Gray Hump Day!

Mornin'!  I'm home!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  It's dark, cloudy and a bit misty.  Not much in breezes (S-SW 3-5mph).  No rain at the moment but today's forecast looks like a damp hump day.  Expect patchy fog for the kick off  with damp, misty conditions and an 80% chance of rain showers on and off right into this evening.  We might even see thunderstorms beginning later this afternoon / early evening.  Last night...we had some major thunderstorms and soaking rain.  Tonight...80% chance of rain stays posted along with misty/patchy fog.  Temps will hover around where they are now (low-mid 60s) with breezes out of the E-SE at 5-8mph.  According to every weather report I've researched this morning...this exact same weather pattern may repeat for the entire next week.  There appears to be a peek or two of sunshine maybe tomorrow and again on Sunday but otherwise...gray and wet until next Tuesday.  I hate to be the bearer of a miserable, wet weather report.  Especially when just returning late yesterday afternoon from a sunny, summery week in Georgia.  We had not a drop of rain while traveling and vacationing with my daughter and her hubby this past week.  One thing we did have was summer heat...last weekend we had sunshine with 93° temps on Saturday and 95° on Sunday.  I was grateful for not having much in humidity with those temps but we had a real preview of a blast of summer which I enjoyed immensely knowing I was returning here to damp, much cooler 60° weather.  I'm almost ready for summer but would prefer to ease on into it (wishful thinking).  For now...enjoy that San Francisco weather we have on tap for quite a few days ahead.  It feels good to be back in that salty air and in that ol' weather mode!
