Sunny Friday - Looks Like Snow's Coming!

Mornin'!  It's 29° in Wildwood NJ.  It's an icy cold one this winter morning!  It's still dark and starlit out there with the wicked winds wifting (wafting) over the island out of the NW at 20-25mph +gusting.  Wind chill is 19°.  It hurts to be outside this January morn. Cover up those exposed parts!  We're up for abundant sunshine today though.  Ms Sun's on her way as I type as she'll begin peeking over the horizon any time now and begin trying to warm us.  Today's temps will be in the mid-upper 30s with winds out of the NW at 20-25mph giving us that ol' windchill (low-mid 20s).  Tonight...clear with temps in the mid-upper 20s and finally much lighter winds out of the N-NW at 7-9mph.  Now as for this Storm headed this way tomorrow night... (basically a Nor'easter) the last reports I've checked are saying that we're going to be cloudy tomorrow with snow showers beginning tomorrow night right into the first half of Sunday with an accumulation of 1-3" (70-100% chance).  I'm hearing that if we do get this first snowfall of the year this upcoming weekend,  it'll be a light, fluffy snow and easy to push or sweep away.  Whew... what a relief!  That's sarcasm by the way as I'm growing old, weary and tired of the snow removal routines (I can still sweep though thankfully).  As for tomorrow and those folks plunging into the 45° ocean... the temp will be 37° with light variable winds out of the N-NE at 2-4mph.  Hey... what more could you ask for as the ocean water will feel warmer than the air temp?!
High tide:11:13a.m.
Low tide:5:08p.m.
Ocean temp:45°
