The Hits Keep Coming (West Winds Wafting In Today Though)

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly.  No breezes to note.  And, it'll be another lovely, pleasant day down the Shore.  We're looking at plentiful sunshine, temps in the low 80's, low humidity, breezes out of the West at 10-15 mph.  Tonight...a few passing clouds as  temps drop back into the mid-60s with breezes out of the S-SW at 10-15 mph.  Clouds roll in tomorrow with a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm.  We're A-OK today though except for those "West" winds.  For those not aware...the green head flies usually come with the West winds.  Green Heads are dumb, nasty flies that find human blood a delicacy.  I'm never without my insect repellant when outdoors and the West winds are on the weather menu (a fly squatter doesn't hurt either as they're somewhat slow moving and can be smacked when they settle down to feast on us humans).

Remnants of Cindy coming to Wildwood

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It's currently sunny and windy (S-SW 15-20mph) as remnants of tropical storm Cindy is interacting with a frontal system heading right for the Mid-Atlantic States as I type.  We could have some major storming with tidal flooding and damaging winds the first half of today.  The doppler seems to indicate that the worst of it is heading North of us.  With that said...expect some thunder boomers and rain and gusty winds this morning passing over the coast as it heads out to sea.  Winds will be somewhere in the vicinity of 25-35mph w/gusting 40+mph as temps head up to the mid-80s.  Once the storms pass through it'll be a mix of clouds and sun and still breezy West 20-30mph.  Tonight...mix of clouds and starlit skies with temps down into the upper 60s with winds out of the W-NW at 5-10mph. Tomorrow...still looking near perfect...plentiful sunshine, light breezes and temps in the low-mid 80s.

ANOTHER FOOTNOTE: It's 10a.m. and we've got blue, sunny skies, refreshing breezes, less humidity and what seems to be a very pleasant Saturday morning.  I'm thinking "farmers market".

Key Words: Cloud Cover and New Moon

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining down with breezes barely there out of the North at 2-3mph.  We're supposed to get periods of "off 'n on" rain showers mostly this morning (90% chance) as this lovely sunshine will eventually give way to clouds. The clouds will be hanging out throughout most of the day and evening as passing showers and/or thunderstorms are all around us.  Humidity's up as temps will be in the low 80s with breezes ramping up out of the W-SW at 18-24mph.  Tonight...mostly cloudy (some clearing) with a chance of a passing shower as temps drop into the low 70s and breezes wift (I mean "waft") over us from the SW at 18-25mph.  By the looks of all the forecasts, tomorrow should be windy with showers mostly in the first part of the day.  Sunday...a "keeper" and near perfect.  Oh... "New Moon" is today...remember much higher tides than usual.  Never drive through tide water!

Friday Beach Etiquette tips are back~
~Never leave trash on the beach and even better yet...pick up any you see whether it's yours or not.     Note trash and recycle containers as The Wildwoods do recycle.
~Don't forgot those cigarette butts...collect and trash them (or just don't smoke and pollute the lovely sea air). Never stick them in the sand and leave them...that'll be tomorrow's find for the little kid digging in the sand.  Plus, cigarette filters take years to decompose and could be taken to the ocean by the tides giving sea life harmful/toxic cigarette filter tidbits to swallow.
~Remember to pack headphones (believe it or not no one wants to hear your music blaring from your boombox).  Big boomboxes are not welcomed on the beach.
~Kindly give your neighbors space when selecting your beach site. Careful not to plop down in others personal beach space.  Courtesy is key.
~Teach children beach etiquette. Running nearby others and kicking or throwing sand is a no-brainer but sometimes you'd never know it.
~Playing ball, frisbee, corn hole, and kite-flying etc on the back side of the beach (dune side) not near beach goers (the beach patrol will usually stop you anyway if your in the wrong area.)
~Feeding the seagulls is a big no-no. Eat and snack smartly. Using hands to express emotion when holding your sandwich up or out is a magnet for swooping gulls.  Eat under your umbrella or hooded sand chair as the beach vultures (gulls) are eyeing beach goers constantly trying to find who's eating and looking for the right opportune moment to swoop down and pluck your lunch right out of your hand or mouth (seen it happen many times). Once they get you then the havoc begins as 40 other gulls come in for a food fight of your scattered lunch.  By the way, seagulls know "chip bags" and if they see one sticking out of your unsupervised beach bag, they will think nothing of helping themselves and remove the chips from your bag as well as share your snacks with their gull friends while you're taking a walk or a dip (seen it happen many times).
~shake towels and blankets away from others noting the wind direction.
~follow posted warnings (closed beaches, rip currents, surf board/boogie board area etc) and pay attention to lifeguards.
~(hubby suggested this one) If you must use your cell phone on the beach...courtesy would be taking the call away from all the surrounding beach goers and head to a quieter area (dune side of the beach) as again...believe it or not no one wants to hear your phone conversation on their quiet, relaxing beach day.  Happy Beaching!

It's Summertime!

Today's the first official day of Summer...the most daylight of the entire year.  Wildwood's under cloud cover with rain spitting down lightly.  Not much in the line of breezes.  The clouds will eventually give way to Ms Sun as we're supposed to have generally sunny skies today beginning by late morning / early afternoon.  Temps will be just tapping the low 80s with breezes out of the W-SW at 8-10mph.  Tonight...cloud cover with a 40% chance of rain showers as temps drop to the low 70s with breezes out of the W-SW at 10-20mph.  Now the weekend's looking 50-50 with Sunday being the sunny/warmer of the two days.  Anything can change though.

Last day of Spring

Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  It's overcast and still this last day of Spring.  The island got a terrific watering last evening.  We had some awesome thunder boomers/torrential shearing downpours beginning last evening and staying throughout the early morn.  We should see some peeks of sunshine in the cloudy mix today and there's a 20% chance of an occasional shower as temps climb up into the low 80s with breezes out of the W-SW at 10-15mph.  Tonight...more clouds than clear skies and a 40% chance of occasional rain showers with winds out of the S-SW at 10-20mph and temps in the low 70s.  Tomorrow, Thursday and Friday look like mostly sunny, warmish days on tap but not so much for the first weekend of summer.  Remember...anything can change...like the seasons...Summer's tomorrow!!!

Tonight...clouds with rain (80% chance) and winds (South 20-22mph).  Keep your eye on that doppler!

Flag Day

Mornin'!  Happy Flag Day!  It's 76° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  No breezes to note.  It'll be another warm one today (not as warm as the past 3 days) but temps should just be tapping the low 80° with a tad less humidity.  In fact the NE 10-20mph breezes which begin later this morning should keep the island feeling refreshing.  There's a mix of clouds in today's forecast with a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm today.  Apparently, the boomers will be spotty but all around us.  Tonight...mid-upper 60s with more clouds and still the chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm (I'll be typing that a lot the next few days).  Breezes out of the E-NE at 10-20mph.  The weekend's looking like a cloudy/sunny mix with those stray rain clouds surrounding our section of the world.

I was blessed this weekend enjoying my first of hopefully many beach days and it was near perfect. What a lovely way to feed your soul and have a nice reprieve before heading back to work.  It almost felt like the "jewel" of autumn on the beach. The beach was not nearly populated as summer time and the ocean water which is cool and in the mid 60s provided the cool seabreezes which was so refreshing over the hot sand and my hot skin. Even though the ocean temp is still very cold in my opinion, many folks were swimming not seeming to mind the chill. This time next month the ocean should be 10° higher.

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny!  It's still (no breezes).  It's fragrant (the aroma of the marsh is heavy in the morning air).  It's chilly (I just slipped into my husband's flannel shirt for some added warmth).  We're having a little cool, pleasant, sunny start to the day.  Unfortunately, all forecasts are pointing to clouds rolling in as temps get up into the low-mid 60s.  Enjoy this first half of a sunny, still day as increasing clouds and winds (NE 10-20mph w/gusting) will be rolling in by this afternoon. Tonight...overcast with temps dropping back into the mid-upper 50s and breezes out of the North 10-20mph.  Tomorrow begins a very nice stretch of warmer, summery weather with plenty of sunshine and mid-70 temps...we're talking right through next week!  If you picked next week for your vacation, you picked well!

Thankfully not us. Tonight...even cooler than this morning with temps in the low 50s, mostly cloudly with breezes out of the NE 5-10mph. Tomorrow...they're all saying sunshine!  And, the weekend at this point is looking sunny with temps in the mid-upper 70s!

Temps will drop into the mid-upper 50s with breezes out of the NE 9-13mph.  Sorry to say...tomorrow (maybe even Wednesday) looks like a repeat of today...more gray.  At this time, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday are keepers looking sunny and warm.

Sunny Sunday

Mornin'!  It's a beauty in Wildwood NJ.  It's 69° with blue, sunny skies and not a breeze to note (E-SE 2-3mph).  It's a perfect morning in my opinion.  What makes it even more perfect is hubby's in the kitchen frying breakfast sausages and his yummy home fries (we call them "daddy's taters").  It'll be a pleasant, Spring day with temps in the mid-upper 70s and sunshine on tap throughout the day (some clouds will drift in later today) with breezes out of the South at 15-20mph.  Tonight...more of those clouds roll in with temps down into the mid-60s and breezes out of the S-SW at 20-30mph.  Late tonight...40% chance of showers.  Tomorrow... expect a good watering...rain likely (80% chance).

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with blue skies and a light breeze (NE 3-5mph).  It's a very lovely morning.  Once again the seagulls are laughing all around the neighborhood completing the loveliness.  It'll be sunny throughout most of the day with temps in the low-mid 70s and breezes out of the W-NW at 5-10mph.  There's a 20% chance of an afternoon rain shower passing through but only one forecast is mentioning that.  Tonight...clear with temps in the low-mid 60s and breezes out of the West at 8-10mph.  We're back to a 50-50 weekend with tomorrow being the better of the two days as Sunday looks a tad more cloudy with a 40% chance of rain showers late in the day.  I forgot to mention yesterday that it was the start to hurricane season.  It runs from June 1st to November 30th.  The hype this year is that it's going to be worse than usual.  NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) predicts 11-17 named storms developing into hurricanes this year with two-four being "major".  In an average season The Atlantic ocean produces up to 12 named storms, six hurricanes with two being major hurricanes.  Preparedness is key.  That's all I have to say.

Welcome June!!!

Mornin'!  It's 64° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy to see June and I know we're all counting on her to bring us fairer, more seasonable weather than May!  We're kicking off this fresh, new month with overcast skies and calmness (no breezes to note).  The seagulls sound very happy to have some nice weather on tap. Even though we're dry this morning, everything is damp from the sea's moisture blanketing the island.  The outdoor plants couldn't be happier.  These current clouds will give way to sunhine today as temps get up into the low-mid 70s with breezes out of the W-SW at 7-11mph.  Tonight...clear as temps drop into the low-mid 60s with breezes out of the W-NW at 4-6mph.  Tomorrow and Saturday look to have the same forecast as today.  Sunday may have a bit more cloud cover but doesn't look like the washout first forecasted.

Wrapping of May with Mostly Gray

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  Once again we're overcast, misty and foggy over the island.  No breezes to note.  It'll be overcast for most of the day with peeks of sun later in the day (if we're lucky).  Temps will just about tap 70° with breezes commencing from the SE at 5-10mph.  There's a 20% chance of a passing rain shower and/or thunderstorm today.  Tonight...low 60s, breezes out of the W-SW at 5-10mph and a 40% chance of a shower and/or thunderstorm.  There were more gray, rainy days in May than there were sunny, pleasant days.  According to my calculations, there were 16 rainy days in May this year.  I guess those April showers were sneaking in.  One thing's for sure...driving on the Garden State Parkway yesterday was jaw-dropping as the trees and greenery looked like we're in the middle of the tropics.  Everything is incredibly green and overgrown.  It was quite amazing seeing that lush intensity already.  We'll have a lot of happy shrubbery tomorrow with plentiful sunshine on tap.  The weekend's now looking 50-50 with Saturday being the sunny day and Sunday...you guess it..."wet".  Until next year...see you around May!

And the Drearies Keep On Comin'!

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  There are only 3 vehicles on my street as all Memorial Weekender's hit the pike.   It's overcast, damp, chilly and still.  Breezes are out of the E-SE at 3-5mph. It'll be another gray day but we may see some peeks of sun later.  However, we may also see isolated rains showers and/or thunderstorms throughout the day as well.  Temps will be in the low 60s with E-SE breezes 15-20mph.  Tonight...more clouds with a 20% chance of more passing showers and/or a thunderstorm.  Temps will drop to where they are now with breezes out of the East at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow looks like much of the same with less clouds and slightly higher temps.  Thursday looks like the keeper.  And, at this writing...rain for the upcoming weekend.

Happy Memorial Day!

Mornin'!  It's 60° in very damp Wildwood NJ.  We began to get rain showers and then intense downpours beginning late yesterday afternoon.  It mostly rained all evening and overnight.  The island's saturated.  It's also saturated with folk.  I've never seen these many vehicles parked in my neighborhood (illegal parking everywhere you look).  Hubby and I are having a day off thanks to all the soldiers who died serving our country.  By the way...Memorial Day began as Declaration Day in 1868 when Civil War soldiers grave sites where adorned.  In 1971 it was officially made a U.S. Holiday as the last Monday in May was set aside to honor those who have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country with flags and parades and other remembrances.  Today's weather will be a mix.  We're gray and a bit misty at the moment with breezes out of the NE at 10-20mph.  It'll be mostly cloudy today with a chance of a thunderstorm (20% chance), a peek or two of sun, temps in the mid-upper 60s and breezes out of the NE at 10-15mph.  Tonight...breezy (East 10-20mph) with clouds still checked in and temps in the upper 50s.  We could wake to showers tomorrow.

Memorial Weekend Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's quiet although the island's swollen with visiting folk. Not only is there no parking anywhere, but the illegally parked vehicles just in my neighborhood is amazing.  What's mind-blowing is not one ticket on any windshield!  It's currently cloudy and still (hardly a breeze to note).  It feels cool and refreshing outside. Unlike the island's human inhabitants, the birds are up and making their presence known everywhere.  It'll be partly sunny / partly cloudy today with temps in the upper 60s and breezes out of the E-SE at 10-15mph.  Tonight...more clouds but now with a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms especially after midnight.  Temps will be in the lower 60s and breezes will be out of the East at 13-15mph.  Tomorrow's looking cloudier, warmer temps (mid 70s), and more chance of rain showers throughout the day (mostly in the afternoon).

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Mornin'!  It's 65° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Happy Memorial Day weekend!  The throngs of visitors are checked in and the island's swollen with holiday revelers.  There's not one parking spot left in my neighborhood!  It'll be a lovely day to kick off the weekend celebrations! We're having a lovely morning with the seagulls laughing, Ms Sun pouring down, light breezes out of the North at 3-5mph, and temps that are mild and heading to the low 70s today.  There's a chance of showers late tonight/overnight but for the most part, we're going to have a mostly sunny day with breezes out of the NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight...mostly cloudy with temps in the low 60s and breezes out of the S-SE at 11-13mph.  There's a 20% chance of showers on the overnight.  We should wake to clear skies tomorrow with a chance of rain showers will be in the forecast again tomorrow night.  Just an fyi...Monday's got rain in the forecast.

Sunny Friday Memorial Weekend Kickoff

Mornin'!  It's 60° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Yes...it's sunny!  It's clear and crisp with not a cloud in the sky.  The morning breezes are out of the West at 16-22mph.  It'll be a lovely day to kick off an unsettled weather holiday weekend.  Today we'll have plentiful sunshine with temps in the upper 60s (perhaps tapping the 70s) and breezes out of the West at 20-25mph.  Tonight...clear with breezes out of the W-NW at 18-25mph as temps drop back down into the upper 50s / low 60s. Here's some of that unsettled weekend weather...Cool temps much like today with Saturday now being 50-50 with a sunny start and showers developing later in the afternoon / early evening.  Sunday is now a mostly sunny first half of the day with a mix of clouds and clouds filtering in by the afternoon.  And, Monday is looking like a mix of clouds and sun with rain clouds rolling in during the evening as there's a 40% chance of rain. Since we're on the unsettled side...the forecasts for this weekend will undoubtedly change and I'm watching!  Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

More Water On Tap

Mornin'!  It's 56° in wet Wildwood NJ.  We've got us some rain coming down this morning!  It's been raining at a good clip since the overnight.  It's breezy (East 20-25mph).  And, it'll be another rainy/breezy day.  One forecast mentioned peeks of sun by early afternoon.  Hmmm....not sure about that one as we're scheduled for another wet, damp, rainy one with clouds and scattered showers with the possibility of thunderstorms (mainly during the late afternoon).  Gusty winds and even a possible hail storm can't be ruled out.  Temps will be in the upper 60s with SE winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight...upper 50s, winds switching it up from the SW at 10-20mph with 60% chance of scattered rain showers and/or thunderstorms.  Keep your eye on the tides and expect tidal flooding.  On a warmer, brighter note... Ms Sun does plan on checking back in tomorrow and staying until Sunday. Sunday and Monday = more gray, wet weather.

Partially Wet Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with breezes out of the E-NE at 10-15mph.  It's feeling raw and chilly out there this morning.  It'll be a mostly gray day with rain showers up to mid-day.  Temps will barely tap 60° with breezes off the ocean (NE at 15-20mph).  We may see peeks of Ms Sun in the early afternoon but the clouds will most likely win the gray sky / blue sky battle.  Tonight...clouds with winds out of the East at 20-25mph and temps where they are now...upper 50s.  Tomorrow looks like more of the same.  Friday and Saturday look like mostly sunny days.  Sunday and Monday...not so much.  It's a New Moon tomorrow (can barely see it in a clear, starlit sky) and if you've been noticing...the tides are incredibly more swollen than usual.  The combination of a very high astronomical tide and an on-shore flow will be pushing that extra water (at least a foot) toward our coast. Not to mention all this rain isn't helping.  Expect some tidal flooding especially this evening's high tide.

Another Gray and Wet One

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  It's overcast and gray.  Everything's damp from the overnight's fog and drizzles.  No breezes to note.  I doubt if we'll see Ms Sun today as the forecast is saying another gray day with 60% chance of showers and/or misty fog.  The rains probably won't sprinkle down until later this afternoon but it'll feel damp (sock kinda day). Temps will rise a bit into the mid 60s with breezes commencing out of the E-NE at 9-11mph.  Tonight...80% chance of rain with temps down into the upper 50s and breezes out of the NE-15-20mph.  So far...the big breakout, start-of-the-season, upcoming weekend is 50-50 with Saturday being the nicest of the days with sunshine and warmish temps and Sunday looking gray and wet and Monday having a 30% chance of rain showers.

Tonight...temps in the low 60s with more light rain in the forecast with those S-SE winds sticking around too (10-12mph).  Tomorrow...a repeat of today but with blustery winds.

Lovely Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 60° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Blog's a bit late this "sleep-in" kind of morning.  But, what a gorgeous morning to wake up to.  All the windows were opened a few inches last evening and the stiff, cool breezes (E-SE 15-25mph) are coming in every window it seems.  Smells terrific along with the fresh coffee and bacon frying thanks to hubby. This is one of the things life is about!  It'll be breezy all day into this evening with temps in the mid-upper 60s and Ms Sun shining down all day.  Tonight...the breezes (SE 15-25mph) bring in the cloud cover as temps drop down into the upper 50s/low 60s with a 50% chance of rain showers.  Tomorrow looks like a washout...90% chance of rain (possible thunderstorms too).

Blustery Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got a lot going on this morning in regards to weather.  Ms Sun's up and doing her best to break through the leftover clouds from last night's storms and we have strong onshore winds out of the E-NE at 20-30mph.  We also have loud screeching and/or laughing seagulls everywhere.  They're probably happy with relief that the storms have passed (major thunder and lightning and shearing rains last night).  It'll be much cooler today with temps in the mid-upper 60s and breezes staying checked in (NE at 20-30mph). We supposed to have considerable cloudiness as well.  Tonight...still a bit cloudy and windy (E-NE 10-20mph) and temps in the mid-upper 50s.  Tomorrow...still breezy and mostly sunny with cooler temps staying checked in.  It sure won't be nothing like this passed Thursday or Friday though...missed those couple of warm, summer beach days.  Never fret...you can always count on more of those to come!

The Hits Keep Coming...Another lovely day!

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with a light breeze (SE 7-9mph).  The shorebirds are kicking off this lovely day with lots of happy chirping.  In May thousands of shorebirds arrive as Cape May is a migration point and considered by some to be the World Series of Birding.  More than a million shorebirds pass through our area this time of year.  I'm not into birding but do appreciate the different sights and sounds of so many variety of birds visiting my little part of this coastal area.  As for today's weather...it'll be another lovely one.  Mostly sunny (some clouds in the mix today) with temps tapping 80° and breezes out of the W-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight...breezy as more clouds roll in but mostly clear with temps back into the mid-upper 60s and breezes out of the S-SW at 20-25mph. Tomorrow...more clouds roll in with a 20-30% chance of rain showers.  The weekend's looking much cooler and breezy.

Another Beauty

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up over the horizon as breezes wift (I mean "waft") over the island from the North at 5-10mph.  It's a lovely morn with happy birds and seagulls everywhere chattering and laughing.  It'll be another pleasant day and pretty much a repeat of yesterday but warmer and a bit breezier.  Temps will get up into the low-mid 70s and even possibly tapping 80° with breezes out of the S-SW at 10-20mph and plenty of blue skies and sunshine.  Tonight...clear with temps back down into the upper 50s / low 60s with breezes still out of the S-SW at 19-22mph. Tomorrow...plenty of sunshine and still breezy with temps in the "upper" 70s (possibly tapping 80°).

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and still (no breezes to note).  Ms Sun's about to cross the horizon and shine down on the island all day long.  Blue skies are on the weather menu all day today!  The temps may be tapping the 70° mark.  Light breezes will eventually wift (waft) over us from the N-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight...clear with S-SW breezes 5-10mph while temps slowly drop down into the mid-upper 50s.  Wednesday, Thursday, Friday look like they'll be repeating today's weather, albeit, Friday late afternoon/early evening could bring cloud cover and eventually showers.
At this time, the weekend's looking like a mix...sun, clouds, winds, cooler temps...you know the drill.

Happy Mother's Day!

Wildwood beach - 1967 - Grandmom and Mom
Mornin'!  Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's trying her best to rise and shine.  We've got some leftover clouds from yesterday's Nor'easter (oh that's right...it wasn't a Nor'easter).  We got a very heavy dose of watering though for which I'm very grateful.  All my plantings and flowers are looking very, very good this Sunday morning.  Today will be pleasant with abundant sunshine and temps in the mid-upper 60s.  The breezes are something to write about...none at the moment but they're coming from the W-SW first at 10-20mph, and by this evening switch from the NW at 25-35 w/40+ mph gusting.  Temps will drop into the mid-upper 50s with clear skies.  Enjoy your day Moms!

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  I've heard that we're not having a Nor'easter today but it's raining at a good clip with winds out of the E-NE at 30-35mph w/gusting.  Feels like a Nor'easter but it's just a rainy day down the shore.  We're going to have light to moderate rainfall all day up until late tonight when the rains turn to a drizzle and the drizzle turns to cloudiness.  Today's temps will be in the mid-upper 50s.  Tonight...temps back down into the low 50s as this rain system somewhat clears out of here while the winds will be the last thing to check out at N-NW 20-30mph w/gusting.  Keep the wellies handy today as you might have imagined that there will be tidal flooding today.
Tomorrow...mostly sunny and breezy with temps in the upper 60s.  Mother Nature is looking down upon our Mothers!

Full Moon Hump Day

Mornin'! It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear but cloudy along the horizon and Ms Sun just passed over the horizon and trying to shine through those clouds!  It's nice outside.  The fragrance of the sea surrounds us.  It'll be another nice one today...light breezes out of the West at 5-10mph with temps in the low-mid 60s and plenty of sunshine.  Tonight...clear, low-mid 50s and breezes out of the East at 9-13mph.  Tomorrow...things begin to change by the late afternoon / early evening as we're heading into a cloudy then wet weather system beginning tomorrow evening.  Friday and Saturday are looking very wet as Sunday seems to be holding out for some of that warmer sunshine.  All three days will be very windy.

Happy Birthday to Our Daughter (our firstborn)!


Mornin'!  Happy Birthday to my first born Regina!  This one's dedicated to you as we both share a true love for the coast and all it has to offer.  Love you!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and pushing through some of that lovely horizon cloud cover.  It's making for a lovely, colorful sunrise.  It'll be a lovely day with a mix of clouds and sun and temps in the low 60s.  Breezes are nothing to note and will eventually wift (waft) over the island from the NW at 10-15mph.  Tonight...some clouds roll in but it'll be mostly clear with temps in the low-mid 50s and breezes out of the S-SW at 8-10mph.  This weekend is still looking mostly crapola.  As Friday and Saturday have rain with winds in the forecast and Sunday...well, still remains to be seen.  Some say clearing and sunny, others say still gray and windy.  Today though...a lovely seashore day on tap here on the island. The birthday girl is celebrating along another coast in Savannah Georgia (closer to her home)!
