Dr. Martin Luther King Day

Mornin'!  It's 29° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's just about over the horizon (another 15-20minutes) as the sky is clear and cloudless.  No breezes to note.  It's crisp and very cold out there.  It'll be a lovely day (Dr. Martin Luther King holiday for me) as the sun will be shining most of the day with hardly a breeze.  Temps will climb up into the low-mid 40s with clouds entering the scene late this afternoon / early evening.  Breezes come too out of the E-NE at 4-5mph.  Tonight...50% chance of rain showers by midnight with temps in the upper 30s and breezes switching from the S-SW at 10-12mph.  Looks like we wake to rain tomorrow and Ms Sun returns Wednesday.

Freezin' for a Reason

Mornin' to all today's Plungers!  Today's Wildwood Polar Plunge kicks off at 1p.m. on the beach at the Convention Center. Good luck with that.  It's 33° in Wildwood NJ.  You've got your work cut out for you as it'll be a crisp winter's day with temps in the upper 30s and breezes 6-10mph out of the NE.  On top of that...cloud cover and gray day with a 90% chance of rain and/or snow showers.  Tonight...this snowy/rainy mix will begin to clear out but we might get a nice coating before the sun shines tomorrow.  Tonight's temps...low 30s with breezes out of the North at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow...low 40s with more sun than clouds.

Last of the Niceties this Firday the 13th

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels amazing outside.  The sky is lightly cloud covered exposing the Full Wolf Moon through all that milkiness.  There are no breezes as it's still and quiet.  It actually feels like a Spring morning. It's all gonna change though.  First the breezes will pick up out of the N-NW at 18-26mph bringing colder temps.  We'll see a drop in temperatures as the high today will be in the upper 40s. These morning clouds will eventually give way to sunshine but it'll feel much colder than yesterday as the high was 65°!  Tonight...clear with temps in the upper 30s and breezes out of the N-NE at 9-13mph.  Okay...the weekend...I guess it'll be another 50-50 as tomorrow (Polar Plunge Day http://www.plungewildwood.org/) looks creepy with a cold wintry day and wintry mix on tap.  It'll be cold (in the 30s) with 80% chance of rain/sleet/snow.  Not much in accumulation but wet and raw tomorrow.  A mix of clouds and sun on Sunday with a high of 38°.

Full Wolf Moon Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under partly cloudy skies with breezes out of the S-SW at 15-20mph w/some gusting.  The Full Moon is somewhat shining through the milky sky.  The ocean's saltiness, mist and roar is in the air.  It's an eerie start to the day... feels like there should be a wolf howling from the dunes.  It'll be incredibly unseasonable today with temps in the low 60s.  Ms Sun will shining but with clouds trying to win. However the temperatures will no doubt steal the show.  Winds will be out of the SW at 18-20mph.  Tonight...mostly clear with temps back down into the upper 40s and winds out of the W-SW at 10-20mph.

Meltdown Is Over

Mornin'!  It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  What a transformation from yesterday!  We're back to a clean slate as all the white stuff is outta here.  It's amazing!  Yesterday...a blanket of snow on the island and this morning the streets, sidewalks, lawns, roofs etc. are back to normal as all the snow melted away beginning last evening.  It's cloudy and wet with mild temps and breezes out of the SW at 20-30mph.  The roar of the ocean is loud and clear (6+ blocks away) thanks to all the cloud cover. Seems like we're going to have a mostly cloudy one with a 40% chance of rain showers throughout the day and 70% chance this evening. I did see one forecast that said sunshine during the earlier part of the day as temps almost tap 50°.   Tonight's temps will be in the low-mid 40s with breezes out of the South at 14-18mph.  Tomorrow...a bit of sun with even warmer temps as the ol' porch thermometer could read 57°!  And, speaking of tomorrow...Full Moon!
