Gonna Be A Warm One!

Mornin'!  It's 76° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a tropical one with 92% humidity.  There's a sunny haze over the island.  No breezes to note.  It'll be a hot summer day with sun shining and temps tapping 90° (take water with you and hydrate all day). Breezes will be out of the S-SW at 7-10mph. There's a 20% chance of a stray shower and/or thunderstorm later (after 2pm).  Tonight...low-mid 70s with Westerly breezes at 5-10mph and 20% chance of overnight showers.  Tomorrow looks much like today but more of a chance of rain tomorrow evening. The weekend's looking 50-50 with Sunday being the better of the two days.
High tide:11:06a.m.
Low tide:4:44p.m.
Ocean temp:71°
UV Index:10 - Very High...2 words..."Sunblock" and "Footwear"
Rip Currents:Low risk
Weekly Beach Etiquette tips:
  ~never leave trash on the beach and even better yet...pick up any you see whether it's yours or not.
  ~don't forgot those cigarette butts...collect and trash them (or just don't smoke and pollute the lovely sea air).
  ~remember to pack those headphones (believe it or not no one wants to hear your music).
  ~kindly give your neighbors space when selecting your beach site.  Careful not to plop down too close or on top of their beach space.
  ~always remind your kids beach etiquette especially not running too close to others and avoid digging up, kicking or throwing sand near those sitting next to you.
  ~play ball, frisbee, corn hole, kite-flying etc on the back side of the beach and not near beach goers (the beach patrol will usually stop you anyway if your in the wrong area.)
  ~ no feeding the seagulls (big no-no). And, eat and snack smartly...under your hooded sand chair, or umbrella as these beach vultures will eye each and every beach goer looking for the right opportune moment to swoop down and pluck your lunch right out of your hand or mouth.  Once they get you then the havoc begins as all the other gulls attack for your scattered food.
  ~shake towels and blankets away from others noting the wind direction.
  ~follow posted warnings and pay attention to lifeguards.

One additional Beach Etiquette tip...

Do not use spray-on sunscreen upwind of others on the beach. Always move to
A location where the the wind will not blow your spray-on sunscreen into the
face of others on the beach.
