Another Beauty Up Ahead

Mornin'!  It's 54° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly in the clear, blue sky.  Breezes are light out of the N-NE at 4-6mph.  It's beautiful outside.  The salt air is aromatic and briny.  The island birds (especially the seagulls) are all loudly showing their pleasure in this gorgeous start to the day.  My windows are opened allowing this wonderful activity inside my home.  The windows have been opened  since yesterday morning.  By the way, we had a preview of summer yesterday as the temps got up into the mid-70s as the sunshine prevailed all throughout the day.  It'll be a bit cooler today but we'll have plenty of sunshine, temps in the low-mid 60s with N-NE winds at 5-10mph shifting to 10-15mph later in the afternoon.  Tonight... clear, temps around 50° and winds out of the South at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy early with showers in the afternoon, temps around 58° and SE winds at 10-15mph.  Chance of rain is 60%.

Titanic compared to today's Cruise Ship

Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly in the cloudless sky.  Winds are light out of the SW at 5-10mph.  In the words of the Turtles... "It's a Beautiful Morning".  Things are going to change as the clouds will roll in making it a partly sunny day.  The winds will waft in making it a blustery day with S-SW winds at 10-20mph +gusting to 30mph and possibly even higher. Temps will be in the mid-60s.  Tonight... partly cloudy, still blustery with SW winds at 20-30mph, Temps in the mid-upper 50s.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, temps in the low-70s (no typo), W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... partly cloudy, upper 50s and SW winds at 4-6mph

Tonight is 112 years that the Titanic hit an iceberg (11:40PM). It sunk at 2:20AM on the 15th of April as over 1500 victims lost their lives.  There were only enough lifeboats for a third of the people on board.  Only 337 bodies were recovered (one in five) as most sunk with the Titanic.  There are no survivors of the Titanic alive today.  The ship was never actually described as "unsinkable" as once thought.

Gale's In The House

Today's Webcam Shot - North WW
Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  It's partly cloudy as Ms Sun rose almost a half an hour ago.  She's painting the cloud cover beautifully.  Winds are out of the West at 20-25mph +gusting up to 35mph.  Gale's in the house again today as there's a "Gale Warning" posted until 6pm this evening.  That means that today's strong winds will impact our waters creating hazardous seas capsizing or damage vessels as well as reduce visibility.  Mariners should alter plans to avoid these conditions.  
Expect a partly cloudy start to the day especially through this morning.  We'll gradually clear as temps rise into the low-60s.  Those west winds are staying checked in at 20-25mph +gusting up to 35mph.
Tonight... clear, temps around 49° with W-NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, temps in the upper 60s and S-SW winds at 10-15mph becoming blustery tomorrow night. Monday... sunny, temps in the upper 60s with West winds not as blustery.

Friday Mix With A Side Of Wind

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  We've had a bit of a rough night with the rain and and especially the loud and strong winds. The rainfall was minimal as we had no heavy, steady, torrential rain. We had thunder and lightning mixed in during the middle of the night which woke me.  The winds had their way with us as it shoved open our gate and pushed into our yard knocking over trashcans.  And, it even blew over one of our heavy 5' potted evergreen trees.  Thankfully, nothing else seemed out of whack. 
We're currently under thick cloud cover with gray, almost foggy-like conditions from the wind driven mist off the ocean. The winds are out of the South at 20-25mph +gusting.  It'll be windy with periods of rain (80% chance) this morning and by this afternoon... a mix of sun and clouds and still very windy.  SW winds aren't going anywhere at 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be in the mid-60s.  Tonight... partly  to mostly cloudy with winds out of the W-SW at 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be around 50°.  Tomorrow... decreasing clouds but still windy with West winds at 25-35mph +gusting and temps around 60°.  Tomorrow night... mostly clear, temps around 50° with W-NW winds at 15-25mph.  Sunday... sunny with temps around 60° and W-SW winds finally calm at 8-12mph.
