TGIF - New Moon Friday

Mornin'!  It's 38° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  There's an E-NE breeze at 10-15mph.  It's a New Moon today.  Expect a mix of clouds and sun as temps just about tap 50°!  Those E-NE winds will ramp up even more at 10-20mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with showers developing overnight.  Temps will hover around the low-mid 40s with winds checking in.  East winds will wift (waft) over the island at 20-30mph.  Chance of rain is 50%.  Tomorrow... rain likely and very windy.  Temps will be in the low-50s but it'll be very wet, windy and my guess is miserable.  Sunday... not so much as it will be sunny,  less windy with mild temps (mid-upper 40s) sticking around.  Keep in mind... the New Moon today will provide much higher than normal tides.  The Tide on the back side (marsh/bay side) of the island is an hour later than the beach/ocean side.  We could possibly see tidal flooding tomorrow with the rain along with the leftover New Moon pull.

Sunny Start - Cloudy Finish

Mornin'!  It's 27° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with horizon clouds painting a beautiful sunrise as Ms Sun has begun to glow over the island.  Breezes are out of the NE at 3-6mph.  It's a lovely cold, crisp morning down the Shore.  The fragrance of the briny waters surrounding us can be inhaled the moment you step outside!  It'll be a lovely winter's day with lots of sunshine in the first half of the day.  Clouds will roll in early this afternoon as it'll be a mostly cloudy second half of the day.  Temps will climb into the low-mid 40s.  Breezes will remain light out of the E-NE at 3-5mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy as temps drop into the mid-30s with E-NE breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... partly to mostly cloudy as we may tap 50°.  The weekend remains 50-50 with rain on Saturday and sunshine on Sunday.  The New Moon is tomorrow.  Whether a "New" moon or "Full" moon... the tides will be much higher than usual and Saturday's rain could help in creating some tidal flooding.  Just an FYI!

Martin Luther King Day

Mornin'!  It's 25° in Wildwood NJ.  There's a breeze out of the N-NW at 14-18mph making a windchill of 14°.  Winter's been checked in the last few days and this morning's no exception.  Winter's getting nice and comfy here giving my bones reason to ache.  We've got a very cold, crisp, clear morning as Ms Sun's on her way over the horizon.  Expect sunny skies today with temps in the mid-30s.  Breezes out of the N-NW are staying checked in at 10-20mph making for a low-20 windchill today.  Tonight... clear and cold with temps in the upper-20s and winds out of the North at 10-15mph making for a windchill in the teens.  Tomorrow... more of the same but not quite as breezy.  It will still feel icy.
