Flag Day

Mornin'!  Happy Flag Day!  My street is quiet and empty again.  The weekenders, unfamiliar cars, dog walkers, bicyclists, etc are all gone. It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  We're currently cloud covered with breezes out of the South at 6-9mph.  Humidity's 89% with a Dew Point of 64°.   Ms Sun's up there and trying intently to shine through the thick clouds, but has her work cut out for her.  The clouds will definitely move over every now and then, but it'll be a mostly cloudy day.  There's a 40% chance of showers today.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 70s with Southerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with showers and/or thunderstorms likely... 80% chance.  There is a potential for "severe" thunderstorms as well. Temps will drop to where they are now... mid-60s and Southerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... starting out cloudy and possibly wet (40% chance of rain) with scattered showers and/or thunderstorms again as Ms Sun will be checking in later in the day.  Wednesday's still looking like "the keeper" as it'll be another lovely one for the books.

Lovely Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's shining brightly this morning as there's not a cloud in the sky!  Breezes are light out of the E-SE at 2-3mph and it's just perfect down the Shore.  The island birds can vouch for me as they're all chirping and squawking and laughing throughout the neighborhood.  We're going to have some clouds drift in as it'll be partly to mostly sunny day.  Temps will be in the low-mid 70s with SE breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... more clouds filter in as it'll be a partly cloudy evening with heavy cloud cover coming in overnight.  There's a 30% chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm overnight as well.  Temps will drop to where they are now... low-mid 60s with S-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow (Flag Day)... possibly waking to showers (60% chance) as scattered thunderstorms will develop later in the day.  Temps will be in the low-70s with South breezes at 10-15mph.  Tuesday doesn't seem any better. The next lovely day will be Wednesday.  And, it's one week until Summer!

Gray Start, Sunny Finish

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under some dreary conditions at the moment.  No sunrise this morning as the sky is gray and the air full of humidity (96%) and we're still a bit misty.  Everything is saturated from yesterday's and the overnight rainfall.  One good thing... no need to pull the hose out and water today!  Breezes are currently out of the NE at 5-10mph.  We could still get a shower as there's a 30% chance of morning scattered showers.  Later today, Ms Sun should be breaking through the clouds making it a partly sunny afternoon.  Temps will be tapping 70° with E-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mainly clear, low of 62° and Easterly breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mainly sunny with a few passing clouds, high around 70° and SE breezes at 5-10mph.  Monday... mostly cloudy as it's looking like more scattered rain showers could be heading our way (30-40% chance) throughout the day with temps in the  mid-70s.

TGIF

Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up but obscured by dawn's thick cloud cover. The sky is gray and ominous this morning.  Breezes are out of the East at 10-15mph.  I just opened all the downstairs windows to allow the cool sea breeze into the house and it's not only cool, but damp with a twist of that lovely brine. Humidity's 96% with a Dew point of 65°.   It's looking like we're about to have a "wet one" today as there's an 80-90% chance of rain.  We could get a ½" or more.  Temps will only raise a couple degrees as it'll barely tap the 70° mark.  Winds will be out of the East at 10-20mph.  Tonight... 70% chance of a steady rain as temps drop to where they are now (mid-60s) with E-NE winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy start, then partly sunny with a high of 71°.  Those E-NE winds are staying checked in at 10-15mph.  Sunday... a mix of clouds and sun.  There's a slight chance of an afternoon shower as temps get into the low-mid 70s with Easterly breezes at 5-10mph.  I'm thinking a windbreaker and/or an umbrella should be somewhat close at hand today if out and about.  Happy Friday!

Hazy Warm Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 88% with a Dew Point of 71°.  Breezes are out of the W-NW at 2-4mph.  And, it's partly sunny / partly cloudy.  It's another heavy, humid start to the day.  Ms Sun's trying to break through and the moment I typed those words, she came shining through my front windows with a vengeance. It'll probably be like that all day... Ms Sun peeking in through the haze as the temperature rises.  Oh, forget about that partial solar eclipse this morning.  I woke, looked out the window and saw the clouds and snuggled right back into that cozy bed of mine.  I still have the air-conditioning on but by tonight, that "off" switch could be on the "things to do" list.  It seems like a no-brainer to me to shut the A/C off and open the house if the temps are in the 60s.  
Expect a hazy, partly sunny day with temps tapping the 80s.  A chance of showers and thunderstorms are possible after 11AM (30% chance).  W-NW breezes will turn to North breezes then turn again to the NE breezes at 10-15mph by the afternoon.  Tonight... 30% chance of rain with temps dropping into the low-mid 60s!  NE breezes will ramp up at 10-20mph.  It looks like the possibility of rain is even higher tomorrow (60% chance) with a high of 71°.  The forecasts are saying rain overnight Friday into early Saturday morning.  The weekend is still looking like Saturday is partly sunny (70°) and Sunday is also partly sunny (75°) but with rain late in the day.  It's still feels good to be home.

Feeling Summer!

Mornin'!  I made it back to the island!  Yesterday's trek through Delaware wasn't easy as there was a huge traffic jam (I95) which I was part of and added 5 extra hours to the last leg of our journey.  What a challenge. It's nice to be sitting here this morning blogging about the weather.  As for today's... it's really feeling like summer with only 11 days to go until the solstice. The air conditioner went on the moment I walked into my house yesterday.  I'm thinking Wildwood matched Georgia's hot southern weather while I was gone and the air conditioner is keeping the heat and humidity at bay ( no pun intended).
It's currently 75° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under some light cloud cover as Ms Sun is shining through as breezes are light out of the W-SW at 5-7mph.  It's feeling warm and muggy with humidity at 90% and a 72° dew point.  I'm not sure if there's more briny/fishy aroma in this morning's humid air or I've just been absent from the fragrant essence for almost a week making it very predominant.  It's intense out there but nice.  It'll be a generally cloudy/hazy day today with a 25% chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm.  Temps will be in the low-80s with SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... considerable cloudiness.  Expect occasional rain showers (40% chance) after midnight with temps barely tapping 70° and West winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... 40% chance of rain with a high of 75°.  Winds will be ramping up out of the NE at 10-20mph.  At this time, the weekend's looking somewhat cloudy with temps in the low-70s.  The New Moon is tomorrow so those tides are already reacting by being much higher and lower than usual.  It's good to be home.

FOOTNOTE: After watching the evening news, I discovered that tomorrow at Sunrise (5:32AM) there will be a partial solar eclipse (70% covered).  According to the meterologist, if the sky is clear during sunrise, you'll be able to see the sun's eclipse along the horizon.  Grab those special eclipse sunglasses if you have them and hit the beach for tomorrow's sunrise!

On The Road Again

Mornin'  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the South at 4-6mph.  It's cloudy and will remain mostly cloudy today with peeks of sun and a high of 67°.  Breezes will be out of the S-SE at 8-11mph.  Rain is headed this way and will check in tonight late (80% chance).  Rain is staying checked in until Saturday.  Tonight's temps will drop to where they are now with S-SE winds at 10-20mph..  The weekend looks partly sunny with temps in the low-70s.  It's that time again... hitting the road that is.  After clicking the "publish" button, I'm off to Georgia again.  After having part of our family (Son, Daughter, Son-In-Law and grandbabies) visit this past holiday weekend (the first time in 1½ years we were together), hubby and I are once again hitting the road to visit our oldest Daughter and her hubby for a nice long southern weekend.  You know what that means... my weather blog will be on hiatus for a little while.  I should be back in the chair next Wednesday.  Until then, if you need our Coastal weather simply click on "Wunderground Weather" on the bottom right side of my blog page under "personal favs" and then type in Wildwood NJ or 08260 and you'll get the most accurate weather on the internet for our Coast.  Everything else is there as well... tides, moon charts, ocean info etc.  Help yourself!   See you on the other side!
