Eve Of Independence Day

Mornin'!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 84% and Dewpoint is 72°.  We're under cloud cover with hardly a breeze (W-NW at 2-3mph).  It's gonna be another warm one today (it was a hot one yesterday) but the humidity will head down into the 60%.  Temps will hover around 90° again.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds today with a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm.  We had a brief, mild shower late last night with a little lightning (not much in the line of thunder or winds).  Today the winds have the "West" direction beginning with W-NW this morning, then to the West, then to the W-SW all at 7-10mph.  It's basically what yesterday's winds were but hopefully, they won't turn out as stiff as yesterday's winds were.  It was a very hot land breeze which carried those greenhead flies here and there.  Not to mention lot's of bungees on the beach yesterday holding down those umbrellas.  I'd pack a bungee again today (along with the insect repellent) just in case when heading to the beach.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the low-mid 70s and E-SE winds at 5-10mph with a stray shower/storm possible (20% chance).  Tomorrow... a bit cooler temps (low-mid 80s) but it'll feel uncomfortably warm with humidity 90%, a mix of clouds and sun with Easterly (refreshing) breezes.  That 20% chance of rain showers and/or thunderstorm is in the forecast for the Holiday too.  And, by the way... the ocean in Wildwood Crest was opened yesterday and cleared from the yucky bacteria.
