Happy Easter!

(not one of my shots)
Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun rose around 6:15 this morning but she's struggling to make her presence known through the morning cloud cover.  No breezes to note.  Expect a partly sunny / partly cloudy day for Easter egg hunting today.  Temps will be tapping the low 60s light breezes out of the South at 8-11mph.  Tonight... clear skies with temps in the low 50s and S-SW breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow looks like a mostly cloudy day with temps in the low 60s.  At this point, all forecasts are saying that we probably won't see rain until Friday.

First ½ Wet / Second ½ Dry

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It's been raining since last evening and at the moment coming down at a good clip.  We had our share of passing thunder-boomers during the night and we may even hear a couple leftover storms this early morning.  It's very windy with gusts of wind coming from the S-SE at 20-25mph +gusting.  No flooding that I can see in my neighborhood (yet) and I live near the harbor which will be high tide in a few hours.  I suspect we'll have street flooding with this heavy rain and yesterday's full moon.  The rain is supposed to head on out of here by mid-day but the clouds are staying mostly checked in as it'll be a cloudy day.  Not sure if we'll even see peeks of sunshine.  One forecast did mention some fog this afternoon.  Sometimes fog brings peeks of sunshine.  Remains to be seen. Temps will stay in the upper 50s with breezes out of the South at 18-22mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-50s with breezes out of the South at 14-18mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy / partly sunny with temps in the mid-50s and breezes light out of the South at 4-8mph.

Good Friday - Passover - Full Moon

Mornin'!  It's 56° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up as she crossed over the horizon about a half hour ago.  The sky is clear.  The ocean's rough and loud again this morning as the waves crashing the shore can be heard 6+ blocks away.   There are light winds at the moment (Southerly at 9-12mph) but that will change today as those Southerly winds will ramp up to 20-30mph.  The clouds will begin to drift over the island and there's a 40% chance of rain today.  There's also a possibility of scattered thunderstorms developing as well.  Temps will get into the low 60s.  Tonight... very windy (Southerly 25-35mph) with showers and the possibility of those thunderstorms on tap.  Temps will be where they are now... the upper 50s.  Tonight's forecast is winds will be out of the South at 25-35mph with 100% chance of rain.  Since it's the Full Moon today and there's a forecast of rain later... watch that tidal flooding possibility.  It's never a good idea to drive through flooded tidewater.  And, be conscientious  of where you're parking your vehicle as it could be a flood-prone area.  Get to know your areas!  Tomorrow... showers in the morning but a mostly cloudy/windy day.  Sunday... the sun returns and it'll be much less windy.

Mix of Clouds and Peeks of Sunshine

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  It's mostly clear with clouds along the horizon.  It's calm with breezes out of the North at 5-9mph.  And, it's loud outside with the sound of the surf crashing 6+ blocks away not to mention there's a group of seagulls laughing in the neighborhood also breaking the morning silence.  Oh... and the fragrance of the ocean and marsh salty brine is in the air too.  It's my kind of morning down the Shore.  Temps are going up into the low-mid 60s today.  But, expect clouds to increase as it'll be a partly cloudy/partly sunny day with winds out of the S-SE to start at 10-15mph and by late this afternoon Southerly winds at 20-25mph.  Tonight's cloudy/windy temps will be in the mid-upper 50s.  Tomorrow... (Full Moon Friday) will be cloudy with isolated thunderstorms throughout the afternoon and evening.  Saturday looks like it could be wet too...60% early in the day.  Sunday... a nice Easter Sunday with sunshine and mild temps.

Pleasant Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with light breezes out of the E-NE at 7-9mph.  Expect cloudy skies early followed by partial clearing as Ms Sun begins to shine down as temps stay in the low-mid 50s. Winds will continue to be out of the E-NE but much stiffer at 15-25mph.  Tonight... overcast with temps in the upper 40s / low 50s and East winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... almost a repeat of today but with more cloud cover and not as blustery.  Friday (full moon) still looks mostly wet while Easter Sunday looks like your typical Easter Sunday... a sunny, warm day.

Sunny And Blustery Monday Is On The Weather Menu

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under dark, gray skies after quite a show of Mother Nature just a couple hours ago.  A nice big blast of rain along with some intense thunder and lightning was happening over the island around 4:30a.m.  No rain is coming down now but we're soaking wet.  No breezes to note although there is a slight breeze out of the North at 2-4mph.  Expect a windy day though with scattered thunderstorms this morning and sunshine by this afternoon as Winds come in from the West at 25-35mph +gusting.  Chance of morning rain is 40%.  We should be in the clear with sunshine by this afternoon as temps get into the low-mid 60s.  Winds are staying checked in.  Tonight... clear, windy (W-NW at 25-35mph +gusting) as temps drop into the mid-upper 40s.  Tomorrow... sunny, less windy with temps in the low 60s.
