Sunny and Warm but Unsettled Again

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with no breezes. Everything's watered again from last night's thunderstorms and another nice soaking.   I could cut and paste the last couple days weather forecast into today's blog entry as we're about to have another rerun.  Expect hazy sunshine and temps in the upper 70s / low 80s (yesterday hit 85°) with breezes out of the SE at 9-12mph.  Humidity's high at 80-85%.  By this afternoon, the clouds begin to thicken as there's a 50-60% chance of more thunderstorms headed this way.  That chance will continue into the night as temps drop into the upper 60s / low 70s and with breezes out of the S-SW at 8-13mph.  Yesterday and last night's news and the breaking story / big story was the damaging tornadoes in the mid-west and Ohio valley.  Yesterday the suburbs of Philadelphia in Bucks County was seriously hammered with major storms and reported hail and winds and what they think was a tornado.  The Wildwoods lucked out again with thunder, lightning, heavy rain and major winds.  No damage other than some tree branches and trash strewn around along with neighboring outdoor furniture which was no match for the storms.  My thoughts are with those in the mid-west.  The news reports were just unbelievable as they appear to have received the worst of it.  Unfortunately, we're to expect more of the same today so keep it all hunkered down for at least another day but expect a reprieve from the unsettled, stormy weather at least for tomorrow and Saturday.  Sunday... not so much as more rain and possibly storms are in the forecast again.
