More Nice Weather For Wildwood

Mornin'! It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's shining brightly as the breezes waft (wift) over the island out of the SW at 9-11mph.  We reached 91° yesterday at mid-day but the humidity (thankfully) stayed low and there were light breezes making it not only tolerable, but a lovely preview to summer.  The humidity at the moment is 87% and feels a bit on the sticky side.  All windows are wide open with those happy, boisterous island birds sounding off.  This weekend's weather loveliness will continue as we'll be seeing partly cloudy skies today with temps in the mid-upper 70s.  Winds will be out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.  There's a 15% chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm.  Keep your eye on the sky.  Tonight... clouds begin to roll on in with 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms.  Temps will drop into the low-mid 60s with SW winds shifting to the N-NW at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly cloudy with a high of 67° and NE breezes at 10-15mph.

A Beautiful Saturday

This Morning's Web Cam Shot North Wildwood
Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's shining through some hazy milky cloud cover and winds are out of the SW at 8-10mph.  The island birds are showing their weather enjoyment as their rowdy, happy, boisterous yaps and chirps are everywhere non-stop. I enjoy it so much. They're what woke me this morning.  We're going to have record high temperatures today.  Expect a partly sunny day with temps in the mid-upper 80s and SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... some cloud cover, temps back to where they are now... mid-upper 60s (thankfully as I'm not turning the air conditioner on yet like all my neighbors have).  Tonight's winds.. S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy, a 25% chance of a passing stray shower or thunderstorm and temps in the upper 70s with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  There's a 60% chance of rain tomorrow night.  Monday... mostly cloudy with a high of 68°.

Good Weather In Wildwood

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's giving it all she's got to shine this morning but there's some cloud cover at the moment.  Breezes are light out of the S-SE at 4-8mph.  It's supposed to become sunny this morning but clouds will increase this afternoon.  We could also see areas of patchy fog.  Temps will be tapping 70° with S-SE winds going from a gently breeze to 10-20mph.  Tonight... partly to mostly cloudy with temps down to where they are now... low-mid 60s and S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... it's looking like an unofficial kickoff to summer (1st day of summer is a month away) with partly sunny / partly cloudy skies, and temps in the low-mid 80s with SW winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday... mix of sun and clouds with a stray thunderstorm possible, temps in the low-mid 70s and S-SW winds a bit stiff at 15-25mph.  Okay, if you're in the Philly/Bucks County area or even Millville/Vineland area, this will be a hot, summer weekend coming up for your section of the map.  I've been watching and reading this coming weekend's weather forecasts and everything is pointing to temps in the mid-90s for you.  Not that intense summer humidity but a hot one just the same.  If you're having those "let's head down the Shore" thoughts spinning round in your head and decide to make the 1-2 hour trek to get here and beat the heat... prepare accordingly.  Wildwood isn't going to have that same intense hot weather as the City.  We could see the mid-80s but for now it seems only on Saturday.  It'll be on the cooler side today barely passing 70°.  Tomorrow with those 80° temps seems to be perfect.  Sunday... partly cloudy, high of 70° and breezy which will feel much cooler.  And remember, it does still get cool in the evening (pack a light jacket or sweater) as those 60° temps are perfect for sleeping.

Wet Start / Dry Finish

Mornin'!  It's 57° in Wilwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with breezes out of the South at 15-20mph.  It's a perfectly miserable morning.  If there's anyway you can roll over and stay in bed with the comforter up to your chin, now's the time.  Ms Sun does intend to show herself and begin to shine a little later this morning once these rain clouds disperse.  We've had rain showers overnight watering all my gardens that I just planted over the last couple days and for that I'm grateful.  No watering for me today!  So, it's supposed to stop raining by later this morning. Then, become partly sunny with temps in the mid-70s along with SE winds turning to West by the afternoon at 10-20mph.  Tonight... mainly clear, low of 58° and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... clear with temps around 70° and winds out of the South at 10-20mph.  The weekend still looks nice with mostly warm, sunny conditions on Saturday (may reach low-mid 80s) and Sunday... mostly sunny and temps in the mid-70s. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the tragedies that happened this week regarding sand.  Just 75 miles north of Wildwood in Toms River NJ, a teenager was killed after digging a huge hole on the beach as all the sand he dug collapsed around him and trapped him.  Same thing happened this week in a Utah state park to a teen while digging a tunnel in a sand dune which ultimately buried him alive. It just shows the vulnerability, instability and weight of sand when you think you're just simply having fun digging in the sand. Be forewarned about the seriousness and dangers of simply digging large holes in the beach sand. It's a tragic way to kick off the season, but it must be said.  Be extremely careful when it involves digging big, deep holes at the beach.  Always remember to always fill those holes back in so no one else accidentally falls into one; especially little children.

Hump Day Loveliness

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's shining and the breezes are light out of the N-NW at 4-6mph.  Windows are opened again with the sounds of the island birds taking over the sound waves!  Yesterday, we almost tapped 80° (my thermometer on the porch said 79°)!  Today... the high is supposed to be 70° with mostly sunny conditions and NW winds shifting to the SW at 10-15mph.  This afternoon, clouds will begin to roll in and by tonight... showers will be developing (70% chance) with temps around where they are now... mid-upper 50s.  Southerly winds will be ramped up a bit at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... showers in the morning (60% chance) becoming partly cloudy / partly sunny by the afternoon as temps get into the mid-70s with SW winds at 10-20mph.  At this time, we're finally looking at a nice weekend with sunshine and mild temps in the mid-70s.

Taste Of Summer

West Wildwood
Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly! We haven't had a start to the morning like this in quite awhile.  The island birds are all showing their satisfaction and happiness as the sound of their chirps, whistles and squawks along with this sweet, briny air seeps through the opened windows all over my home.  The light breezes are out of the West at 4-9mph.  It's going to be pretty today so expect a lovely taste of summer with plenty of sunshine, temps in the mid-upper 70s and West winds (on the windy side) at 10-20mph.  Tonight... partly clear, temps down into the low-mid 50s and NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... much like today but cooler (mid-upper 60s) and less windy (West at 10-15mph).

Nice Start To A Mostly Rainy Day

Mornin'!  It's 60° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under some cloud cover but we've got some blue sky in the cloudy mix and Ms Sun's up and doing her best to shine through every now and then.  Breezes are barely there out of the S-SW at 5-7mph.  It's going to be partly sunny early with clouds taking over as scattered "strong" thunderstorms developing this afternoon.  We could see damaging winds, hail and even a tornado is being a possibility in today's weather forecast.  Temps will be in the upper 60s with Southerly winds at 10-20mph.  Chance of rain today is 90%.  Tonight... rain ending early, then clearing by the overnight.  Temps will drop down into the mid-50s with West winds at 10-20mph.  Chance of rain tonight... 60%.  Tomorrow... mainly sunny day with temps in the low-mid 70s.  It'll still be breezy with West winds at 10-20mph.  I never made it for the red-moon eclipse last night as that full moon was under some foggy, misty skies last night.  Plus, I turned in fairly early.  I'm sure someone saw it though!
