Autumn-Like Thursday


Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It hasn't been in the 50s here on the island since June 4th.  It's chilly outside this morning.  It's chilly inside this morning!  It's partly cloudy as Ms Sun's making a spectacular show while working those rays of hers through these morning clouds.  It's a bit breezy with N-NE winds at 10-14mph.  It'll be somewhat of a cloudy morning turning to a sunny afternoon.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 60s with NE breezes at 10-15mph.  Tonight... clear skies with temps in the upper 50s / low 60s and E-NE breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... more sunshine and temps in the low 70s.  The weekend's still holding on as very nice autumn weather with sunshine and seasonable temps.  And, by the way... big overload weekend here in Wildwood.  It's the Fall Irish Festival (North Wildwood), it's the Seafarers Celebration (Wildwood Crest), it's the start to Morey's Oktober Fest (Mariners Pier), its the Wildwood Harvest Fest (Fox Park) and it's the Boardwalk Classic Car Show among other things.  Click on Events Calendar under my Personal Favs to see what's up ahead!

Humpday Mix of Sun and Clouds

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got an autumn seashore chill in the house this morning.  Ms Sun's up and shining through some cloud cover making for a lovely picturesque morning along the coast.  We currently have some of those N-NE breezes at 10-12mph which intend to ramp up today.  Expect a partly cloudy, breezy day with temps in the upper 60s and breezes out of the NE at 19-22mph +gusting.  The sky should clear by later this afternoon / early evening as temps begin to drop back down into the low-60s with breezes still brisk out of the NE at 16-22mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, not as breezy but still seasonably cool (upper 60s).  The weekend's looking A-OK with plenty of sunshine and temps in the low-mid 70s.

Friday the 13th - Harvest Full Moon - Firefighters Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  We're gray and blustery with winds out of the E-NE at 20-25mph +gusting.  No rain but it sure looks like it might start any minute now.  Expect a mostly cloudy day with peeks of the sun if we're lucky.  Temps will hover around where they are now barely tapping 70°.  Breezes will remain stiff out of the E-NE at 25-30mph +gusting. It's a total bad hair day.  No rain posted on any forecast for today and one forecast mentioned peeks of sun this afternoon.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with temps dropping to the low-mid 60s with East winds at 15-20mph.  I doubt if we'll see that Harvest Moonrise tonight.  It seems like that happens a lot at full moon time.  It truly is a remarkable event if your timing is right and the weather is fully cooperating.  The weekend's looking "eh" with tomorrow being the better of the two days.  Saturday looks like partly cloudy, peeks of sunshine, the mid-70s with a chance of showers at night.  Sunday has a chance of showers during the day with temps tapping 80°.
