Gray Tuesday

Mornin'! It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got some cloud cover going on with breezes off the ocean (NE at 15-17mph). Feels very nippy out there in the salt air. Rain showers are on the forecast today while winds pick up from the East at 17-21mph and temps will be barely tapping 50°.  Steady rain (100% chance) with winds becoming even stronger by late this afternoon / early evening (E-NE 20-25mph) will make for a raw "go right through you" kinda day. Tonight...rain showers, temps in the mid 40s with winds ramping up even more (NE 25-30mph).  Ms Sun may check in just for the morning tomorrow.  She's definitely checking in for the weekend as we'll need her since it'll be blustery and wintry with a high of 38°.

A Little of This and A Little of That

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  We're in the midst of rain coming down.  It's not pouring but it's raining at a decent clip and has been raining all throughout the night.  It's breezy with winds coming from the S-SW at 10-17mph.  Ms Sun may peek through sometime this morning and/or afternoon as the gray cloud cover begins to dissipate. We should expect temps to just about tap 50°.  Winds will be mostly from the South today at 14-17mph.  Tonight...more clearing with partly to mostly cloudy skies, dry with temps back down in the low-mid 40s and winds out of the North 10-15mph.  It's looking like a possibility of rain tomorrow and Wednesday.  Just saying.

Sunny Sunday (morning anyway)

Site of last night's beach bonfire - North Wildwood 1st Avenue
Mornin'!  It's 42° in sunny downtown Wildwood NJ!  It's a lovely  morning with stillness (no breezes) and lovely warm sun pouring down.  We have a mix of weather up ahead.  It'll be a mostly sunny morning as Ms Sun will eventually give way to clouds.  Temps will just about tap 50° with breezes wifting (wafting) in from the N-NW at 13-15mph.  Tonight...mostly cloudy with breezes shifting from the SW at 4-6mph and temps dropping back into the low-mid 40s with a 90% chance of rain showers beginning late tonight into the overnight as well as showers tomorrow morning and again on Tuesday. Enjoy this morning though...it's a keeper!

Blustery Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's about to make her grand entrance with clear skies ahead.  It's a bit breezy W-NW 15-20mph.  It'll be a nice sunny Saturday with temps tapping 50° and breezes staying checked in...probably gusting a bit from the W-NW at 25+mph.  Tonight...bundle up for that Christmas beach bonfire in North Wildwood...it's going to be cold with temps in the upper 30s / low 40s and breezy with winds out of the NW at 10-20mph. Tomorrow...start to the day will be sunny and brisk with winds dying down for those rains on the evening / overnight menu.

Happy Birthday to our Son today!

Mornin'!  Happy Birthday Joe.  Today's blog is for you today!  It's 43° in Wildwood.  The sky is clear and starlit.  Ms Sun's on her way (7a.m.wakeup).  It's a tiny breeze (East 3-5mph).  It'll be a clear, crisp, cold one today. Temps will barely be tapping 50° with winds out of the W-NW at 18-21mph w/gusting. Tonight...much of the same with temps heading back to the low 40s and breezes remaining out of the W-NW at 25-30mph.  Have a nice birthday as well as a nice birthday weekend...the weather's looking like it's cooperating!

Welcome December!

Congress Hall - Cape May NJ (Fire pit on the pool)
Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy December! December's starting out on a fairly sweet note! It's mostly clear with some cloud cover leftover from the overnight rain showers.  We had some pretty decent downpours throughout the night.  Ms Sun does have her work cut out for one of those lovely sunrises since there's still plenty of horizon cloud cover to contend with.  But, she's coming! There's a little bit of a breeze out of the W-NW at 10-15mph.  It'll be a mostly sunny day with temps in the upper 50s (possibly tapping the 60s) and breezes out of the W-NW at 15-25mph.  Tonight...mostly clear as temps drop back down into the mid-40s with breezes out of the W-NW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow...much of the same.  The weekend's looking sunny, breezy and chilly.

Wrapping up November...until we meet again!

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  Once again we're under cloud cover with dampness, mist and fog encasing the island.  No rain coming down at the moment but we're supposed to get rain showers today again (100% chance).  We might see some heavy downpours and even hear the sound of thunder as two of the forecasts I checked mentioned rain with thunderstorms possibly in the mix.  It'll be a rainy, misty, breezy day with winds out of the South at 15-25mph.  Temps should tap 60° again but it'll still feel windy, wet and raw and needless to say a bit on the miserable side.  Hey, I'm not complaining as those higher temps are an appreciated weather-gift.  The average temperature in Wildwood this time of year is in the upper 40s.  Imagine if they were 30° colder...we'd be feeling Ol' Man Winter chilling us big time and even forcing us to dig those snow shovels out of storage. Tonight...80% chance of rain with temps back down into the low 50s and breezes out of the SW at 20-30mph.  Again...there's that possibility of a rumble of thunder.  Tomorrow...Ms Sun's due back.  See you next year November...it's been a pleasure!
