Lovely Humpday

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  It's perfectly lovely outside this morning.  We had a bit of unsettled, stormy, rainy weather last evening and it completely took that oppressive humidity away for now.  Dewpoint is 63° and Humidity's 61%.  There's a light breeze out of the North at 4-6mph making everything feel clear, clean, crisp and refreshing.  It'll be warm today with vivid blue, sunny skies, temps in the low-mid 80s and NW breezes at 8-10mph.  If heading to the beach...pack the insect repellent (always should be at the ready if there's any type of "westerly" breezes on the weather menu as the greenhead biting flies come with the westerlies).  Tonight...clear, temps down into the upper 60s / low 70s and breezes out of the S-SE at 5-8mph.  The weekend's looking "iffy" with 30-60% chance of rain showers and/or thunderstorms both days (Sunday being the lesser chance of the 2 days).

Tuesday Mix of Weather

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got us a foggy morning out there with a dewpoint of 73° and 94% humidity.  We're in the soup!  We've got some breezes coming out of the South at 10-15mph which will stick around and even ramp up a bit (20+mph) throughout the day and into tonight. It'll be another warm one with high humidity, and partly sunny / partly cloudy conditions as temps get up into the mid-upper 80s.  It'll be unsettled today as there's a 50-70% chance of rain and/or thunderstorms beginning later today (early evening) so keep a watch of the doppler.  Some storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Tonight...temps drop into the low 70s as those Southerly winds begin to shift from the North as this forecasted rain falls down.  Tomorrow...back to more settled weather as it'll be sunny and lovely.

Mostly Sunny Warm Monday

Mornin'!  It's 74° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny, warm and humid down the Shore.  Dewpoint: 72°, Humidity: 91%, Breezes: Easterly 2-3mph.  It'll be mostly sunny today (some clouds in the mix) with warm, humid, breezy conditions as temps climb into the low 80s and breezes out of the South at 10-20mph (pack a bungee cord to tether your beach umbrella today).  Tonight...clear, mid 70s, S-SW breezes at 14-17mph.  Tomorrow looks like a mostly cloudy day with 30-40% chance of rain/thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Mostly Pleasant and Warm Today

Mornin'!  It's 78° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and warm with 76% humidity and 69° dewpoint.  The breezes our out of the SW at 8-10mph.  It's a lovely Sunday morning out there.  My airconditioner's on I have to admit as inside the house is much more comfortable at the moment!  It'll be another warm one (not too warm) today with temps in the low-mid 80s, partly sunny (clouds in the mix today) and breezes out of the S-SW at 8-10mph.  Tonight...mostly cloudy with temps in the mid 70s and S-SW breezes at 12-15mph.  Tomorrow...more of the same with a bit more humidity in the mix.  It's that humidity that gets ya and makes you feel overheated more than anything.  Bottom line...nice beach day!

Looking Very Good For The Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and calm (not much in the line of breezes).  Dewpoint's 62° and humidity's 75%.  The ol' salty marsh fragrance is coming over us from the SW and it's evident immediately when stepping outside this lovely morn. It'll be a warm, sunny day down the Shore with temps tapping the 80s and breezes out of the S-SW at 6-10mph.  Tonight...mostly clear with temps in the low 70s and breezes out of the S-SW at 11-15mph.  Tomorrow...warmer (mid-80s) with some clouds in the mix with a 20% chance of showers tomorrow night into Monday.  One forecast that I research and trust to give mostly accurate reports never mentioned rain at all for Sunday or Monday.  Your guess is as good as mine but overall I'm going with this weekend being a keeper!  Oh...and btw, any forecast that has breezes with "west" in it...be aware that westerly winds of any kind can bring the biting greenhead flies so pack the insect repellent in your beach bag.

TGIFriday the 13th!


Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and at'em with light breezes out of the E-NE at 3-5mph.  It's lovely.  Humidity's up there...85% and the dewpoint is 70° but it's still a perfectly lovely morning down the Shore.  It'll be summery and beautiful and warm again today. Skies will be clear and vivid blue with some picturesque clouds as temps climb near 80°.  Breezes will be out of the East at 9-11mph.  Tonight...clear, temps down to low 70s and breezes out of the S-SE at 7-8mph.  Tomorrow...more of the same.  Sunday may begin with showers but turn into yet another lovely day!  Great weather this weekend for the North Wildwood Blues/BBQ Fest (one of my favorites).

And...it's Friday and you know what that means...
Friday Beach Tips and Beach Etiquette~
~Remember to pack water, hat, footwear, towel, sunblock, insect repellent, and shade (umbrella or sand chair with a canopy). If packing an umbrella be aware of wind speed as you may have to take extra steps to secure it such as sand (screw) grabber or bungee cord.  It's pretty amazing how not secure some umbrellas can be as the wind launches them directly toward you.
~Never leave trash on the beach and even better yet...pick up any that you see whether it's yours or not.   Note trash and recycle containers are situated everywhere.
~Don't forget those cigarette butts...collect and trash them.  Or just don't smoke and pollute the lovely sea air. Never stick them in the sand and leave them...that'll be tomorrow's find for the little kid digging in the sand.  Plus, cigarette filters take years to decompose and could be taken to the ocean by the tides giving sea life harmful/toxic cigarette filter tidbits to swallow. Smoking is banned on the Boardwalk in all the towns by the way.
~Remember to pack headphones for your music device or at least keep the volume down to a minimum (believe it or not no one wants to hear your music not to mention your beach neighbor might be quietly trying to listen to their own music).  
~Kindly give your beach neighbors space when selecting your beach campsite. Courtesy is key. Careful not to plop only inches from others' blankets/umbrellas.
~Teach children some beach etiquette. Running (basically "kicking") and dispensing sand nearby others as well as throwing sand is a no-brainer but sometimes you'd never know it.  
~Feeding the seagulls is a big no-no. Eat and snack smartly. Using hands to express emotion when holding your sandwich up or out is a magnet for swooping gulls. Dropping one potato chip thoughtlessly will create seagull havoc. Eat under your umbrella or hooded sand chair as the seagulls are much like vultures and are endlessly eyeing beachgoers eating habits.  They're relentless trying to find the right opportune moment to swoop down and pluck your lunch right out of your hand or mouth (seen it happen many times).  If successful, seagull havoc begins as 40 other gulls come in for a food fight of your scattered lunch.  By the way, seagulls know "chip bags" and if they see one sticking out of your unsupervised beach bag, they will think nothing of helping themselves and remove the bag of chips from your bag as well as share their newly acquired snacks with their gull friends while you're taking a walk or a dip (seen it happen many times).
~Playing ball, frisbee, horseshoes, corn hole, or kite-flying etc is a no-no at the beach.  I mean on the back side of the beach (dune side) or other designated areas is more appropriate for active beach games.  Stay away from those camped out that are simply trying to enjoy their quiet, relaxing beach day.  The beach patrol will probably stop you if playing in the wrong area anyway.  
~Shake towels and blankets away from others noting the wind direction.
~Observe and follow posted beach warnings (closed beaches, no alcohol, strong rip currents, surfboard/boogie board area etc) and always pay attention to lifeguards.  If in doubt...ask the lifeguard (they're terrific people).

New Moon Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  Thunder and lightning woke me this morning as one of those scattered thunderstorms is passing over while I blog.  It's raining with no winds happening at the moment.  This is going to pass as Ms Sun is waiting in the wings brightening things up as it'll be a mostly sunny day with temps in the upper 70s (maybe tapping the 80s again) with breezes off the ocean (E-NE at 8-13mph).  There is a 15% chance of a passing shower today (might want to keep that in mind). Tonight...mostly clear and lovely with temps in the low 70s and breezes out of the East at 5-8mph.  Tomorrow...much like today (once this thundery weather system clears on out).  The weekend's looking pretty good too (Sunday's the warm one). Hurricane Chris has headed away from the US coast too but the rips currents will still be felt today.  Take precautions while swimming in the ocean.  And, the "New" moon is today.  A New moon has the same effects and pulls on the tides same as a "Full" moon...note how high the tides get today and do your best "not" to drive through the salty, corrosive water.

Warm Hump

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a bit of a muggy morning with 72° dewpoint and 97% humidity out there.  We're under partial cloud cover but Ms Sun will rally and be shining down warming us big time today and very soon.  Temps will get up into the low-mid 80s but will feel like a warm one with the intense humidity and sunshine.  Breezes are nothing to note at the moment but will wift (waft) in from the E-NE, then E-SE then eventually East by this evening all at 7-9mph.  Tonight...partly cloudy with temps down to the low 70s. Tomorrow...warm with a 20% chance of showers.  I can only hope as it's been pretty dry here with no rain since the end of June.  I've been on faithful watering detail as of late.  Oh...that ol' Hurricane Chris is still off the Carolina coast and creating some major wave action which is affecting us...we're seeing "moderate" rips currents so be very conscientious when stepping into that ocean!

More of the Same Loveliness

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's feeling a little more humid (humidity's 81%). It's a beauty out there with Ms Sun pouring down and very light breezes out of the East at 2-4mph.  Oh...there's the aroma of the salty marshes too.  It all works perfectly well together.  It'll be a warm one today with plenty of sunshine and temps in the low 80s with W-SW breezes at 5-7mph.  Tonight...clear, temps in the low 70s and breezes out of the South at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow...more of the same.  This Category I hurricane "Chris" is still off the Carolina coast and is creating dangerous rip currents off our coast at least until Thursday.  The sand will be extremely hot today...remember footwear.  And the "new moon" is coming this week (Thursday)...note the high tides will begin being higher than normal.

Sunny Monday

Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and calm (breezes out of the N-NE at 3-4mph) with lots of happy seagulls laughing in my neighborhood.  The AC is still off and all the house windows are wide open.  It's a lovely, cool, autumnish kind of morning and feels nice outside as well as in the house.  It'll begin to heat up beginning today as temps tap 80° with plenty of sunshine and breezes out of the S-SE at 6-8mph.  Humidity and dewpoint are low now but will begin to rise up throughout the week.  Enjoy today as it'll be a "10".  Tonight...clear, low 70s with breezes out of the S-SW at 7-9mph.  I'd be remiss if I didn't mention hurricane Chris off our southern coast creating some rough surf for the Carolinas.  No Coastal Watches or Warnings are in effect.  As far as the Jersey coast is concerned, we're looking at very rough seas and dangerous rip currents by the middle of the week depending on how Ol' Chris moves about.  It's expected to head away from the U.S.

Sunny Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  It's feeling a bit like that first day of school on an autumn morning out there!  It's a little breezy N-NE at 5-8mph.  Humidity's low and it's cool and refreshing.  It'll be a pleasant sunny day albeit breezy with temps in the mid-70s and breezes out of the E-NE at 15-20mph (pack the bungee cord to anchor those umbrellas).  Tonight...clear, with temps just tapping 70° and breezes out of the East at 8-10mph.  Tomorrow...sunny and warm as the winds check out with a near perfect beach day on tap!

Much Cooler and Windier Down The Shore

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  The heat and humidity took a "five" and is outta here for now.  It's cool and very breezy (E-NE 20-25mph) with Ms Sun shining down through some bits of cloud cover.  We've had a major shift in the summer weather for the next few days with low humidity and dewpoint.  It's currently 67% humidity with a 57° dewpoint!  Expect a mostly sunny day with some clouds in the mix and temps in the mid-70s and stiff breezes remaining out of the E-NE at 17-23mph.  No rain in sight.  Tonight...mostly clear skies with temps in the upper 60s and E-NE breezes still checked in at 10-13mph.  Looks like it'll still be breezy for tomorrow with plenty of sunshine and temps in the upper 70s.

Another Warm One

Mornin'!  It's 77 humid degrees in Wildwood NJ. There's 97% humidity out there. That means the air is saturated with vapor.  Everything's damp and a bit drippy outside.  I left 2 beach towels on the clothesline and when I gathered them first thing this morning, they were wetter than when I hung them yesterday afternoon.  I'll just wait for Ms Sun...she'll be taking care of the heat again today as temps rise to the mid-upper 80s.  It'll be another sunny, humid, hazy and hot day down the shore again.  There's not much to report about breezes (currently out of the South a 1-3mph).  Nothing's moving out there.  They will pick up today though (just in case...might want to pack a bungee cord for securing the beach umbrella) out of the S-SE at 10-15mph.  That'll certainly feel good at the beach.  Tonight...breezes shift from the S-SW at 15-20mph with temps where they are now along with cloud cover in the mix (20% chance of a passing shower or even a thunderstorm).  I have to once again mention that intense heat on the beach...essentials for a "safe and healthy" beach day: plenty of water, head/footwear, sunblock and umbrella (or sand chair with canopy).  The beach sand is burning hot and even with sandals or flipflops, it'll make its presence known when walking through it. There were hardly any people that took it in their stride.  Time and time again I saw beach folk running or just about running to reach the compact, cooler sand.  Yesterday, a young adult couple nearby enjoying their beach day were repeatedly applying sunblock yet were arranging their sand chairs to face the blazing sun all day without any cover whatsoever...no umbrella; no hats, no t-shirt, no break from the rays.  I was watching them both get a real dose of Ms Sun's rays. I pointed it out to my husband who said "We all have to learn."  Speaking of sunburn...you can get a bad burn from an overcast day on the beach.  Even when the sun's rays are hidden by haze or those milky clouds making the sun-worshipping more comfortable, no doubt you're getting Ms Sun's intense rays.
With all the scary beach day reality check...have a great time down the shore if you're here!

Mornin'!  Happy 4th of July!  It's 79° in Wildwood NJ.  96% humidity out there again with sunny skies and breezes hardly noticed (E-NE at 4-6mph).  It feels sticky out there.  It'll be another very warm day with humidity up there as temps climb up to the mid-upper 80s with some cloud cover in the mix and breezes out of the E-SE at 7-10mph.  Tonight...partly cloudy with temps in the mid-70s, high humidity and breezes out of the SE at 5-7mph.  We haven't had rain in quite awhile but there's a 15% chance of some rainfall tomorrow.

The Heatwave Continues

Mornin'!  It's 77° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got some misty/foggy/hazy conditions as Ms Sun's doing all she can to break on through.  It's still with hardly a breeze to note (S-SE 2-3mph).  It's as humid as you can get...100% humidity.  Most of the windows of the house are filmy.  The moment you step onto the back porch, your eyeglasses fog over due to the moisture in the air.  All the trees and plants are dripping.  It's heavy.  I would imagine it's like being in a tropical forest.  Expect this current heatwave to continue today with temps in the low 90s and plenty of hazy sunshine.  Breezes will be out of the S-SE at 8-10mph.  Tonight...clear, warm and humid with temps in the upper 70s and breezes out of the SE at 5-7mph.

Repeat of July 1st

Mornin'!  It's 81° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 87%.  No breezes to note.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly.  It's hot out there!  Being spoiled by air conditioning, it's quite a shocker leaving the good fortune of comfortable conditions when walking into a blast of heat and humidity stepping on the back porch this morning.  It'll be another really hot one today with temps tapping the low 90s again.  I realize it could be worse, but it's very hot and oppressive down the shore.  Expect plenty of sunshine, breezes out of the S-SE at 8-10mph and high humidity.  Remember all those things I've been posting...pack water, sunblock, covering (hat, umbrella, footwear etc.).  Tonight the temps will head into the upper 70s with partly clear skies and breezes out of the South at 4-6mph.

It's July!!! More Good Summer Weather Ahead!


Mornin'!  Happy July!  It's 79° in Wildwood NJ.   We're still in the thick of a nice heatwave as it's warm outside this morning.  It's sunny and still and let's not forget fragrant with the aromas of the heavy marsh (back bay) smell in the early haze of the island.  It's summer alright!  We're going to have a repeat of yesterday...plentiful "hot" sunshine pouring down giving us temps in the low 90s with light land breezes (W-NW) to start the day but by mid-day they'll switch from the South all at 4-8mph.  It'll be very hot on the beach.  You know the hot summer beach tips...pack plenty of water, sunblock, insect repellent and wear a hat, an umbrella and footwear!  It's just mind-blowing how many thoughtless folk are out there burning up right in front of my eyes each day on that beach.  So for tonight...beautiful as it'll be warm with partly cloudy skies and temps where they are now...upper 70s and Southerly breezes at 10-13mph.  Tomorrow...more of the same.
