Clouds and Grayness Abound

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got misty, foggy, cloudy conditions at the moment.  Winds are out of the North at 5-10mph.  We're saturated and soggy from last night's storms.  We were blasted with some hefty thunderboomers and enough rain and wind to almost make me scream out "Auntie Em"!  The pooch was hiding under the furniture trembling most of the evening.  After spending most of the day yesterday gardening, pruning, raking, sweeping and getting the outside property in tip-top shape, it looks like it needs to be done all over again.  There are pollen buds, broken branches, torn off leaves and debris stuck everywhere in the leftover wetness.  And, of course it was trash night so those that placed their trash and recycle out at the curbs have trash and recycle strewn everywhere in the neighborhood. Okay, enough of complaining.  We're lucky to have gotten through a pretty major storm without any damage or injury.  Grateful.
As for the weather... it'll be a wet, misty, foggy start to the day.  Expect a mostly cloudy day with a 20% chance of a passing shower. We may see some peeks of Ms Sun in the afternoon.  Temps will rise into the upper 50s / low 60s with winds out of the E-NE at 10-15mph.  Tonight... cloudy with a 20% chance of showers as temps hover around the mid-upper 50s with winds out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly cloudy with 30-40% chance of showers and Sunday... 80% chance of showers.  I think April and May may have reversed their roles as May showers will probably be bringing June flowers.  Oh, I almost forgot... the New Moon is tomorrow and that means higher than normal tides.  Last night's storm did come at high tide as the nearby harbor was in my street!
High tides: 7:49a.m. and 8:05p.m.
Low tides: 1:36p.m.
Ocean temp: 54°
Sunset: 7:55p.m.
