It's Independence Day! Happy 4th of July!

Mornin'!  It's 79° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy 4th of July!  Ms Sun's up and beginning today's cookout!  It's warm out there!  Not much in the line of breezes but what is (E-NE at 4-6mph) does feel refreshing coming from the direction of the ocean.  Humidity's 87° and Dewpoint is 74°.  It'll be a warm summer day this 4th with partly sunny skies, temps in the mid-upper 80s, (it went to 93° yesterday and I wouldn't be surprised if it does it again) and breezes (finally) out of the E-SE at 9-11mph.  So far this week the breezes have been very hot ("westerlies" off the land/sand) and not that effective for cooling you off while on the beach.  Today... a different story I'm happy to report as the beach will be the place to be for relief from the heat.  There is a 20% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm (periodically check the sky and/or doppler).  I think that's the established phrase on most hazy, hot and humid days.  At least it was on every weather report I researched this morning.  Tonight... temps back into the mid-70s with Easterly breezes at 6-8mph.  Tomorrow... looks like another partly sunny day with just about the same forecast posted in the weather forecasts.  The weekend's looking rather unsettled with rain (40-60% chance) posted.  I've got my eye on that one. Enjoy the "long" holiday weekend.  It's thick here on the island so make it a point to think of others first... be kind to one another and let's all reflect on our freedoms as well as this lovely seashore together!  Happy Independence Day!  And, don't forget footwear and sunscreen!
