The Twelfth Night

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's the final day of the Christmas season.  It's time to take the decorations down!  It's also known as the Twelfth Night (Shakespeare's close of the Christmas season) or Three Kings Day (Spain's version) or the Epiphany (Little Christmas or Christ's Baptism) or the beginning of Carnival Season (Mardi Gras).  As we celebrate the end (or beginning) of the holidays, the morning sky is clear as Ms Sun just rose and is beginning to paint the island those lovely pastel shades of sunrise.  She'll be warming us today. The breezes are light out of the NW at 7-10mph.  It'll be a mostly sunny day (some clouds in the mix) as temps stay around where they are now... mid-upper 40s.  Winds will increase a bit out of the W-NW at 15-20mph.  Tonight...clear with temps in the upper 30s and winds out of the NW at 12-14mph.  Tomorrow... sunny and colder (mid-30s with low 20's windchill).  The New Moon was yesterday and the tides will be a bit on the higher side.
High tide:7:57a.m. and 8:21p.m.
Low tide:2:06p.m.
Ocean temp:44°
