A Little Of This and A Little Of That Today

Mornin'!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 84% with a Dewpoint of 72°.  Ms Sun had to push through some morning cloud cover, but she's up and shining brightly.  Breezes are light out of the SW at 7-9mph.  It'll be a lovely, sunny morning into the afternoon as temps get into the mid-upper 80s. Scattered rain showers and/or thunderstorms  are going to be developing this afternoon somewhere around 2-4pm (40% chance).  Keep your eye on the sky!  Winds are going to pick up today as well out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight... 80% chance of rain, low of 73°, winds out of the S-SE at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... kind of gray with variable cloud cover and 60% chance of rain with those stiff Southerly winds at 10-20mph.

Full Moon Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 88% with a Dewpoint of 68°.  We're currently under cloud cover mostly at the horizon not allowing Ms Sun to show herself.  Breezes are out of the SW at 2-4mph and it's feeling very comfortable outside.  Once the sun's up and over the cloud cover, things will begin to heat up. Expect a partly sunny / partly cloudy day with a 20% chance of rain as temps rise into the low-mid 80s with S-SW breezes at 9-13mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with a few passing clouds and 10% chance of a scattered rain shower. Temps will drop back to where they are now... low-mid 70s with SW breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... generally sunny with temps in the mid-upper 80s and stiff breezes at 10-20mph out of the S-SW.

Independence Day

Mornin'!  Happy 4th of July!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 89% with a 71° Dewpoint.  It's feeling on the cooler side for sure but the humidity hits you immediately when stepping out the door.  It's cloudy and gray as Ms Sun's on the back burner at the moment.  Breezes are out of the E-NE at 7-9mph.  We may see a stray shower or thunderstorm this morning (20% chance) as these clouds drift on out probably by noon.  Once we get to mid-day, the sun will be breaking on through and beginning the heat up as temps reach the low-mid 80s as humidity drops (73%).  Breezes will be out of the E-NE at 10-15mph.  Tonight... clear to partly clear as temps drop to the low-70s with S-SE breezes at 5-10mph.  It'll be a great night to enjoy that Full Moon as the fireworks have been cancelled.  Tomorrow... clear and sunny with a few passing clouds.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 80s with S-SW breezes at 10-15mph.  There's also a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm.  It's the Full Moon (at 12:45AM officially early tomorrow) and we should have no problem enjoying this big ol' moon tonight as the clouds won't interfere.  Known as the "Buck Moon" for this time of year a buck's antlers are in full growth mode during July's moon.  It's also known at the Thunder Moon because of the thunderstorms so frequent this time of year.

Hot Fun In The Summertime

Mornin'!  It's 78° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 74% with a Dewpoint of 70°.  There's just about no breeze to note... N-NW at 3-6mph.  It's hazy, warm and humid at this early hour and I can only imagine what a scorcher this day is going to be.  Expect the heat being on with plentiful sunshine (some clouds in the mix) and a high of 90° with West (hot) winds at 5-10mph.  It'll feel like 95°.  There's a 20% chance of a stray shower and/or thunderstorm.  Tonight... a few clouds along with an almost full moon (Sunday's the Full Moon) with temps in the low-mid 70s and Northerly breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... much cooler with some cloud cover and a high of 80°, along with more refreshing E-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday will be sunnier and less breezy.  Be aware of a few things today in this heat... carry with you water, a hat, footwear, sunscreen along with your Mask. Remember that Ms Sun's her strongest between 10-2.  Oh, and those West winds are in the mix today so you might want to keep insect repellent close at hand for the biting green head flies.

Pleasant Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and beginning to shine and break through leftover fog and cloud cover.  Breezes are light out of the N-NW at 3-5mph.  It's quiet, still, fragrant with that ol' marshy, wetland aromas and all is well with the world.  Well, I wish it was.  God knows when that will be.
As for weather... it'll be a pleasant summer's day.  Expect plentiful sunshine with temps in the low-mid 80s (wouldn't be surprised if it hits the 90s as it has been when the forecasts say low-mid 80s as of late).  Winds will be out of the S-SW at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, moonlit skies with temps in the low-mid 70s and SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... mix of clouds and sun with a 20% chance of a shower and/or thunderstorm possible.  It'll be a warmer day for sure as temps will be tapping 90° tomorrow.  The weekend... Saturday and Sunday are looking a bit more comfortable in the temperature department... upper 70s / low 80s as Saturday appears to be a bit cloudier than Sunday.  It's a Full Moon this weekend (Sunday) and we're already seeing the tides swelling a bit more than usual.  Be aware of the tides especially if we have a pop-up torrential rain shower.  The island (along with all the other coastal towns) is known to have areas of tidal flooding during full-moon times.  Always be aware of the tides times and your surroundings especially those areas prone to street flooding.  And, never drive through tide waters... corrosive, salt water will saturate the undercarriage of your vehicle and that's not a good thing.  Remember to pack sunscreen, footwear and headwear today!

Welcome July!

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up.  Breezes are light out of the East at 2-4mph.  Humidity's 88% with a Dewpoint of 69°.  It feels warm and humid and lovely.  Welcome July!!!  We're into Summer now as somehow I always think of July as being in the thick of Summer (not just my birthday month).  We're actually only 10 days into summer with 84 days until Autumn!  Strap in... the heat is on as we have a couple hot months ahead.  Even the ocean's beginning to heat up... now 72° (which is lovely for a refreshing dip).
For today... expect an unsettled morning as all forecasts are pointing to a 60% chance of storms rolling through today; particularly before noon.  There are storms over Delaware heading toward their coast as I type.  I'm sure we'll feel the effects of it sometime this morning as these storm cells cross over the Delaware Bay skimming at least Cape May's coast. It all remains to be seen.  For now... sunny, clear skies in Wildwood. Today's temps will be in the low-mid 80° range with SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... low around 70° with partly cloudy skies and winds light and variable.  There is a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm tonight.  Tomorrow looks nice... mostly sunny, low 80s, light winds.  The weekend... Saturday looks cloudier and much breezier than Sunday.

Until We Meet Again June!

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  The Sun rose about a half hour ago and she's shining brightly over the island this last day of June.  There's barely a cloud or a breeze (N-NE at 2-4mph).  Humidity's 86% with a Dewpoint of 66°.  It's beautiful outside.  Expect sunny to partly sunny (some cloud cover today) skies with a stray shower and/or thunderstorm possible (20% chance).  High of 79° is in the forecast but I'm sure we'll get into the 80s.  Yesterday the forecast said mid-upper 80s and my porch thermometer registered 94° by mid-day.  Today's winds will be out of the E-NE and switch to the E-SE all at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with that 20% chance of a stray shower.  Low around 70° with SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... just about the same as today.  Well June, you were kind to us this year... near perfect weather this past month.  Who knows what 2021 June will look like?!
