Congress Hall - Cape May
Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  It's mostly cloud covered with just a few breaks for the morning sunshine.  Ms Sun has risen but not sure how much we'll see of her.  Winds are out of the South at 10-15mph.  Today will have some wet and windy weather.  Expect a stormy day (100% chance) with gusty winds at 20-30mph +gusting out of the South.  Temps will be in the upper 50s.  Tonight... more of the same.  Expect rain and wind and a potential for heavy rainfall.  Chance of rain is 100% with 1-2" of rain anticipated.  Temps will drop into the upper 30s with S-SW winds at 25-35mph.  Tomorrow... rain in the first half of the day (50% chance) giving way to sunshine in the afternoon.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 40s with W-NW winds at 25-35mph gusting occasionally over 50mph.  Late tomorrow night the winds will simmer down as the sky is clear and starlit.  Tuesday... clear skies, plentiful sunshine and temps in the mid-upper 40s.  Be aware of this storm and coastal/tidal flooding it will probably bring.  Be aware of the high tides and low-lying areas on the island.  Secure those outdoor decorations!  Be safe.

It's The Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  Dawn is unfolding as the sky has begun to brighten..  Ms Sun's due up over the horizon in about a half hour from now.  It's clear as the stars were twinkling brightly a little while ago.  It feels nice outside... you know, not one of those blast of cold air mornings; just a quiet and still morning with barely any breezes out of the S-SW at 3-5mph.  Noticeably "not" a winter morn.  We may see areas of patchy fog this morning with a mostly sunny day ahead.  Temps will be in the upper 50s with S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, then becoming cloudy overnight.  Temps will drop to where they are now... 49° with S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... rainy and windy.  It should begin by late morning. Temps will be in the upper 50s with South winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  Chance of rain is 90%.  Heavy rainfall is possible both during the day and night which could produce 1-2 inches.  Monday... a 40% chance of rain before noon.  Temps will be in the upper 40s with West winds at 20-25mph +gusting.  Monday night... this rainy system will clear out and give us starlit skies.  Temps will drop in the low-30s and it'll still be breezy.  Batten down the hatches, decorations, trashcans, outdoor furniture etc.  Know your high tide times. Remember that the ocean's high tide is an hour before the bay/marsh side has high tide.  And, there are two high tides each day.  Be aware of low-lying areas on the island that typically flood as we'll no doubt have flooded streets and intersections during this coming storm and new moon.  Don't drive through damaging flood waters.  Have a nice and safe Weekend!

Happy Friday!

Holly Beach Park - 123 E. Andrews Ave. WW 
Mornin'!  It's 35° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy Friday! We've got those milky, wispy clouds this morning but Ms Sun's trying to break on through.  Winds are barely there out of the E-NE at 2-4mph.  Everything's frosty as Ms Sun's warmth is already beginning her drippy meltdown.  Thankfully, it'll be mostly sunny today with a high near 54° and NW breezes at 4-8mph.  Breezes will shift later this afternoon out of the SE.  Tonight... mostly clear, temps in the low-mid 40s and Southerly breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the mid-upper 50s and S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Sunday... a "strap in" kind of day with wind and rain on the forecast.  Expect showers in the morning becoming windy (Southerly winds at 20-30mph +gusting) with steady rain in the afternoon with temps around 60°.  Sunday night... potential for heavy rain (1-2 inches expected), very windy (West 25-35mph +gusting).  Just an fyi... the "New Moon" is Tuesday the 12th and as this rain system is settling here just 2 days before that invisible moon, you know the drill.  That moon will treat the coast just like a full moon does.  We'll no doubt have coastal flooding with all the rain they're forecasting.  Be familiar with the low-lying / flood-prone areas on the island.  Be cognizant of the high tide times.  And, if need be, move your vehicle.  Don't drive through flood water if you can as it's extremely harmful to the undercarriage of your vehicle.  Also, it looks like it'll be extremely windy so secure those outdoor decorations as well as trash/recycle cans.  Preparedness is key.  Today... the last of the Autumn Beauties... get out and enjoy!

Almost A Repeat Of Yesterday

WW - Convention Hall 
Mornin'!  It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  It's still on the dark side with Ms Sun just below the horizon coming in fast.  The sky is clear except for a few wispy light clouds creating a pastel sky with blues and pinks. Ms Sun's getting ready for her appearance as she's rising in about a half hour.  I'm fact, the sky is already brightening along the beach.  Winds are light out of the NW at 6-9mph.  It's looking like a repeat of yesterday with a partly sunny morning and clouds filtering in becoming a cloudy afternoon.  Temps will be in the upper 40s with NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 30s and North winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the mid-40s and blustery with N-NW winds at 10-20mph.  Yesterday was a bright sunny day until around 2pm with clouds began filtering in.  It was a pleasant, lovely warm up after and raw, damp few days.  Enjoy this morning's sunshine.

Possible Peeks Of Sunshine

Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  Winds are out of the W-NW at 10-12mph. We're under cloudy skies with Ms Sun lying in wait to rise in less than an hour from  now.  I'm not sure how much we'll see of her this morning.  We're going to have a mix of clouds and sun today.  We haven't had any sunshine since Friday morning.  I could use a dose albeit small as we're going to have a mostly cloudy afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-50s with W-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy giving way to clear skies overnight.  Temps will drop into the upper 30s with NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, mostly cloudy by late afternoon and temps in the mid-40s with NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... cloudy, temps around 40° and winds light and variable.
