A Little Sunshine / A Little Cloudiness

Mornin'!  It's 43° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with barely a breeze out of the S-SE at 2-3mph.  It's feeling damp outside with humidity at 93%.  No rain though.  It's supposed to be a cloudy start to the day becoming sunny with on and off cloud cover throughout the day.  Temps will be in the upper 40s with light and variable breezes.  Tonight... partly clear becoming cloudy overnight.  Temps will be in the low 40s with W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy with 50% chance of rain showers.  Temps will be in the low-40s with N-NW winds at 5-10mph.  We could see snow flurries if the temps fluctuate and go into the 30s as January begins her departure.  And, a big Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles; my hometown team!  You did it!  We're going to the Super Bowl! It's very exciting!

Go Birds!

Mornin'!  It's 43° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a stunner this morning.  The briny air is thick with the sea, sand and salt fragrances.  Yes... our sand is very aromatic.  Some would call it fishy.  Same for the marsh especially at low tide.  I've heard some complain of the smell being "stinky" which I just don't get.  As my smelling sense is still working its way back to normal, I've been very aware as of late how much I've missed that aroma.  There's some cloud cover over the sunrise providing the insulation needed to hear the sounds of the surf crashing the shore from my back porch.  And, that's 6+ blocks away from the ocean.  And, for some reason the seagulls are all over the place laughing as they're flying up above.  It all comes together in such perfect harmony.  Enjoy it because it's going to get gray and possibly wet today.  For now, Ms Sun's painting the clouds surrounding her.  Breezes are out of the South at 4-8mph.  We're going to have a mix of sun and clouds this morning until the clouds eventually take over.  There's a 40% chance of showers this afternoon.  Temps will be mild though... 50°.  Winds will pick up out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight.... cloudy, temps in the low-40s with W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy skies early becoming a cloudy day with a high of 48° and very light and variable breezes.  Today in Philly, it's the Philadelphia Eagles vs the San Francisco 49ers game. The weather is much like ours as temps are the same and there's a 30% chance of rain this afternoon.  By the way... the winner of this game goes to the Super Bowl!  If you've read my profile, you know I'm a Philly girl (born and raised) and I'm from an Eagles family (both parents).  I've been to many games and practices.  I even met some of the Eagles (way back in the day... even shook Pete Retzlaff's hand) after a practice at Franklin Field in the '60s when I was a kid.  It's a very exciting time right now and today's game is "off the chart" exciting.  Go Birds!

Today's Webcam Shot - North WW

Mornin'!  It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  It's partly clear with some leftover rain clouds.  Ms Sun's on her way as the briny marsh winds blow over island out of the West at 15-20mph.  Those West winds will stick around today as we're going to have a windy day with West winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  It'll be partly sunny.  Temps won't get much higher as they'll be in the upper 40s today.  Tonight... some light cloud cover giving way to mainly clear skies overnight.  Temps will be in the mid-30s with West winds still checked in at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, high of 42° and those West winds at 10-15mph.  For this weekend...
