Stormy Sunday

Mornin'!  I've always had a fascination with the ocean liner... Titantic and this date brings the story back of it's sinking in the Atlantic 106 years ago. Over 1500 souls were taken in that horrific tragedy. The ocean temp was 28°.  I try to imagine but I can't.
It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and windy (E-NE at 17-23mph) and already feels cold and raw out there. No rain yet.  Expect patchy fog and drizzle with a chance of rain showers this morning.  Steady, soaking rain is on today's weather menu (60% chance) with temps barely tapping 50°.  The winds will be out of the NE at 20-25mph.  Tonight...upper 40s / low 50s with rain (80% chance) and possibly heavy rainfall and damaging winds.  We could even see a thunderstorm. This weather system stays here throughout tomorrow, unfortunately.  The New Moon is today...remember those higher than usual tides.  And, as for homemade soup...I got some lovely peppers in (yellow, orange, green, red) for some roasted pepper soup today!
High tide:8:18a.m.
Low tide:2:13p.m.
Ocean temp:44°
