TGIF! Starting and Ending Perfectly

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with Ms Sun rising as I type.  It's calm with very light breezes out of the SW at 4-6mph.  It'll be a mostly clear morning as rain clouds begin to cover the island.  Expect rain showers by mid-day with temps rising to the low-50s as breezes begin to ramp up.  Winds will shift from the W-NW at 15-20mph later.  Tonight... clouds clear out as temps drop back a little to the low-40s with NW breezes at 13-18mph.  Tomorrow... we'll wake to clear skies but rain showers are in the forecast for tomorrow evening.  Sunday looks like a rainy day with clearing by the evening.

Looking Like Another Nice One

Mornin'!  It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and bright.  Not much to report in the line of breezes as they're out of the N-NW at 2-4mph.  It's a sunny, crisp, quiet morning down the Shore.  Expect a mostly to partly sunny day.  Yesterday turned out to be a lovely sunny day by the way.  My guess is we'll probably have the same weather with sunshine and temps in the low-50s.  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 40s and winds out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... looks like partly cloudy with rain showers by the afternoon.  The weekend looks like it'll start out partly sunny on Saturday with Showers in the morning on Sunday.

Clouds Early, Clearing Later

Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with Ms Sun up and doing her best to shine through.  By the looks of the forecasts I've checked, we probably won't see much of her as the clouds will probably keep her hidden (at least until this afternoon / early evening).  Currently, winds are out of the N-NW at 10-15mph.  It'll be a mostly cloudy day with temps tapping 50° and breezes out of the NW at 15-20mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with some clouds thrown in the mix as temps drop back to the low-mid 40s and breezes out of the N-NW at 12-15mph.  Tomorrow looks much sunnier with lighter breezes than today and temps nearly tapping that 50° mark again.  Friday... rain showers in the afternoon. And at this time, the weekend's looking mostly gray and "iffy".  By Saturday night, the showers check back in for an overnighter or at least late Sunday morning / early afternoon.  It's all unsettled.

Mostly Cloudy with Peeks of Sun

Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with gray skies.  Breezes are light out of the West at 3-6mph.  I thought Ms Sun was checking in today but it seems that it'll be only for peeks.  It'll be mostly cloudy with temps in the low-50s.  West winds will be wifting (wafting) over the island at 5-7mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 40s and NW breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny as brisk winds will be back. Speaking of "will be back"... rain could be checking in for Friday and Saturday.

Another Gray One

Mornin'!  It's 40° in Wildwood NJ.  It's still breezy with North winds making their presence known at 15-20mph.  Windchill is 33°.  It's gray, slightly foggy and misty.  Everything's drenched and soaking wet.  Expect some drizzles this morning as the clouds are staying checked in until tomorrow.  Temps will get up into the mid-upper 40s with periods of light rain (50% chance) and those NW winds at 12-18mph.  Tonight... cloudy with periods of rain showers as temps drop back into the mid-upper 30s. NW winds will finally become much lighter at 6-9mph.  Good news... Ms Sun returns tomorrow with temps in the 50s! Oh, and it looks like she'll be staying checked in throughout the whole week giving us that warmth and Vitamin D we need and crave.

Nasty Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ!  It's gray with Ms Sun doing a little brightening up the skies at the moment.  It's mostly cloudy and misty though.  There's a 40% chance of showers developing late this afternoon / early evening.  Temps will get up into the low 50s today.  So, let's talk "winds" as they're the star of the show this weekend.  Winds are currently out of the NE at 25-35mph + gusting giving us a wind chill of 32°.  They've been howling and pruning since yesterday morning.  Since this storm system is considered a "Nor'easter" that's passing through this weekend, those winds out of the NE will pound the coast in this holding pattern at 25-35mph with gusting over 40mph until Monday morning.   It'll be mostly cloudy and misty all throughout the day as temps tap 50°.  Wind chill will be in the low-40s.  Tonight... cloudy and still very windy with a 40% chance of rain, temps in the upper 40s (windchill-low 40s).   Be aware there is a Coastal Flood Warning posted beginning today at 8am until Monday at 5pm. We're to expect tidal flooding and major beach erosion as these winds (and later periods of rain) continue to pound our shoreline and coast.  North Wildwood will certainly take a hit as the shoreline line is already beaten down and very fragile. Note the high tides as low-lying areas and many streets and roadways may become flooded and impassable.  Don't damage the undercarriage of your vehicle and attempt to drive through floodwaters!

Blustery Saturday

Delaware Bay - Cape May
Mornin'!  It's 40° in Wildwood NJ.  Windchill is 30° with NE winds at 25-30mph +gusting.  Ms Sun's up but battling through the morning clouds.  She has her work cut out for her as the clouds are staying checked in throughout the entire weekend.  Expect partly cloudy / partly sunny conditions today with lots of blustery NE winds at 28-33mph +gusting.  Temps will be in the mid-40s with windchills low-mid 30s.  Tonight... cloudy with temps in the low-40s and windchill of low 30s due to the NE winds at 25-35mph.  Tomorrow... gray and blustery with temps in the low-50s (feeling like low-40s due to those NE winds) also showers  will be developing later in the day.
