Windy Humpday

Mornin'!  I'm back... was a bit laid up yesterday with a terrific head cold and just nursed it by staying in bed the entire day.  I'm thinking I've gained the lead on beating out this annoying congestion.  It's 43° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear with Ms Sun ready to rise and shine in about a half an hour.  There's a breeze out of the N-NW at 10-15mph which will ramp up big time today.  Expect a mix of clouds and sun with temps around where they are now and breezes out of the W-NW at 20-30mph +gusting (occasionally over 40mph).  You know that there will be a wind chill with those bad boys (it'll feel like 34°).  Tonight... partly cloudy,  a low of 32° and those W-NW gusty winds gusting over 40mph.  Wind chills will be in the 20s.  Tomorrow... much like today but lower temps and even colder wind chills.  I'm keeping an eye on Saturday's weather as it's the Wildwood Polar Bear Plunge.  The crazy folk run into the ocean to raise funds for the Special Olympics of NJ.  It's amazing to watch as you're bundled up while freezing on the beach waiting for the starter pistol to sound as the exposed (mostly scantily clad) bodies run by you heading for the very cold drink.  Anyway... it'll be cloudy and a cold low-mid 30° with a wind chill of 28° around plunge time...1:00p.m.
High tide:9:53a.m.
Low tide:3:58p.m.
Ocean temp:45°

I almost expected a shot of Toyman in a gold speedo!
