A Nor'easter Has Us In Its Sights

Mornin'!  It's 19° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear, starlit and moonlit with no breezes to note.  In fact, there's no wind chill to report at the moment.  It's just cold as hell.  It'll be fairly decent today as winter days go with mostly sun shining down and temps climbing way up into the low 30s!  Cloud cover will filter in later today.  Winds will also commence later this afternoon from the West first at 5-10mph then switch out of the East at 10-15mph becoming 20-25mph by tonight.  Tonight's temps will drop into the low-mid 20s as a Nor'Easter comes-a-knockin' and brings snow and winds beginning around midnight.  Now would be the time to expect Wind Chills to check in.  During the overnight and into tomorrow expect major winds (gusts of up to 47mph) and 2-4 inches of the white stuff.  Friday...Ms Sun returns but with even bitter colder temps and those stupid winds which have no intention of checking out creating a wind chill factor of biting miserable proportions.  At this time, the weekend's looking sunny but frigid.  If you ever wanted to come to down the shore and see the Delaware bay and all the surrounding harbors's the time to do it!  I still haven't decided what kind of homemade soup's on the menu.
High tide:8:32a.m.
