Stormy Day Ahead

3rd and JFK (now the norm for high tide)
Mornin'! It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  We're dry with thick cloud cover and breezes out of the E-SE at 10-12mph.  Very intense strong winds are going to be the main attraction as temps rise up to about 50° (39° wind chill) today as the winds and cloud cover begin to bring us moisture as rain (100% chance) beginning anytime now.  A storm is headed right up the eastern seaboard covering a vast area as far west as Ohio.  Along our coast forecasters have posted Wind Advisory and Flood Watch warnings.  Rainfall totals of 1-2 inches are expected with locally higher amounts possible.  We probably will see flooding due to the heavy rain especially where there's poor drainage and clogged storm drains from leaves and debris flying around.  Cold, wind-driven rains (no freezing rain or wintry mix for our immediate area) are expected to begin this morning and continue throughout the day into tonight.  Winds are coming out of the E-NE at 25-35mph w/gusting of up to 50mph. Secure anything that can move around the outside property.  Tonight's temps remain in the low 50s but these winds will make it feel much colder (upper 30s).  Tomorrow... the rains will have checked out but not the winds.  We're in for some unsettled, very windy weather.  Strap in!  High Tide: 1:27p.m.; Low Tide: 7:39p.m.;  Ocean temp:57°; Sunset: 4:47p.m.
