Mostly Cloudy Friday

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got another gray, damp, cool morning with everything drippy from the overnight and early morning fog and mist.  Breezes are out of the South at 12-15mph.  As I made the bed, I swear the comforter felt a bit damp from the opened windows.  And those island birds seem happy... lots of tweeting, chirping, peeping and squawking in my neighborhood.  It's the best part of waking up aside from a fresh brewed cup of coffee!
It's going to be generally mostly cloudy today with a 20% chance of a shower or thunderstorm.  Ms Sun will be shining a bit as well.   Temps will be in the upper 60s with South winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... rain and/or thunderstorms developing late (50% chance) as temps go down to where they are now... low-mid 60s and S-SW winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy and possibly rain/storm start as that rain system will check out by late morning taking most of the cloud cover with it.  We could see temps in the low-mid 70s tomorrow!  Sunday... sunny with temps just about tapping 70°.

Birthday Blog

Mornin'!  And, a very Happy Birthday to my better half today!  Hope it's terrific!  Love you!
It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's overcast with lots of cloud cover.  There are some openings in the clouds over the horizon that blocked this morning's sunrise and who knows... it could make for a beautiful display of colors if Ms Sun can break on through.  Breezes are out of the S-SE at 10-15mph.  It's feeling damp and misty outside.  It'll be mostly gray today with overcast skies and a slight chance (20%) of rain showers. Not sure if we'll even see peeks of sun throughout the day.  Temps will only get up a few more degrees (mid-upper 60s) with S-SE winds picking up a bit at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy with showers after midnight (50% chance).  Low of 62° and Southerly winds at 10-20mph.   Tomorrow... more cloudiness (60% chance of showers in the morning) with peeks of sunshine by mid-day and a high of 69°.  Winds will be stiffer too.  The weekend's looking 50-50 with Saturday looking wet and Sunday looking sunny.

Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  We've still got cloudy skies and some leftover morning fog as breezes are light out of the East at 7-9mph.  It'll be a partly sunny / partly cloudy day with a high of 64° and winds remaining out of the East at 5-10mph.  Ms Sun will begin to peek through all the cloud cover but the clouds are staying checked in too.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with 30% chance of showers developing later in the evening.  SE winds will be checked in at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... 40% chance of rain showers with winds picking up out of the S-SE at 15-25mph and temps in the mid-upper 60s.  At this time, the forecast looks like a rainy Saturday and partly sunny Sunday.

Mostly Gray Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 60° in Wildwood NJ.  Blog's a bit late due to a nice "sleep in late" morning. It's late for me as I'm more like a "before 6AM" kind of person.  It's looking the same outside as when I turned in last night... foggy and misty with light winds out of the E-NE at 6-8mph.  It's sounding like a typical Spring morning down the Shore... lots of island birds making their presence known.  It appears the fog is going to stick around this morning, then turn mostly cloudy this afternoon with a high of 65° and E-NE winds at 5-10mph.  Not one forecast mentioned any sunshine today but you never know when there's this much moisture in the air... it could try and burn through and shine down.  Especially when everything posted is saying "mostly" cloudy today.   Tonight... mostly cloudy and overcast with a 20% chance of a rain shower and temps in the mid-50s. Winds will be out of the East at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy and high near 65° with light E-NE winds.  There's a 20% chance of rain showers tomorrow.

Happy Memorial Day 2020!

Mornin'!  Happy Memorial Day!  Today's blog is in honor of all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and free. A heartfelt "Thank You" just doesn't seem enough as we remember you today.
It's cloudy, misty and very damp this morning with breezes out of the NE at 9-12mph.  It's looking like a mostly cloudy start to the day with Ms Sun peeking in by this afternoon.  Temps will be in the mid-60s with NE breezes at 10-15mph  Tonight... partly cloudy with 20% chance of a shower or two (mostly near midnight) with temps dropping to the mid-50s.  E-NE winds at 5-10mph will be checked in this evening.  Tomorrow... beginning to clear out as the morning clouds move aside for some sunshine with temps in the mid-60s again.

Sunday Sloughing

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and breezy with winds out of the NE at 17-22mph.  It's also misty and wet and you're sure to get a nice moist sloughing when stepping outside.  I just noticed on my webcams that the Wildwood's season home opener for their Farmer's Market is setting up at the Byrne Plaza as I type.

When stepping on my back porch to check the thermometer, I couldn't get back into the house fast enough.  It's perfectly miserable outside and if anything, it's an ideal morning to turn over and pull the covers up.
Expect a pretty raw, moist, breezy day.  Ms Sun may peek in around dinner time and who knows may provide a nice sunset.  Temps will rise a few degrees today as the high looks like 58° with NE winds at 15-25mph.  There's a very slight chance of rain showers.  Tonight... overcast with temps down to where they are now and NE winds at 10-20mph.  There's a 20% chance of rain showers tonight.  Tomorrow... clouds to kick off Memorial day and it'll be partly sunny / partly cloudy with temps in the low-60s and NE winds at 10-15mph.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Mornin'!  Happy Memorial Weekend 2020!  For all those who have given their lives to protect and defend our country... this weekend is the celebration of remembering your life and sacrifice as we gratefully keep you in our minds and hearts.  Thank You!
It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  Not much in the line of breezes (W-NW at 2-4mph).  We're under heavy cloud cover with misty conditions.  When I first woke, there was a little sprinkling of rain drops on the hallway skylight but I can't say that it's actually raining down.. "spitting" is more like it.  One thing's for sure... everything's wet outside and the humidity's 98%.  Expect some peeks of sun but include rain and even thunderstorms this morning followed by rain showers on and off this afternoon (90% chance).  Be aware of low-lying areas and street flooding as the high tides are higher than normal thanks to yesterday's New Moon.  Temps will tap 70° with winds out of the W-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight... showers early, turning to just clouds overnight with temps in the low-50s and NE winds at 15-25mph.  Chance of rain is 50%.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy with 20% chance of rain and a high of 57° and those NE winds at 15-25mph will still be checked in.  Memorial Day... Ms Sun begins to peek through the continued cloud cover and there's not much in rainfall for the holiday.  Seems the weather fits the mood this holiday weekend though.
