Mostly Gray Monday

Mornin'!  It's 37° in Wildwood NJ.  Wildwood's under cloud cover as Ms Sun just rose when I began typing but we'll probably not see her at all today.  It feels a tiny bit nippy out there this morning.  Not much in breezes (NE 3-5mph) making it feel borderline Spring-like.  It's quiet with those insulating clouds creating a sound insulator as those "way off in the distant" waves crashing can be heard if you take a minute to listen. When I first moved here being a city girl and forever hearing some sort of traffic in the distance, I always thought that I could hear highway traffic somewhere here on the island.  There is no traffic 8 months out of the year and that sound out there this morning is the ceaseless roar of the ocean waves.  I can only hear it when we've got these conditions... thick cloud cover along with no breezes.  Living on the opposite west-side of the island (bayside), I normally don't have the privilege of hearing the trance-inducing sound of the surf like the beachfront properties.  So, with all the clouds out there this morning...I'm enjoying this chilly, gray weather first thing this morning with some beachfront sounds!  It'll be a mostly gray, still day with clouds staying pretty much checked in.  We may seeks peeks of sun but expect a mostly gray day with 15% chance of precipitation.  Temps will tap the low 40s with breezes commencing first out of the NE (this morning) and switching by mid-day from the East at 6-8mph and then again tonight from the SE at 9-11mph.  Tonight...mostly cloudy with 20% chance of precipitation and temps in the upper 30s.  Tomorrow...much of same as the clouds aren't going anywhere and the chance of precipitation goes up to a 45% chance with temps closer to the 50s.  Ms Sun will find her way and somehow break through and peek in by tomorrow afternoon.
High tide:3:57p.m.
