TGIF! Starting and Ending Perfectly

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with Ms Sun rising as I type.  It's calm with very light breezes out of the SW at 4-6mph.  It'll be a mostly clear morning as rain clouds begin to cover the island.  Expect rain showers by mid-day with temps rising to the low-50s as breezes begin to ramp up.  Winds will shift from the W-NW at 15-20mph later.  Tonight... clouds clear out as temps drop back a little to the low-40s with NW breezes at 13-18mph.  Tomorrow... we'll wake to clear skies but rain showers are in the forecast for tomorrow evening.  Sunday looks like a rainy day with clearing by the evening.

Looking Like Another Nice One

Mornin'!  It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and bright.  Not much to report in the line of breezes as they're out of the N-NW at 2-4mph.  It's a sunny, crisp, quiet morning down the Shore.  Expect a mostly to partly sunny day.  Yesterday turned out to be a lovely sunny day by the way.  My guess is we'll probably have the same weather with sunshine and temps in the low-50s.  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 40s and winds out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... looks like partly cloudy with rain showers by the afternoon.  The weekend looks like it'll start out partly sunny on Saturday with Showers in the morning on Sunday.

Clouds Early, Clearing Later

Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with Ms Sun up and doing her best to shine through.  By the looks of the forecasts I've checked, we probably won't see much of her as the clouds will probably keep her hidden (at least until this afternoon / early evening).  Currently, winds are out of the N-NW at 10-15mph.  It'll be a mostly cloudy day with temps tapping 50° and breezes out of the NW at 15-20mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with some clouds thrown in the mix as temps drop back to the low-mid 40s and breezes out of the N-NW at 12-15mph.  Tomorrow looks much sunnier with lighter breezes than today and temps nearly tapping that 50° mark again.  Friday... rain showers in the afternoon. And at this time, the weekend's looking mostly gray and "iffy".  By Saturday night, the showers check back in for an overnighter or at least late Sunday morning / early afternoon.  It's all unsettled.

Mostly Cloudy with Peeks of Sun

Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with gray skies.  Breezes are light out of the West at 3-6mph.  I thought Ms Sun was checking in today but it seems that it'll be only for peeks.  It'll be mostly cloudy with temps in the low-50s.  West winds will be wifting (wafting) over the island at 5-7mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 40s and NW breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny as brisk winds will be back. Speaking of "will be back"... rain could be checking in for Friday and Saturday.

Another Gray One

Mornin'!  It's 40° in Wildwood NJ.  It's still breezy with North winds making their presence known at 15-20mph.  Windchill is 33°.  It's gray, slightly foggy and misty.  Everything's drenched and soaking wet.  Expect some drizzles this morning as the clouds are staying checked in until tomorrow.  Temps will get up into the mid-upper 40s with periods of light rain (50% chance) and those NW winds at 12-18mph.  Tonight... cloudy with periods of rain showers as temps drop back into the mid-upper 30s. NW winds will finally become much lighter at 6-9mph.  Good news... Ms Sun returns tomorrow with temps in the 50s! Oh, and it looks like she'll be staying checked in throughout the whole week giving us that warmth and Vitamin D we need and crave.

Nasty Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ!  It's gray with Ms Sun doing a little brightening up the skies at the moment.  It's mostly cloudy and misty though.  There's a 40% chance of showers developing late this afternoon / early evening.  Temps will get up into the low 50s today.  So, let's talk "winds" as they're the star of the show this weekend.  Winds are currently out of the NE at 25-35mph + gusting giving us a wind chill of 32°.  They've been howling and pruning since yesterday morning.  Since this storm system is considered a "Nor'easter" that's passing through this weekend, those winds out of the NE will pound the coast in this holding pattern at 25-35mph with gusting over 40mph until Monday morning.   It'll be mostly cloudy and misty all throughout the day as temps tap 50°.  Wind chill will be in the low-40s.  Tonight... cloudy and still very windy with a 40% chance of rain, temps in the upper 40s (windchill-low 40s).   Be aware there is a Coastal Flood Warning posted beginning today at 8am until Monday at 5pm. We're to expect tidal flooding and major beach erosion as these winds (and later periods of rain) continue to pound our shoreline and coast.  North Wildwood will certainly take a hit as the shoreline line is already beaten down and very fragile. Note the high tides as low-lying areas and many streets and roadways may become flooded and impassable.  Don't damage the undercarriage of your vehicle and attempt to drive through floodwaters!

Blustery Saturday

Delaware Bay - Cape May
Mornin'!  It's 40° in Wildwood NJ.  Windchill is 30° with NE winds at 25-30mph +gusting.  Ms Sun's up but battling through the morning clouds.  She has her work cut out for her as the clouds are staying checked in throughout the entire weekend.  Expect partly cloudy / partly sunny conditions today with lots of blustery NE winds at 28-33mph +gusting.  Temps will be in the mid-40s with windchills low-mid 30s.  Tonight... cloudy with temps in the low-40s and windchill of low 30s due to the NE winds at 25-35mph.  Tomorrow... gray and blustery with temps in the low-50s (feeling like low-40s due to those NE winds) also showers  will be developing later in the day.

TGIF

Mornin'!  It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  It's wet and cloudy with light breezes out of the N-NW at 2-4mph.  It rained overnight but it seems that at the moment we're beginning to dry out.  No rain is in today's forecast but it'll be mostly cloudy, temps tapping 50° and North winds will be light at 4-6mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 30s and N-NW winds will begin to ramp up from 10-15mph to 20-25mph +gusting after midnight.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny with temps in the mid-40s.  Those Northeast winds will be checked in beginning late tonight until Monday... NE at 20-30mph +gusting.  Rain's headed back our way in the early morning hours Sunday as it looks like a perfectly miserable day with rain and high winds. Prepare accordingly for the Eagles game.  For today though... not too shabby with much milder temps and possibly peeks of sunshine throughout the afternoon (according to a couple forecasts I checked out).

Last Of The Calm Sunny Days For Awhile

Mornin'!  It's 29° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with moonlit and starlit skies.  It's calm with hardly a breeze out of the SW at 2-3mph.  There's frost on the pumpkin this morning as everything outside is glistening with a layer of frost.  Hubby noted a light sheen of ice on the harbor when walking the pooch this morning as well.  Expect a partly sunny day today with temps just about tapping 50°.  Winds will remain calm today out of the SW then becoming West by this evening at 4-6mph.  There's a 50% chance of rain showers tonight (mostly on the overnight) as temps drop into the mid-upper 30s with winds remaining calm.  Enjoy as tomorrow looks like rain for the first half of the day (before noon).  Extreme winds plan on checking in and staying for the weekend.  Saturday looks cloudy and very windy as we'll probably see rain and wind through to Sunday (around mid-day).  These upcoming rainy/windy weather events are being considered Nor'easters.  Meaning... rain (40% chance) and extremely windy with more beach erosion likely (mostly in North Wildwood) and of course the chance of tidal flooding.  Strap in and don't even bother with the hairspray.

Crisp Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 26° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with Ms Sun up over the horizon.  It's a bit breezy (N-NW) with 15-20mph winds making the windchill... (what it feels like on the skin) 15°!  It's feeling very wintry out there today.  I even saw some icy patches on some of the surfaces on my back porch and yard.  It'll be a cold one today even with Ms Sun checked in all day. Temps will be in the mid-upper 30s with wind chills in the upper 20s due to the N-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... clear and moonlit, temps in the mid-upper 20s and N-NE breezes at 3-5mph.  Tomorrow... clouds are checking in but the temps will be in the mid-upper 40s!  However you look at it, some yummy homemade soup is on the menu here to help take out that autumn chill.  Winter is 38 days away.

Full Beaver Moon Today

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It's gray and completely overcast.  Breezes are out of the W-SW at 15-20mph.  With all that said, it's a relatively okay morning outside.  It doesn't feel that cold and for sure doesn't hit you with a blast of winter.  Yet.  It's coming later today though.  Expect a mild, breezy start to the day without Ms Sun.  Showers are heading this way later this morning as they bring with them a significant drop in temps and major winds.  It's going to be miserable.  The Soup is getting made today! By early evening temps will be in the mid-30s with SW winds at 20-25 +gusting of 35mph making it feel like the upper 20s.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming clear with a low of 24° feeling like 18° with a North wind at 20-25mph +gusting.  Get out the scarf and gloves!  Tomorrow... sunny, high near the mid-30s and NW winds at 10-20mph.  There is a Gale Warning and Small Craft Advisory posted here until 6am tomorrow.  Expect rough seas and big wave action along with more beach erosion.  It is the Full Beaver Moon (named that by early settlers and indians as it's the season that Beavers take winter shelter in their lodges). I'll just throw out that ol' reminder about the high tides coming from that Moon... with the rain, wind and moon it all equaling one thing to me... possibility of island flooding.  Don't drive through floodwaters!

Hubby's Army Selfie - 1969
Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  It's Veterans Day as we reflect and salute all those who have served in our Military providing us our freedom.  It's observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  Thank you for your service!  It seems that "thank you" just doesn't cut it for all the sacrifices our military has made for us.
The weather will cooperate here in the Northeast along our coast providing a pleasant autumn day for our Vets and all of us to enjoy.  We're even going to have a rare event with the planet Mercury crossing in front of Ms Sun's face known as a "transit".  It'll only be visible as a tiny black dot with a specialized solar equipped telescope. Experts say that those old "solar eclipse glasses" won't provide the magnification needed to see the tiny speck.
It's currently still dark outside this early morn with a starlit and (almost a full moon) moonlit sky.  Breezes are out of the SW at 8-11mph.  It'll be a partly sunny/partly cloudy day with temps tapping 60° and S-SW breezes at 9-12mph.  Tonight... increasing cloud cover as temps drop in the upper 40s/low 50s with S-SW breezes at 12-17mph.  Tomorrow... gray with rain and falling temperatures in the forecast.  We could see the 30s by dinner time.  It'll also be windy and raw along with that 80% chance of precipitation.  My guess is we won't have the pleasure of seeing a moonrise tomorrow so if you're interested, today may be the best chance.  Ms Sun returns on Wednesday along with much stronger winds and even colder temps.  I'm already working on the next batch of soup for that blustery, cold snap in the forecast.  It's looking like "Italian Wedding or Escarole" soup is up next on the homemade soup of the day menu!

Mild Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 43° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy with light breezes out of the South at 4-7mph.  Ms Sun is on her way but will have her work cut out for her as the morning clouds plan on sticking around a bit.  Expect a mostly sunny day though with temps heading into the upper 50s.  Breezes will be out of the SW at 10-15mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, upper 40s, SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... almost the same as today with mild temps and it looks like more clouds than sun.  The Full Moon is Tuesday and we just might be able to see one of those spectacular moonrises this week (it's all about the cloud cover).  Tonight's moonrise is a half-hour before sunset.  And, with the Full Moon (and New Moon for that matter) note how high the tides have been as of late.  It's all about the pull of the Moon's force.  The "force" is with us!

Sunshine With A Few Afternoon Clouds

Mornin'!  It's 29° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels like 21° with a breeze out of the N-NE at 5-8mph.  It hasn't been in the 20s since last year on Thanksgiving day (11-22-18).  It's clear, with a moonlit and starlit sky.  It's crisp and wintry with a handful of sea air thrown in the morning darkness.  Expect a chilly day with partly sunny skies and temps in the mid-40s.  Breezes will be light at 4-6mph out of the NE this morning; switching from the South by this afternoon and then by this evening... be out of the S-SW still at 4-6mph and all of which will help with keeping the chill down.  Tonight's temp... upper 30s / low 40s.  Tomorrow... sunshine and in the mid-upper 50s but with slightly breezier conditions.

TGIF!


Mornin'!  It's 37° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels like 29° with the North winds at 8-12mph.  Part of the sky is clear (mainland side) and the other part is cloud covered (ocean side).  Ms Sun's up and has crossed the horizon about 10 minutes ago but she's not victorious in shining over the island yet this morning.  It's cold outside.  I didn't see any frost on the pumpkin, but that sea air's got a perfect preview of "icy winter" all over it.  Thankfully, it'll be a sunny day with temps in the mid-40s (it'll feel like the upper 30s) with stiff N-NW winds at 20-30mph creating that windchill.  Tonight... mostly clear, temps in the mid-upper 30s (windchill: upper 20s), and North winds at 10-15mph.  The weekend's looking seasonably cool with partly sunny skies and less wind for tomorrow.  Sunday... mostly sunny, temps back up in the mid-50s with stiff winds checked back in (not quite as annoying as today).  This morning, I turned the ol' furnace on for the first time since last Spring.  Everything looks (and feels) great as this little seashore cottage warms up with a heater that seems to be (thankfully) working for another cold season.  We've been depending on the little gas fireplace to warm our bones as of late but the house heater is just the ticket today!  Happy Friday!

Mix of Clouds and Sun

Mornin'!  It's 54° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under mostly cloudy conditions with some breaks that Ms Sun's trying to peek through at the moment.  Breezes are out of the S-SW at 7-10mph.  It's feeling a bit chilly and raw outside this morning.  It's that gray sky I'll bet.   Expect mostly cloudy conditions today with periodic peeks of sun as temps climb up a bit more and tap 60°.  Clouds will eventually take over later as SW breezes will switch to NW by this evening when there's a 60-80% chance of rain.  Temps will drop down to the upper 40s tonight into the overnight (it'll feel like the upper 30s with winds beginning to ramp up).  It looks like we'll wake to sunshine tomorrow, but with much more blustery conditions.  The National Weather Service has issued a Small Craft Advisory which is in effect from tonight until tomorrow morning.  The weekend's still looking partly sunny / partly cloudy with cool temps.

Sunny Days!!!

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and still.  Ms Sun's up and no breezes to note.  It'll be a pleasant sunny day with temps in the mid-upper 50s and breezes out of the W-NW at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, moonlit and still with temps in the mid-40s.  The weekend at this time looks seasonably cool (40s and 50s) with partly sunny conditions.  Oh... Our Mayor Trioano (of 16 years) was voted out in yesterday's election by the way... the new team of Commissioners are Mikulski, Fitzimons and Byron and they'll decide which one will be the new Mayor!

Election Day

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  We're saturated from the overnight rains.  Everything's been nicely watered.  It's not raining at the moment and by the sound of the forecasts, the rains may be checking out as I type.  Breezes are barely there out of the SW at 3-5mph.  It's actually a nice morning but with some ominous clouds overhead.  Expect a mostly cloudy morning with a 20% chance of rain showers.  Things should clear by this afternoon as temps get into the low-60s while Ms Sun tries to peek in.  Breezes will switch out of the W-NW at 6-8mph. Tonight... clear with temps in the mid-50s with NW breezes at 4-6mph.  Not a bad day (or evening) to get out and cast your vote!  Tomorrow... sunny with temps in the mid-50s.

Lots Of Birds Heading South This Time Of Year
Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  Darkness is fading but it's still starlit outside.  Dawn's on the horizon as the sky is beginning to brighten.  Breezes are light out of the NW at 8-10mph.  It has an autumn chill in the air (not as much as yesterday morning though).  It'll be another beautiful Autumn day with plenty of sunshine, temps in the mid-50s and breezes somewhat stiff out of the W-NW at 15-20mph.  Tonight... clear, temps in the upper 40s and breezes out of the NW at 7-10mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same but less breezy.  We all turned our clocks back one hour before turning in last night... did you?

Last Day for Daylight Savings Time

Backroad to The Shore (route 347) 
Mornin'!  It's 39° in Wildwood NJ.  Hasn't been in the 30s here since April 2nd.  It's cold outside.  It's also calm (breezes out of the N-NE at 2-4mph) and bright as Ms Sun's about to rise above the horizon in about 5 minutes.  It'll be a lovely autumn day with plentiful sunshine and temps in the mid-50s with W-NW breezes light and variable mostly at 3-5mph.  Tonight... clear, with temps in the upper 40s and breezes out of the W-NW at 5-8mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same but slightly breezier.  Tonight... turn the clocks back one hour as Daylight Savings Time ends and Standard Time begins.  Not a fan of dusk settling in and sunset before 5pm.  But, it'll be March 8th before you know it.  Oh... it's "homemade soup" day as Cream of Celery-Leek soup is on tap.  It's time to use all the overload amounts of celery in the fridge!

A Key West Sunset
Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly (thank God).  It's still windy (not as bad as yesterday and last night) with winds out of the W-NW at 15-20mph.  Happy November!  It feels like November when stepping out the door this morning.  Blog's a bit late as I took sleeping in to another level, (I think my body's saying it's time to catch up after a wild ride vacation) but I'm raring to go as the Sun pours in and this delicious cup of coffee brings me to life.  It'll be a slightly blustery day with temps in the mid-50s, winds out of the W-NW at 15-20mph and plenty of sunshine.  Tonight... clear, temps in the upper 40s and winds out of the N-NW at 9-11mph.  Tomorrow... calm and sunny with temps in the low-50s and Sunday... sunny and cold (temps barely tapping the 50s) with the blustery winds checking back in!

Happy Halloween

Mornin'!  Happy Halloween!  I'm back!  I'm trying to get grounded here as I focus on "Wildwood Weather" for the first time in about 10 days.  It's pretty dreary outside in Wildwood.  Temp is 65° with gray, overcast skies and winds out of the South at 25-30mph +gusting.  We must have had some major winds during my hiatus as the tree out front is bare from all its leaves and the tree out back has been shed of its thin branches as they're strewn all over the backyard.  Major clean up this weekend for sure.  So one of hubby's bucket list items has been checked off the list as he drove from Wildwood NJ to Key West Florida and back again (3000+ miles).  We pulled in last night.  It was very long but got to not only enjoy Key West but had the opportunity to stop in Georgia to visit our daughter and her hubby for a couple nice days.  One of the best parts of the drive itself was watching the weather change from cool, blustery weather to the lush warm tropics and back again to Fall with some spectacular leaf foliage colors along the way (all in the Northeast corridor to and from Georgia). Didn't note any leave color changes at all in Florida.  The average daily temp in Florida was 86° and humid by the way.  The drive was perfect and amazing.  No major traffic hiccups but we did have rain (miserably heavy at times) for the drive on the way home through the Carolinas.
For today's weather, expect a gray day with temps in the upper 60s and strong winds out of the South at 25-30mph +gusting.  We may see some misty periods today with the rain possibly coming tonight (50% chance) with scattered showers and it'll come later when the little trick-or-treaters are in bed.  Tomorrow... we'll probably wake to those overnight rain showers but Ms Sun will return by mid-day.  The weekend's looking sunny and cooler (50s).  Also, this weekend is "turn the clocks" back an hour ("Fall" behind) Saturday night before turning in for kick-starting "daylight savings time".   Oh... I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that today is "goodbye" to October!  Until next year, we bid adieu to you!  It's been a pretty terrific month!  Happy Halloween!

Blustery Thursday

Key West
Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  Yesterday afternoon's rains have long gone but the winds have no intention of checking out.  We've got those Westerly winds pounding the island since last night and will continue throughout today into this evening all at 25-35mph +gusts of 50mph.  It's partly cloudy at the moment and will become mostly sunny today with temps in the low 60s.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the low 50s and winds out of the W-NW at 20-30mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, temps tapping 60° with blustery conditions but nothing like today. The weekend's looking 50-50 with Saturday being the nicer of the two days with sunshine and hardly a breeze and Sunday looking rainy.
So, here comes the next hiatus for my ol' weather blog.  Vacation begins today as I'm heading to Key West for their Halloween celebration (Fantasy Fest) again.  I'll be checked out until at least Halloween.
If your curious about the weather in Wildwood, simply click on the last link on my blog page under "Personal Favs" which is "Wunderground".  Type in "08260" (Wildwood's zip code) or just type in "Wildwood NJ" and in my opinion you'll see one of the most accurate forecasts here at the Shore.  Also, check out the Key West webcams https://floridakeyswebcams.tv/ and who knows you may catch a glimpse of me with all those fun-loving, and bit crazed Halloween folk next week.

Hump Day Washout

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear as Ms Sun's about to make her grand entrance in about a half-hour.  Breezes are light out of the S-SE at 5-8mph.  The clouds are checking in later this morning as the start to a nasty Nor'easter has us in its sights.  Expect a few showers later this morning, then a soaking rain this afternoon.  Temps will just about tap 70° as that 100% chance of rainfall may reach an inch.  Winds are going to be out of the S-SE at 20-30mph +gusting.  Tonight... 70% chance of rain early in the evening.  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 25-35mph +gusting over 50mph.  Temps will drop down into the mid-upper 50s.  Expect low-lying area tidal flooding with this bad boy!  Tomorrow... blue skies but windy as hell.

Another Lovely Fall Day

Mornin'!  It's 54° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and still (N-NE breezes at 4-6mph).  Ms Sun's due up over the horizon at any moment.  It'll be another (albeit cooler than yesterday) beautiful autumn day with plentiful sunshine.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 60s with breezes out of the E-NE at 8-10mph.  Tonight... clear, low 60s, and SE breezes at 7-9mph.  Tomorrow... gray with rain on the menu.

Columbus Day Monday

Mornin'!  Happy Columbus Day!
It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and damp (from the spritzing the island received last night).  It's calm and quiet as the breezes are light out of the W-NW at 4-6mph.  Ms Sun's trying to rise above the clouds but she's got her work cut out for her this morning.  Expect a sunny day though once these morning clouds check out.  It'll be a beautiful sunny day with temps tapping 70° and breezes out of the W-NW at 7-9mph.  Tonight... clear with temps back in the low-60s and breezes out of the W-SW at 4-6mph.  Tomorrow... sunny and cooler with a high of 63°.

Full Moon Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under some cloud cover as Ms Sun rises.  It's making a spectacular, colorful sunrise no question about it.  Breezes are out of the North at 4-6mph.  It'll be a partly cloudy morning giving way to complete cloud cover as the rains are coming after mid-day.  Thunder and lightning are even possible.  Temps will get up to the mid-60s with E-NE winds at 5-10mph in the first half of the day.  The chance of rain this afternoon is 70%.  Tonight... more clouds with 80% chance of rain and/or thunderstorms.  Temps will drop back down into the upper 50s / low 60s with winds out of the S-SE at 5-10mph.  Keep your eyes on the Tides due to the Full Moon today as the island's been doing a bit of flooding as of late.  We'll probably not get a chance to view the Moonrise unfortunately due to the wet weather projected.

Full Moon - High Tide Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.   It's sunny and bright.  We've had a nice cleansing with last night's very hide tide and all is well with the world again.  Hubby did clear debris from around the car in the driveway (big 4' plank of wood wedged near the back tire) this morning.  The Tides were extremely high on last night's high tide and came creeping over the bulkhead, sidewalks and right into my drive and yard.  A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until mid-day today.  I don't expect it to be as bad as the last two days high tide though.  Take precautions just in case.  Anyone who drove through those waters last night (and there were loads of folks doing just that) now have some serious salty undercarriage issues on their vehicles now until they have it cleaned. Some plowed through the waters so aggressively that the wake they generated came rushing into all the driveways and yards around the neighborhood here.  Enough of those annoying, relentless tides!
Today's weather will be lovely.  A beautiful autumn day is in store with plentiful sunshine, temps in the upper 60s / low 70s and breezes out of the W-NW at 8-10mph.  Tonight... clear, NW breezes at 10-15mph and temps in the mid-60s.  Tomorrow looks cloudy with the possibility of rain in the afternoon  (60% chance) into the overnight.  It's the Full Moon tomorrow as well.
Monday... sunny after the morning showers check out.

Coastal Flood Warnings Posted Until Tomorrow Morning

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's partly cloudy as Ms Sun due to cross the horizon in about half an hour from now.  It's breezy with winds out of the North at 15-20mph.  It'll be a mostly cloudy day with peeks of the sun as temps get up into the mid-60s.  Breezes will remain out of the North at 18-20mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 50s and winds out of the North at 10-15mph.  The weekend's looking 50-50 with Saturday being the sunnier of the two days.  Sunday afternoon into the evening has a 60% chance of showers in the forecast.  Monday (Columbus Day) seems to be the nicest day so far with clouds checking out by morning, plentiful sunshine and temps in the low-70s.  So, this Coastal Storm hovering hundreds of miles off our coast has created some havoc with that ol' tidal flooding.  On last night's high tide, the ocean was crashing over the seawall in North Wildwood and the tide almost came up to the boardwalk in Wildwood.  In the low-lying areas, the flooding was pretty intense.  On my street (back bay / low-lying area), the water rose over the sidewalks onto and up the driveways.  Expect more of that on today's and tonight's high tides.  Be prepared for rising water levels and take appropriate action.  Move your vehicles and do not drive through floodwaters (like some I witnessed creating a wake down my street on last night's high tide).  Your vehicle will surely be damaged with all that corrosive saltwater seeping into every nook and cranny of your undercarriage.  The Flood sirens were blaring as well as I was also notified by phone by our emergency services on the island to move the vehicles. By the looks of things, lots of neighbors chose to take heed.  A few did not unfortunately.  Remember that the high tide on the backside (bay/marsh area) is one hour later than the high tide posted.  The Full Moon is Sunday and is also attributing to these intense high tides.  Take precautions.

We've Got That March Feel

Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under partly cloudy skies with winds out of the North at 10-15mph.  It seems that the winds have calmed down a bit this morning but it feels chilly outside.  In fact, it feels chilly inside!  This weather has March (my least favorite month) written all over it.
So, there's this early season coastal system lingering off our coastline into Saturday when it will finally push eastward.  There's a "full moon" this weekend too.  Winds will persistently blow toward our coast today through to Saturday. This onshore wind will create several impacts including rough surf conditions and rip currents for a prolonged period of time.  Widespread moderate coastal flooding is expected including beach erosion.  There's a "coastal flood advisory" posted until mid-day today and a "coastal flood warning" in effect from 4pm today until 1pm Saturday.   This means that there will be moderate or even "major" tidal flooding occurring.  Be prepared for rising water levels and take appropriate action (move your vehicles, do not drive through floodwaters, road closures etc.).
For today... expect partly cloudy windy conditions with Ms Sun definitely peeking in and giving us her autumn warmth!  Temps will get up into the mid-upper 60s with winds out of the North at 15-25mph +gusting. No rain is in today's forecast as far as I've checked.  Tonight... partly cloudy and windy (North 15-25mph +gusting of up to 40mph) with temps back down into the mid-upper 50s.  Tomorrow... even windier, cloudier and cooler (lucky if we tap 60°).  The weekend's looking seasonably cool and sunnier with much less wind!

Exfoliating Humpday

Mornin'!  It's 60° in Wildwood NJ.  It continues to be cloudy and gray with those "bad hair day" winds wifting (wafting) over the island from the N-NE at 20-25+gusting.  I slept in today because of all of that.  It was perfect.  I had the bedroom windows opened slightly so I could get the effects of the salt air and hear that beach erosion wave action 6+ blocks away throughout the night (and morning).  We're supposed to have some major beach erosion and possible tidal flooding today thanks to those winds pushing on the surf and a Full Moon on the way this weekend (Sunday).  Expect a gray day with lots of winds and a 50% chance of rain.  Winds will be out of the N-NE at 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be in the low 60s.  Tonight... 20% chance of rain with clouds still checked in and temps drop back to the upper 50s.  Winds will be out of the N-NE at 20-25mph.  Tomorrow... not as gray as we just might see peeks of sun but the winds aren't going anywhere just yet.  Friday... back to being a mostly gray day with those pesky "bad hair day" winds still checked in!   The weekend's looking a bit brighter and calmer.

Sweater Weather

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got clouds and winds this morning.  Winds are ramped up and making their presence known out of the N-NE at 18-22mph +gusting.  It'll be a cloudy day with temps in the mid-upper 60s.  Winds are staying checked in pretty much today along with the rest of the week.  They'll be out of the NE at 18-24mph +gusting.  There's a 30% chance of precipitation.  Tonight... 50% chance of showers with temps in the low-60s and NE winds at 20-25mph +gusting as high as 40mph.  It's definitely "sweater" weather along with a bad hair day.  Tomorrow... a repeat of today with cooler temps in the 50s tomorrow night.  Thursday... more of the same.  Friday... more of the same.  Saturday... more of the same.  Sunday... a bit warmer (near 70°) and calmer
with (finally) peeks of sunshine.

Ahhhh... That Sea Breeze!

Mornin'!  I'm back!  I had loads of fun (and hard work) watching my babies (grandson and grandaughter) for a few days for my daughter and son-in-law while they vacationed.  It's good to be home. It's now time to get ready for my vacation in a couple of weeks.  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny along the ocean as Ms Sun's up and shining brightly.  Breezes are light out of the South at 7-10mph.  Expect lots of clouds today though.  For now, Ms Sun is shining but eventually, the clouds will take over.  It'll be a mostly cloudy, breezy day.  Temps will get up to the mid-70s with Southerly breezes at 15-18mph.  There's a 30% chance of rain beginning late this afternoon.  Tonight... cloudy with temps in the upper 60s / low 70s.  There's a 60% chance of rain and winds out of the South at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... another gray day with 40% chance of rain and heavy winds.  This entire week looks pretty much crapola.  Expect lots of clouds, periods of rain and plenty of breezes this upcoming week.  According to some of my weather sites, the next day we'll see a sunny day will be Monday.  Remains to be seen.  Enjoy this lovely morning though.  I just opened some windows and that lovely briny fragrance of the sea is wifting (wafting) right in!  I'm taking it all in and enjoying every minute!  It's great to be back by the sea!

Warm Humpday

Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and once again trying to get through those morning clouds along the horizon.  She'll make it too as it'll be a sunny day with temps in the low 80s.  It'll be another "jewel" today and a bit warm with plenty of sunshine and breezes out of the W-SW at 9-11mph.  Tonight... partly clear / partly cloudy with temps in the mid-upper 70s and breezes out of the W-SW at 5-8mph becoming NE at 13-18mph.  There's a 20% chance of precipitation tonight.  Tomorrow... considerably cooler (the upper 60s / low 70s) as it'll be cloudy and possibly rainy (30% chance of showers) with E-NE winds at 15-20mph. Friday will begin with showers in the morning and Ms Sun will prevail albeit very windy.  Saturday and Sunday will have a mix of clouds and sun with much cooler temps (upper 60s / low 70s).  It'll be perfect for the Gentlemen's Race on the beach this weekend!  I'm heading to the big City for babysitting detail and will be back for Monday's blog!  Have a great rest of the week and weekend!

October's Here!

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Welcome October!  The "Jewel" continues today and tomorrow.  And, there's a lot happening this month.  I'll be taking a hiatus from blogging two times this month.  The first one beginning the end of this week (10-3 to 10-7) as I'm on a long weekend grandchildren babysitting detail off the island.  And, the other is from 10-17 to 10-31 for my next Key West (as well as a Georgia-visit) trip!
For now though... October's kicking off the month beautifully.  It's still (breezes out of the S-SW at 3-5mph) and partly cloudy.  Ms Sun's up and pushing through the morning cloud cover.  It'll be a partly cloudy morning giving way to mostly sunshine today as temps rise up to the low-mid 70s.  Breezes will ramp up beginning from the S-SW at 8-14mph to the South this afternoon at 15-18mph +some gusting.  Tonight... clear, with temps in the upper 60s / low 70s and breezes out of the S-SW at 15-20mph.  Tomorrow... warm and sunny (mid-upper 80s).

See You September!

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It's currently sunny and breezy (East 10-15mph) this last day of September.  This year, September's been very good to us in regards to the weather.  It was near perfect in every way almost every day.  The "Jewel" truly displayed its brilliance this year.  I'm sorry to see it go that's for sure.  Hopefully, October will give us those sparkly peeks every now and then.  It'll be a fairly nice day today with a sunny start as it'll be mostly sunny this morning with clouds filtering in and increasing this afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-70s with breezes out of the East at 12-16mph.  Tonight... cloudy with temps in the low-mid 60s and E-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same with a mix of sun and clouds and breezes.  Wednesday will have that summery feel as it taps the 80s once again!  As we leave you in our wake... see you in September...until next year!

Humpday Mix of Sun and Clouds

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got an autumn seashore chill in the house this morning.  Ms Sun's up and shining through some cloud cover making for a lovely picturesque morning along the coast.  We currently have some of those N-NE breezes at 10-12mph which intend to ramp up today.  Expect a partly cloudy, breezy day with temps in the upper 60s and breezes out of the NE at 19-22mph +gusting.  The sky should clear by later this afternoon / early evening as temps begin to drop back down into the low-60s with breezes still brisk out of the NE at 16-22mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, not as breezy but still seasonably cool (upper 60s).  The weekend's looking A-OK with plenty of sunshine and temps in the low-mid 70s. 
High tide: 11:05AM
Low tide: 5:14PM
Ocean temp: 72°
Sunset: 7:05PM
UV Index: 6-7
Rip Current: Red (danger) zone.  Be extremely careful of the rough seas today if entering the surf.  Remember... no lifeguards on our beaches now!
