Lovely Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 60° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Blog's a bit late this "sleep-in" kind of morning.  But, what a gorgeous morning to wake up to.  All the windows were opened a few inches last evening and the stiff, cool breezes (E-SE 15-25mph) are coming in every window it seems.  Smells terrific along with the fresh coffee and bacon frying thanks to hubby. This is one of the things life is about!  It'll be breezy all day into this evening with temps in the mid-upper 60s and Ms Sun shining down all day.  Tonight...the breezes (SE 15-25mph) bring in the cloud cover as temps drop down into the upper 50s/low 60s with a 50% chance of rain showers.  Tomorrow looks like a washout...90% chance of rain (possible thunderstorms too).

Blustery Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got a lot going on this morning in regards to weather.  Ms Sun's up and doing her best to break through the leftover clouds from last night's storms and we have strong onshore winds out of the E-NE at 20-30mph.  We also have loud screeching and/or laughing seagulls everywhere.  They're probably happy with relief that the storms have passed (major thunder and lightning and shearing rains last night).  It'll be much cooler today with temps in the mid-upper 60s and breezes staying checked in (NE at 20-30mph). We supposed to have considerable cloudiness as well.  Tonight...still a bit cloudy and windy (E-NE 10-20mph) and temps in the mid-upper 50s.  Tomorrow...still breezy and mostly sunny with cooler temps staying checked in.  It sure won't be nothing like this passed Thursday or Friday though...missed those couple of warm, summer beach days.  Never fret...you can always count on more of those to come!

Fantastic Friday

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun just rose and it's clear and lovely with hardly a breeze.  It'll be another beauty with temps in the low 80s and breezes out of the W-SW at 10-15mph.  Tonight...clouds roll in as there's a 50% chance of showers.  Temps drop back into the low-mid 60s with breezes out of the NE at 15-25mph.  As for the weekend...ugh...I'm just bummed that this weekend's weather isn't going to be anything like yesterday and today.  It will be much cooler and with clouds and winds...oh well.  Maybe next weekend I'll have my butt on the beach!

The Hits Keep Coming...Another lovely day!

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with a light breeze (SE 7-9mph).  The shorebirds are kicking off this lovely day with lots of happy chirping.  In May thousands of shorebirds arrive as Cape May is a migration point and considered by some to be the World Series of Birding.  More than a million shorebirds pass through our area this time of year.  I'm not into birding but do appreciate the different sights and sounds of so many variety of birds visiting my little part of this coastal area.  As for today's weather...it'll be another lovely one.  Mostly sunny (some clouds in the mix today) with temps tapping 80° and breezes out of the W-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight...breezy as more clouds roll in but mostly clear with temps back into the mid-upper 60s and breezes out of the S-SW at 20-25mph. Tomorrow...more clouds roll in with a 20-30% chance of rain showers.  The weekend's looking much cooler and breezy.

Another Beauty

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up over the horizon as breezes wift (I mean "waft") over the island from the North at 5-10mph.  It's a lovely morn with happy birds and seagulls everywhere chattering and laughing.  It'll be another pleasant day and pretty much a repeat of yesterday but warmer and a bit breezier.  Temps will get up into the low-mid 70s and even possibly tapping 80° with breezes out of the S-SW at 10-20mph and plenty of blue skies and sunshine.  Tonight...clear with temps back down into the upper 50s / low 60s with breezes still out of the S-SW at 19-22mph. Tomorrow...plenty of sunshine and still breezy with temps in the "upper" 70s (possibly tapping 80°).

Lovely Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and still (no breezes to note).  Ms Sun's about to cross the horizon and shine down on the island all day long.  Blue skies are on the weather menu all day today!  The temps may be tapping the 70° mark.  Light breezes will eventually wift (waft) over us from the N-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight...clear with S-SW breezes 5-10mph while temps slowly drop down into the mid-upper 50s.  Wednesday, Thursday, Friday look like they'll be repeating today's weather, albeit, Friday late afternoon/early evening could bring cloud cover and eventually showers.
At this time, the weekend's looking like a mix...sun, clouds, winds, cooler temps...you know the drill.
