Wildwood's Weather Is Unsettled

Wildwood's Beach today - Jeep Invastion
Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 99% with a dewpoint of 71°.  Winds are out of the S-SW at 8-10mph.  It's raining lightly.  We've had rain heavy yesterday on and off and as well as throughout last night.  I could hear thunder a little while ago and it's just misty raining at the moment.  We're supposed to get scattered thunderstorms throughout this morning (80% chance) with a cloudy, unsettled weather day ahead.  Who knows, we could see peeks of sunshine sometime throughout the morning and afternoon?  We could see rain and/or thunderstorms throughout the day into the afternoon and evening (80% chance).  Locally heavy rainfall is possible.  Temps will be near 80° with South winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... 30% chance of rain, patchy fog late, mostly cloudy with temps around 70° and South winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... areas of fog in the morning, otherwise a partly sunny day, temps near the mid-80s and West winds shifting to South winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... mostly clear, temps in the mid-70s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Monday... full sunshine returns with temps in the low-80s and light winds.  As far as I can tell, the Farmer's Market this morning has been cancelled, Wildwood Crest Sand Sculpting is cancelled, the Jeep Invasion looks like it's happening as well as the Boardwalk craft show, and the BBQ-Blues Fest is happening this weekend in North Wildwood.  I'm not sure about the beach games and events scheduled for today... you may want to check the internet for updates.

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 97% with a dewpoint of 72°.  Breezes are out of the S-SE at 5-7mph.  It's raining at a decent clip and since it's been raining since late last night, saying we've been watered is an understatement.  We're in a rainy period that began late last night.  Expect rain today (90% chance) with possible thunderstorms this morning, variable clouds today with a chance of rain throughout the day.  Temps will be around 80° with Southerly winds at 10-20mph.  Heavy rainfall is possible today.  Tonight... 70% chance showers becoming steady rain as we get into the overnight, temps will be in the low-70s, winds out of South at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... showers on the weather menu (80% chance) with temps in the upper 70s / low 80s, S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow night... There's still a possibility of locally heavy rainfall (30% chance) with temps in the low-mid 70s with S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Sunday.. partly sunny, temps in the low-80s and SW winds at 5-10mph.  With the rain this weekend, be aware of the low-lying areas that are prone to flooding on the island.  Be aware of where you park your vehicle.  There's a lot happening here this weekend ( https://wildwoodsnj.com/events-calendar/ ) rain or shine.  If you're headed to Wildwood, pack your wellies!

Dense Fog Advisory Posted - All Webcam Shots From This Morning

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 98% with a dewpoint of 72°.  Breezes are barely there at 2-3mph out of the S-SE.  We're in the soup again.  The fog is laying heavy over the island once again.  We had fog yesterday and it got so dense that they closed the beaches.  Well, I should say, closed the ocean as the lifeguards couldn't see their hands in front of them let alone those dipping in the ocean and wouldn't allow anyone in the water.  Even with all that moisture in the air, it feels cooler with those low-lying clouds right on us.  We're going to see a lot of it today as it'll be partly sunny with those low-lying clouds in the mix, temps in the low-mid 80s and S-SE winds at 5-10 mph.  Tonight... partly to mostly cloudy with patchy fog, temps in the low-70s and South winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy with 20% chance of rain gusty winds developing in the afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-mid 80s with South winds at 20-25mph.  Tomorrow night... 40% chance of precipitation, partly to mostly cloudy, temps in the low-70s and South (gusty) winds at 15-25mph.  Thursday... 40% chance of showers and/or thunderstorms, partly to mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-80s and SW winds at 10-15mph.  Thursday night... 50% chance of rain, temps in the low-70s and South winds at 10-15mph.

Week #2

Mornin'!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 92% with a dewpoint of 73°.  Breezes (barely there) are out of the East at 3-5mph.  We're in thick fog at the moment.  I just checked the boardwalk cams and it's as foggy as it gets.  It's not keeping anyone from being out and about as the cyclists, walkers, joggers and diners are kicking off their week with some foggy Wildwood this morning.  We're in it to win it now as that "pretty thick crowd" mode is more than likely here until the kids go back to school.  It's going to turn to a partly sunny day with temps in the mid-80s and East winds becoming SE at 5-10mph.  Tonight... patchy fog, partly cloudy, temps in the low-70s with Southerly breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... could be another foggy start with a slight chance of showers (20% chance),  partly to mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-80s with South winds at 5-15mph.  Tomorrow night... 20% chance of passing rain showers, temps in the low-70s and South winds at 5-10mph.  Wednesday... 30% chance of rain showers after 8am otherwise sunny with temps near 90° and Southerly winds at 5-10mph.  Wednesday night... 30% chance of rain showers overnight into Thursday, temps in the low-70s and winds out of the South at 15-20mph
