Happy Father's Day!

My Dad - Off the coast of Wildwood NJ in 1967
Mornin'!  Happy Father's Day!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up.  Breezes are stiff out the S-SW at 18-22mph.  It's brisk and cool and lovely.  The town is thick with visitors and at the moment... very quiet.  It'll be a mostly sunny first half of the day with temps in the mid-70s and breezes out of the SW at 15-25mph.  By later this afternoon, the clouds roll on in with those blustery (S-SW) winds staying checked in at 15-25mph +gusting.  There's a 50% chance of a shower late this afternoon.  Tonight... cloudy with an 80% chance of thunderstorms (especially on the overnight) as temps drop back into the upper 60s.  Winds will still be around out of the SW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... we'll probably wake to rain and/or thunderstorms as the clouds try and clear out.  It'll be a partly sunny day tomorrow.

Lovely Blustery Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and bright with hardly a breeze wifting (wafting) over the island (SW 3-5mph).  Expect a mix of clouds and sun today as gusty winds develop by this afternoon.  Temps will be in the mid-70s with S-SW winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-60s and more of those gusty winds that will diminish after midnight. Winds will still be out of the S-SW at 20-30mph then to 15-20mph.  Tomorrow... a little less cloudy with temps in the mid-upper 70s and rain coming in by the evening hours.  The island is loaded with activities this weekend.  The ALS Bike Ride is beginning as I type.  The Jeep Invasion is here.  The American Legion folk are here.  Drum and Bugle competitors are in town.  The WW Farmers Market is setting up to open this morning as it does every Saturday morning.  And, the Wildwood Seafood and Wine Festival is the weekend.  Like I said... "loaded wtih activities"!

Flag Day

This morning's Webcam Shot (what a difference a day makes)
Mornin'!  Happy Flag Day! It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny.  It's windy (Westerly winds at 23-26mph).  It's beautiful with that salty morning briskness in the air.  It almost feels like an autumn morning but summer is just one week away!  It'll be a blustery, sunny day with temps in the mid-70s.  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 20-30mph w/gusting.  Tonight... clear and moonlit (Full moon is Monday) with temps in the low-mid 60s and W-SW winds at 10-15mph.  The weekend... a Beauty with plenty of sunshine and much fewer winds than today.

Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly after just raining torrents and somewhat flooding my street.   Thankfully, we're not at High tide as it could have been much worse.  It's breezy... E-NE at 15-20mph.  Expect more AM thunderstorms with fairly stiff winds switching to the East then again to the W-SW at 15-25mph w/gusting.  Temps will get up into the low-70s.  We may see peeks of sun later this afternoon.  Tonight... partly cloudy with temps in low 60s and winds out of the W-SW at 10-20mph with 20% chance of scattered rain showers and/or thunderstorms.  Tomorrow... sunny and breezy.  The weekend's still holding out as a very nice one although Saturday's looking very windy.  By the way... it's the "Jeep" invasion weekend among lots of other events.

Riding The Weather Wave

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with a light breeze out of the NE at 3-5mph.  The sea air has filled the house with all the windows still opened from yesterday afternoon and last night's beautiful weather.  The birds are happy and chirping and squawking all over the neighborhood.  It's a perfectly lovely morning down the shore.  Expect clouds to roll in later this morning as it'll become overcast and cloudy later (sometime during the afternoon).  Temps will get up into the low 70's with winds out of the E-NE at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy with rain developing after midnight.  Temps will drop down to where they are now (low-mid 60s) along with stiff Easterly breezes at 15-25mph.  It'll rain overnight (100% chance) into tomorrow.  It looks like a mostly gray, wet day tomorrow and tomorrow night.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday are looking pretty damn good though!  At this time... nice weekend ahead for all the Fathers out there!

Gray Morning / Sunny Afternoon

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly as it has been throughout most of the night.  Everything's had a nice watering thanks to Mother Nature.  No need to unwind that hose today!  Winds are out of the NW at 15-17mph.  The rains will continue for a little while longer this morning as it'll eventually become clear probably late this morning / early afternoon.  Ms Sun will make check-in as temps will be in the mid-upper 70s.  Winds will continue out of the NW with gusting as high as 30mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with temps in the low-mid 60s and North winds at 8-10mph gusting as high as 20mph.  Tomorrow looks mostly sunny with showers coming in the evening again.  Thursday looks rainy but at this time Friday looks beautiful.  Father's Day weekend (although a bit too early to be sure) is looking beautiful as well.  The Full Moon is next Monday by the way.

Gray and Damp Monday

Mornin'!  It's 66° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and misty with E-SE breezes at 10-12mph.  Everything's damp and drippy from overnight drizzles and mist.  With all this cloud cover and fog, the roar of the ocean's waves crashing onshore is loud and clear from 6+ blocks away.  Expect fog and clouds early, then the possibility of off and on rain showers this afternoon.  Temps will get into the low-mid 70s with S-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Chance of rain is 50%.  Tonight... still lots of cloud cover with a 70% chance of showers and/or scattered thunderstorms.  Temps will drop back into the mid-upper 60s with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... starts out like today but by the afternoon... you guessed it... peeks of sunshine!  Enjoy it as we're not going to see much of Ms Sun this week as she takes a hiatus from shining.  After tomorrow afternoon, it looks like Friday will be the next totally sunny day.
