Tropical Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy, wet and damp outside from overnight showers and those still humid conditions (humidity's 97% / dewpoint 74°) covering the island.  We're in "tropical mode" this week and there's no dry end in sight yet. This morning it's breezy with winds out of the E-NE at 12-16mph w/gusts. At least we did have some blue skies with sunshine yesterday (just along the coast) helping to dry us out a bit.  It'll be a gray day (no forecast has the sun shining down or peeking in today in Wildwood) with 20-40% chance of rain showers this afternoon as temps climb up just a bit to the upper 70s.  E-NE breezes will be in the mix today as well at 15-20mph.  Tonight...60% chance of showers with temps back down into the low 70s and breezes out of the E-NE 17-22mph.  Tomorrow looks like a repeat of today but Saturday and Sunday appear to have Ms Sun back shining through some cloud cover!  Oh...and by the way...the Morey's "Beach Jam" as well as "Boots at the Beach" have been cancelled this weekend due to the weather (all the Bars will be open for business though).
High tide:11:32a.m.
Low tide:5:25p.m.
Ocean temp:80°
UV Index:5-6
Rip Currents: Red Zone (high risk...don't chance dipping in the rough ocean with those dangerous currents).
