Gray, Wet And Possibly Flooded Friday

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  I just put Johnny Mathis' "Misty" on my Itunes program while typing my blog this morning.  A lot of very heavy fog and "misty" conditions out there this morning.  No rain but lots and lots of fog and mist and water dripping and melting everywhere. The snow is leaving us!  By tomorrow...I'm predicting not a piece of snow will be on the island.  It feels damp but not cold and a little breezy with breezes out of the South at 8-11mph.  The breezes will ramp up though as temps begin to tap the low 50s the breezes will be up to 20-25mph out of the South.  It'll be raining throughout the entire day into the overnight.  Some rainfall could be light showers and some could be heavy.  I don't think we'll be getting as much rainfall as those west and north of us.  Tonight...rain will turn to fog again as temps stay in the upper 40s with winds out of the South at 15-18mph.  Tomorrow...rain in the a.m. as cold winds begin to wift (I mean "waft") in bringing very cold wintry temps (low 30s) by late afternoon and mid 20s by Sunday.  Tonight...I'm considering moving the car later and packing the wellies when heading out on date night...just in case we have to walk home to flood waters from higher ground where the car's parked.  One never knows when living on an island as preparedness is key.
High tide:4:47p.m.
