Monday Mix Of Sun And Clouds

Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  It's bright with some morning sunshine but partly cloudy with those off-shore milky clouds.  Ms Sun's doing what she can to shine through.  There's a light breeze out of the North at 3-5mph.  It's very nice outside.  It'll be a pleasant Monday with temps heading up to the low - mid 70s (perhaps even warmer as one forecast reported) and breezes out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.   It'll be a mostly sunny to start to the day with thicker clouds rolling in by this afternoon as there's a 35% chance of scattered showers a little later.  Tonight... a mix of clear skies and cloudy skies with temps back down into the mid-60s and SW breezes at 8-11mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same weather without the chance of scattered showers.

Sunday Mix

Mornin'!  It's 60° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and moonlit.  Breezes are almost unnoticeable out of the S-SE at 2-4mph.  Clouds will roll in this morning bringing a 40% chance of rain.  Once through, it'll be a partly cloudy day with peeks of sun and temps just about tapping 70°.  Winds will be out of the S-SE at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with clouds in the mix as temps drop down into the low 60s and breezes out of the South at 14-18mph.  It looks like tomorrow will be mostly cloudy as well with a 30-40% chance of a shower in the afternoon.  Temps will stay mild though... upper 60s / low 70s.

Full Moon Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a lovely morning with plenty of sunshine and hardly a breeze out of the North at 2-4mph. It's the first time this season that all my house windows are wide open allowing that very light, cool sea breeze to wift (waft) in.  Not to mention sounds of the neighborhood seagulls and island birds are everywhere laughing and chirping displaying their high spirits. It'll be a pleasant Saturday with no rain in the forecast as it'll be partly sunny / partly cloudy with temps rising just a bit... upper 60s / low 70s.  Breezes will switch from the East at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with temps in the mid-upper 50s and breezes out of the S-SE at 5-10mph. We just might see that awesome full moon rise if the clouds allow it.  Speaking of Full Moon... I noticed yesterday at high tide that there was flooding in the streets in the low-lying areas.  Be aware that it's salt water so try not to drive through it as it's corrosive and damaging to the underside of your vehicle.  And, remember that high tide on the ocean side is an hour before the high tide on the back bay/marsh side.   And, tomorrow's weather appears to be a repeat of today!  Monday coming in with showers off and on throughout the day.

Mornin'!  It's 57° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and sunny (Ms Sun rose an hour or so ago).  There's a light breeze out of the S-SW at 5-10mph.  It's lovely.  The fragrance of the sea and the sounds of the seagulls are making the morning stunning.  Today we'll have a mostly sunny start with increasing clouds and showers possibly developing by late afternoon / early evening (40% chance). Temps will be heading into the low-mid 70s! Winds will ramp up a bit still out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with isolated thunderstorms early as temps drop back down into the low-60s.  W-NW winds at 5-10mph will be blowing around as well as a 30% chance of a passing isolated shower.  Tomorrow... no rain or isolated showers in the forecast.  There is a mix of cloud and sun but it should be a pleasant, sunny day with temps in the mid-upper 60s.  Sunday... is now looking pretty good with sunny skies as those rains I mentioned before look to be holding out until Tuesday!  The Full Moon is this weekend and I'll be posting Moon Rise times (that is if the cloud cover decides not to interfere).

Thursday Mix

Mornin'!  I'm back!  After returning on our last leg of our trip yesterday on the Cape May - Lewes Ferry, the unpacking and settling into our cozy home began!  It feels good to be home again!  It's so nice this morning here in Wildwood.  We had a wonderful week in Athens, Georgia with our daughter and son-in-law.  We had some cooler weather as well as a little taste of summer too!  Mother's Day was fantastic as we enjoyed brunch in a 1915 southern mansion turned into a lovely restaurant (Five and Ten)  reminiscent of those Cape May mansions we have here.  There's nothing nicer than dining in that type of ambiance.  It's 57° (that's what it was in Fayetteville, NC as we began the 2nd leg of our journey home this time yesterday morning too)!  We're currently under partly covered skies with no breezes to note here in Wildwood.  It's calm and quiet with the island birds everywhere making their presence known.  I'm enjoying their morning chatter as I can also smell the briny goodness of the sea air as I type.  I have the porch window cracked open ever so slightly allowing the outside in.  I may be closing that window later this morning though as there's the possibility of rain in the morning forecast (50% chance).  Rain showers are posted for later this morning / early afternoon with temps in the mid-upper 60s.  It won't be a washout as Ms Sun's in today's mix too.  It looks like a partly sunny / partly day.  Winds will be first out of the West at 10-15mph, then shift from the W-SW and then tonight... S-SW.   Tonight... partly cloudy with temps where they are now - mid-50s with those S-SW winds at 5-10mph.    Tomorrow looks like a repeat of today with the chance (30%) of a passing shower or thunderstorm early evening.  The weekend's looking eh... 50-50.  There's a Full Moon this weekend on Saturday as it's looking like a partly sunny, mild day.  Sunday's looking cloudier with the possibility of rain showers.

In The Words Of Willie...

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  This entry is dedicated to my first born... my daughter who's birthday it is today!  A very happy birthday to you! I'm on my way!
It's cloudy with breezes out of the North at 4-6 mph.  It'll be a cloudy start to the day with peeks of sun later in the afternoon. Temps will be in the low 60s with breezes shifting from the East by the afternoon at 10-15mph.  By evening the skies will begin to clear out and become starlit as temps head back to the mid-upper 50s with Easterly breezes at 10-15mph. Tomorrow's looking like a mix of clouds and sun with the possibility of a passing shower during the day and at night.  Temps will stay mild though.  The weekend's looking 50-50 with Saturday being the cloudy day and Sunday being the rainy day.  And, in the Words of Willie Nelson... "On the road again..."  Hubby and I are heading South (Georgia) to spend a few days with our daughter and son-in-law.  In just an hour or so we'll be on the Cape May ferry heading to Delaware for the start to our road trip.  And, in our new wheels!  Just a couple of weeks ago we decided it was time to downsize and trade in each of our vehicles for one.  It's a retirement thing.  The realization that one vehicle being sufficient happened.  This new ride will certainly make the long drive to Georgia more fun.   As usual, our daughter's birthday falls around Mother's day and we intend to celebrate both while with her (I actually brought her home from the hospital on Mother's day way back when).  For all my faithful readers... it's time for another short hiatus from weather blogging.  I'll be back up and running with my daily weather report a couple days before the next Full Moon... next Thursday (the 16th) morning I'll be sitting right here God willing.  If you're interested in Wildwood's weather simply click on "Wunderground Weather" on my blog page at the bottom of my "Personal Favs" and type in 08260 (Wildwood's zip code) at the top of the Wunderground page and you'll have a near-perfect weather forecast at your fingertips. See ya'll on the other side!

Hump Day Mix

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under some partly cloud covered skies with no breezes to note.  It should make for a perfectly beautiful sunrise as Ms Sun rises and tries to break through those morning clouds. That briny, fishy aroma's outside as the island's fragrant and quiet (except for happy birds chirping and squawking from every direction).  It's a near perfect Spring morning in my opinion.  Expect some sunshine but with partly cloudy conditions this morning and then increasing clouds as the day progresses.  Showers may be here by early evening (40% chance).  Temps will climb just a bit to the lower 60s.  Breezes will commence later this morning out of the E-NE at 10-20mph.  Tonight... chance of rain showers (40%) as it'll be overcast and cloudy.  Temps back down into the low 50s with E-NE breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow looks mostly cloudy with peeks of sun and temps around where they are today.  The weekend's looking 50-50 with clouds on Saturday with rain appearing in the evening and then rain on Sunday (90% chance).
