50-50 Monday

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under partly clear / partly cloudy conditions.  It seems (according to my webcams) that the heaviest cloud cover is on the west side (marsh side) of the island and along the ocean... much clearer skies with Ms Sun giving all she has to shine through leftover clouds!  Breezes are light out of the E-NE at 7-9mph.  It was raw, wet, cold, and windy yesterday and last night but today's a horse of a different color.  It's bright and almost sunny as I type.   It'll be partly sunny / partly cloudy today with a 20% chance of a shower or two this morning into this afternoon.  Temps will be in the upper 60s with E-NE breezes at 8-11mph.  Tonight... partly clear with temps in the upper 50s and N-NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... more sunshine than today with a high of 64° and those N-NW breezes still posted in the forecast.  Wednesday night the rains return right through to Saturday morning.

Soggy Gray Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under rain clouds at the moment.  It's raining lightly with winds driving the light rain sideways a bit (N-NE at 15-20mph).  It's still dark as sunrise isn't for about another hour.  What a stark contrast from yesterday morning.  If this type of morning doesn't prompt you to pull the covers up and continue being cozy in your bed, nothing will.  We're going to have a gray, wet, windy Sunday.  Expect gray skies with periods of rain (80% chance) today.  High of 58° with those NE winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Rainfall nearly a ½".  Tonight... 70% chance of precipitation with cloudy conditions and light rain.  Low around 55° and those Nor'easterlies at 15-25mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... the day begins with damp, chilly conditions (light rain in the early AM) as clouds begin to thin out by mid-day.  There's a slight chance of Ms Sun peeking in then along with temps in the mid-60s and the winds finally simmering down.

Saturday Mix Of Sun And Clouds

Mornin'!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear as Ms Sun just crossed over the horizon making for a beautiful, cloud-free sunrise this morning.  Breezes are light out of the SW at 4-6mph.  It's a perfect, 5-star autumn morning down the Shore.  I still have the majority of windows open allowing the salt air to seep into the house along with noisy, happy birds chirping everywhere outside.  Add to that the aroma of fresh brewed coffee along with a small batch of raisin scones baking and I'd say it couldn't get much better.  Lots to be thankful for this start to the day and weekend.   Expect sunshine with clouds filtering in today as temps just about tap 70°.  Winds will be out of the W-SW initially switching to W-NW later into the evening at 5-10mph. Tonight... mostly cloudy conditions, 20% chance of showers and much cooler temps just tapping 50°.  Tomorrow... chilly, damp and feeling raw with 60% chance of rain, high of 58° and NE winds at 10-20mph.  Enjoy today's weather!

Another Lovely Day But With More Clouds In The Sky

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  What a beautiful morning out there!  It's clear but foggy at the beach (according to the webcams).  No breezes to report as it's still and quiet.  We'll have areas of patchy fog in the morning with a partly sunny / partly cloudy day.  Temps will be around 70° with very light winds out of the E-SE at 2-4mph.  Tonight... 20% chance of precipitation with mostly cloudy skies and temps around 59°.  Breezes will barely be there.  Tomorrow... considerable cloudiness and a high of 66° with East winds at 5-10mph.  The weekend still looks partly cloudy with a chance of showers both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Foggy Start / Partly Cloudy Finish

Mornin'!  I'm home! After traveling in the car for 1,550 miles and spending 4 days with our daughter and her hubby in Georgia, we've made it back safe and sound.  We made every effort and took all the necessary precautions during this time of the pandemic to maintain the safety of our good health and those of others but only time will tell after 14 days home and quarantined to see if we didn't contract this contagious, deadly disease. Apprehensive times for sure. I must note that to my very happy surprise, everywhere I was (rest stops, take-outs, drive-throughs, gas stations, ferry, motels, stores, etc.) everyone and I mean everyone was wearing a mask and keeping a social distance unlike the visitors to Wildwood this Spring, Summer and Fall.  Traveling through Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia was quite amazing to see everyone taking care to wear a mask and keep a safe distance. This southern part of our Country was addressing this Virus like I had yet to witness here in Wildwood the last 6 months and what a relief that was. As for weather, it seems that the weather down South hasn't been far off from our own South Jersey coastal weather (I have been keeping an eye on Wildwood while away) and our weathers have been almost perfectly matched. Even the fog was down South!
It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  We're currently socked in heavy fog.  Breezes are out of the S-SE at 2-3mph and can barely be felt.  It's drippy and wet outside as this heavy cloud that has encased us moved in late last night and has kept us nicely watered.  It'll be foggy and gray most of the morning as the clouds hang around into later this morning / early afternoon.  By then, we'll see peeks of sunshine at least until sunset.  Temps will get into the upper 60s with S-SE breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, low around 60° with S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of clouds and sun, high of 68° and winds light and variable.  It'll look like a mostly sunny stretch at least until Sunday when rain is on the weather map.

Another Beauty

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and starlit.  Breezes are out of the S-SW at 12-18mph.  It'll be another lovely autumn day down the Shore with plenty of sunshine, temps in the upper 60s (possibly low 70s) with ramped up breezes out of the S-SW at 15-25mph.  Tonight... mostly clear giving way to cloud cover and occasional rain showers overnight, 60° and S-SW winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow looks like a rainy day (100% chance) with temps around 60° and N-NW winds at 10-20mph.  The weekend's still looking like Saturday begins wet with rain showers turning into a sunny day by lunch time and Sunday looks mostly sunny and in the mid-60s.  So, a small hiatus is ahead as hubby and I are road-tripping to Georgia to pay a long weekend visit to our oldest child and her hubby in less than an hour.  I'll be taking a Wildwood weather break from tomorrow until next Wednesday.  Two days of this little getaway will be on-the-road travel including the Cape May Lewes Ferry and Chesapeake Bay Bridge.  My excitement is mixed with apprehension traveling during the epidemic.  But, every precaution will be taken that's for sure.  It's our first time venturing out since February.   If you need the weather here while I'm on break just click on "Wunderground" on my blog page (last link on the right) and type in either Wildwood NJ or 08260 for the zip and you'll have up to date and very accurate weather.  All the other stuff is there as well... ocean temp, tides, webcams etc.  Stay safe and I'll see you on the other side! Oh, by the way, due to this weekend's "king moon" (also the new moon) the high tides will be the highest they can be this year so be aware of the possibility of tidal flooding.
