Brand New Month Dawns! Welcome August! Happy Hump Day!

Mornin'!  It's 77° in Wildwood NJ.  Greetings August!  Looks like a fairly decent day to welcome August to the weather menu. We're under some cloud cover as Ms Sun's waiting for her turn.  Everything's wet and dripping with the humid air (humidity's 95% / dewpoint's 76°) as morning sunshine is about to break on through.  There's a light breeze (SW 5-10mph).  It'll be mostly sunny today with a 15-20% chance of a pop-up shower and/or thunderstorm.  Overall, it looks like a decent weather (beach) day but a couple weather reports are forecasting a somewhat cloudy morning with a mix of clouds and sunshine this afternoon.  It'll be warm and humid as temps get into the low 80s with breezes out of the SW at 13-15mph.  Tonight...mostly clear and warm with temps in the mid-70s and breezes out of the S-SW at 16-22mph.  The ocean will have 5-6 foot swells including dangerous rip currents.  You might want to check with the lifeguards before entering the surf.  For now, the weekend's looking 50-50 with Sunday being the better of the 2 days as Saturday's possibly "wet" during the day (not so much at night).
High tide:11:45a.m.
Low tide:5:28p.m.
Ocean temp:76°
UV Index:10 (very high)
Rip Currents: Red zone (high risk -  potentially dangerous conditions)
