Thanksgiving together (we met as kids in 1966). As we celebrate together without our family surrounding the table this year, we have very much to be thankful for... those wonderful kids of ours, their partners and our grandkids, our health, our love, our little piece of Wildwood and delicious food on our table to celebrate it all today.  Wishing all those who take time to read my daily weather blog... here's to better and less stressful days ahead!  Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Eve

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a bit breezy (S-SW 9-11) and on the hazy side with those milky clouds overhead.  Ms Sun's getting through a little though.  She's been up for awhile now... the blog's a little on the late side due to some food prep first thing this morning.  Cornbread stuffing is getting prepped today and I wanted to get that cornbread in the oven before blogging.  Nothing like the aroma of fresh coffee and cornbread baking!  Anyway... it'll be a partly to mostly cloudy day as any sunshine we do get will probably be this morning as Ms Sun will give way to a cloudy sky today.  Temps will be in the upper 50s with breezes out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight... 60% chance of rain, temps in the low 50s and Southerly winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... Turkey Day's looking wet with 80% chance of rain throughout the morning and afternoon.  But, by the evening (around 5-6pm) the rains should shift on out with some cloud cover leftover.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday looking nice with plenty of sunshine and all three days in the 50s (some upper 50s and some lower 50s).  Monday... Full Moon day as we're headed for quite a stormy day.  And, we all know that storms with full moons are very tricky.

Mostly Sunny Today

Mornin'!  It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear outside with moonlight and starlight filling the pre-dawn sky.  Breezes are out of the N-NW at 10-12mph making it feel like 36°.  It's certainly crisp out there this morning.  We're going to warm up nicely though with mostly sunny skies (some clouds in the mix) and temps around 50° with the N-NW winds at 10-15mph sticking around.  Tonight... clouds roll in and thicken as it'll be partly to mostly cloudy with SE breezes at 5-8mph and temps down into the low-40s.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy day with temps tapping 60° and breezes out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.  Thanksgiving Day is still looking wet with rain showers likely and a high of 62°.  By that second slice of pie in the evening, the clouds clear out and the stars and moon will begin shining bright in the clear, night sky.  While researching today's weather I read that this year's Winter Solstice's evening sky (December 21st) will be treating the world to something not seen since the Middle Ages in 1226.  Jupiter and Saturn will appear as if they're a double planet on this shortest day of the year. It'll happen in the Western sky just after sunset. From Earth's perspective, it'll appear as though these largest of the world's planets will be touching.  It doesn't last for long as the planets drift below the horizon fairly quickly after sunset.

Gray, Wet Start and Clear, Dry Finish

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with breezes out of the SW at 4-6mph.  It feels mild with these slightly warmer than normal temps but things are expected to change a bit.  The chance of scattered thunderstorms are headed this way.  They'll be all around us.  The winds have their sites on us too.  There's a 60% chance of rain (and storms) this morning along with winds ramping up out of the NW at 20-30mph +gusting.  By late this morning / early afternoon... it'll become partly sunny, then sunny with temps dropping into the low-50s.  Winds will stay put out of the NW at 15-25mph.  Tonight... clear, cold (temps in the low-40s) with continued winds out of the NW at 10-20mph giving us a nice windchill.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny with a high of 50° and N-NW winds at 10-15mph.  At this time, it looks like Thanksgiving will be wet down the Shore as a rainy day is in the forecast.  Seems like perfect ambiance for roasting a turkey with all the fixins and being with hubby celebrating our good fortune and gratefulness as we enjoy a private feast for two!  Thankful for Zoom!

Not A Real Sunny Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got mostly cloud cover at the moment as Ms Sun tries all she can to peek on through those front windows of my house.  It's bright and cheery but not quite sunny.  It is breezy... winds are out of the East at 10-20mph.  We're going to have a 60° day,  mostly cloudy, on the breezy side (South at 10-15mph) with peeks of sun on and off at least until late afternoon.  Then, the clouds will thicken and take over the skies.  Expect rain showers  later this evening (possibly even thunderstorms developing overnight) with temps dropping to around where they are now (low 50s).  Winds will be out of the South at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... waking in the morning to rain showers as the clouds begin to hit stage left around noon.  Winds will be ramped up though out of the W-NW at 20-30mph.  Expect mostly clear skies in the afternoon and evening.  Tuesday will be clear and sunny with temps barely tappin 50°.
