Happy Father's Day!

My Dad - Off the coast of Wildwood NJ in 1967
Mornin'!  Happy Father's Day!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up.  Breezes are stiff out the S-SW at 18-22mph.  It's brisk and cool and lovely.  The town is thick with visitors and at the moment... very quiet.  It'll be a mostly sunny first half of the day with temps in the mid-70s and breezes out of the SW at 15-25mph.  By later this afternoon, the clouds roll on in with those blustery (S-SW) winds staying checked in at 15-25mph +gusting.  There's a 50% chance of a shower late this afternoon.  Tonight... cloudy with an 80% chance of thunderstorms (especially on the overnight) as temps drop back into the upper 60s.  Winds will still be around out of the SW at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... we'll probably wake to rain and/or thunderstorms as the clouds try and clear out.  It'll be a partly sunny day tomorrow.

Lovely Blustery Saturday

Boardwalk webcam
Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly after just raining torrents and somewhat flooding my street.   Thankfully, we're not at High tide as it could have been much worse.  It's breezy... E-NE at 15-20mph.  Expect more AM thunderstorms with fairly stiff winds switching to the East then again to the W-SW at 15-25mph w/gusting.  Temps will get up into the low-70s.  We may see peeks of sun later this afternoon.  Tonight... partly cloudy with temps in low 60s and winds out of the W-SW at 10-20mph with 20% chance of scattered rain showers and/or thunderstorms.  Tomorrow... sunny and breezy.  The weekend's still holding out as a very nice one although Saturday's looking very windy.  By the way... it's the "Jeep" invasion weekend among lots of other events.  https://wildwoodsnj.com/events-calendar/

Riding The Weather Wave

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with a light breeze out of the NE at 3-5mph.  The sea air has filled the house with all the windows still opened from yesterday afternoon and last night's beautiful weather.  The birds are happy and chirping and squawking all over the neighborhood.  It's a perfectly lovely morning down the shore.  Expect clouds to roll in later this morning as it'll become overcast and cloudy later (sometime during the afternoon).  Temps will get up into the low 70's with winds out of the E-NE at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy with rain developing after midnight.  Temps will drop down to where they are now (low-mid 60s) along with stiff Easterly breezes at 15-25mph.  It'll rain overnight (100% chance) into tomorrow.  It looks like a mostly gray, wet day tomorrow and tomorrow night.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday are looking pretty damn good though!  At this time... nice weekend ahead for all the Fathers out there!

Gray Morning / Sunny Afternoon


Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly as it has been throughout most of the night.  Everything's had a nice watering thanks to Mother Nature.  No need to unwind that hose today!  Winds are out of the NW at 15-17mph.  The rains will continue for a little while longer this morning as it'll eventually become clear probably late this morning / early afternoon.  Ms Sun will make check-in as temps will be in the mid-upper 70s.  Winds will continue out of the NW with gusting as high as 30mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with temps in the low-mid 60s and North winds at 8-10mph gusting as high as 20mph.  Tomorrow looks mostly sunny with showers coming in the evening again.  Thursday looks rainy but at this time Friday looks beautiful.  Father's Day weekend (although a bit too early to be sure) is looking beautiful as well.  The Full Moon is next Monday by the way.

Gray and Damp Monday

Mornin'!  It's 66° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and misty with E-SE breezes at 10-12mph.  Everything's damp and drippy from overnight drizzles and mist.  With all this cloud cover and fog, the roar of the ocean's waves crashing onshore is loud and clear from 6+ blocks away.  Expect fog and clouds early, then the possibility of off and on rain showers this afternoon.  Temps will get into the low-mid 70s with S-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Chance of rain is 50%.  Tonight... still lots of cloud cover with a 70% chance of showers and/or scattered thunderstorms.  Temps will drop back into the mid-upper 60s with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... starts out like today but by the afternoon... you guessed it... peeks of sunshine!  Enjoy it as we're not going to see much of Ms Sun this week as she takes a hiatus from shining.  After tomorrow afternoon, it looks like Friday will be the next totally sunny day.

Saturday Festivities Down The Shore


Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's foggy, misty and drippy.  Everything's soaked from the overnight heavy fog and mist.  It sounds like it's raining outside but it just the cloud that's sitting on the island.  Breezes are stiff out of the NE at 12-17mph.  It'll be a mostly gray and breezy day with misty conditions and winds out of the E-NE at 15-25mph.  We'll probably see sun shining through by this afternoon as temps climb up just a bit to 70°.  Tonight... 65°, cloudy with 20% chance of a passing shower and breezes out of the East at 17-25mph.  Tomorrow... more grayness with 40% chance of rain and of course still windy.  Monday... a washout.  Wish I had better weather news.  The Saturday Farmers Market is this morning in Wildwood along with the Mummers who are in town parading in North Wildwood along with the Elks convention and parade and lest not forget the Wildwood Annual Beer Fest are all in the lineup for the weekend's activities!  Lots happening this mix of clouds and sun, cooler and breezy weekend in the Wildwoods!

Mostly Gray Friday

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It's overcast with Ms Sun trying her best to shine through the cloud cover.  Breezes are currently very light out of the NE at 5-7mph.  It'll be a mix of weather today... sun and clouds with temps in the low 70s and breezes out of the E-NE at 9-11mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with temps in the mid-upper 60s and E-NE breezes at 7-10mph.  The weekend's looking "eh".  The Philly weather person said it'll be gorgeous down the Shore but I beg to differ.  She had it wrong in my opinion.  Saturday will be mostly cloudy with peeks of sun as well as very windy... 20-22mph breezes. Sunday will have 40% chance of rain in the morning and 60% chance in the evening.  It'll also be very windy on Sunday.  I can just see all the Philly folk listening to their wrong Shore weather forecast then packing their bikinis and tank tops in the bags to travel to the coast prepared to lather on the suntan lotion and bake in the sun thanks to their meteorologist.  Well, pack a hoodie and an umbrella!

The 75th Anniversary of D-Day

Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ. No breezes to note.  It's mostly clear with a leftover morning haze as Ms Sun's just beginning to share her glow.
Today is the anniversary of D-Day as we commemorate those storming the shores of Normandy France today with over 4,000 giving their lives during this attack.
There was some major rainfall and watering last night as Cape May County was under a storm watch from dinner time until bedtime.  Lots of watering those plants and gardens outside done by Mother Nature which I'm very grateful for.  It's a somewhat hazy/cloudy start to the day with eventual plentiful sunshine and temps tapping the 80s.  Breezes will be out of the West at 8-10mph.  Tonight... some cloud cover with temps in the low 70s and N-NW breezes at 3-5mph.  The weekend's now looking partly sunny/partly cloudy with strong winds.

Another Near Perfect Day!

Mornin'!  It's 57° in Wildwood NJ.  It's the anniversary of moving to Wildwood from Philadelphia today... 15 years ago! There's a light breeze out of the N-NW winds at 7-9mph.  It's crisp and feels a bit like an autumn morning.  Since I had left most of the windows open in the house before turning in last night, it feels a bit chilly this morning.  It's all good as Ms Sun is blazing through the front windows and beginning the warm-up as I blog.  It'll be a pleasant day with plentiful sunshine and temps in the low-mid 70s with breezes out of the W-NW at 8-10mph.  Tonight... some clouds roll in as it'll be partly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 60s and S-SW breezes at 7-9mph.  Tomorrow... cloudier and warmer (tapping 80°).

Sunny Monday

Mornin'!  It's 64° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the N-NW at 7-9mph.  Ms Sun's up and once again dealing with those leftover clouds along the horizon.  Once they drift on out as she rises, it'll be a sunny Monday.  Today will be another lovely, pleasant Spring day down the shore.  Temps will be in the low-mid 70s with breezes out of the NW at 10-17mph.  Tonight... clear with temps in the low 60s (possibly upper 50s) with W-NW breezes at 8-11mph.  It's a New Moon (barely visible with the effects of a Full Moon) today and the Tides will certainly be higher and lower than normal.

Repeat of Yesterday

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.   Ms Sun's up and shining along while those milky clouds that are trying to obscure her.  Breezes are very light out of the SW at 2-4mph.  The island birds are all expressing their pleasure as all the chirping and squawking is coming in my opened windows!  It's lovely!  Expect a mix of clouds and sun today much like yesterday.  Temps will be in the upper 70s (maybe tapping 80°).  There's a 30% chance of a severe stray thunderstorm late this afternoon / early evening.  Winds are nothing now but will ramp up significantly later this afternoon as well... out of the S-SW at 10-20mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 60s and another chance (40%) of a scattered thunderstorm.  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 10-20mph.  Keep your eye on the sky today!

June's Here!

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Welcome June!  Hopefully, this month of summer will provide just what we need... sunshine and warmth with a sprinkling of rain to water our plants.  Summer's just 20 days away!  It's officially "hurricane season" I'm not happy to report but it is what it is (and it's here until November unfortunately).  For this first weekend in June, expect partly sunny / partly cloudy skies.  Ms Sun's trying her best to shine down this morning but those heavy, milky clouds are keeping her tucked away as I type.  It appears it'll be like this throughout the day with temps in the low-mid 70s and breezes out of the E-NE then switching by this afternoon all at 5-8mph.  At the moment... no breezes to note. Tonight... partly cloudy with temps in the low-mid 60s and breezes out of the S-SE at 2-4mph.  Tomorrow and repeat of today but with a 40-50% chance of rain and/or thunderstorms by the evening.  Oh... and the "new moon" is Monday so we'll probably be seeing higher and lower tides this weekend.
