Well, Hello Ms Jewel!

Mornin'!  Welcome, September!  The "Jewel" has checked in!  For anyone who's never heard of it before, September (for the most part) has the most exquisite weather (aside from tropical storms or hurricanes) and is known here as "The Jewel".  Basically, the warm ocean keeps the island perfectly insulated with warmish,  (not-so-humid or autumn-like) near perfect weather conditions.  You'll find the sky to be such a vivid blue, it astounds you.  The sunrises and sunsets are more breathtaking than any other month.  And, the shoobies and most vacationers are gone as this lovely little island begins to belong to the locals again! No more 6am grocery shopping! 
It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with breezes out of the E-NE at 10-15mph.  Humidity's on the low side at 70% with a dewpoint of 64°.  We're looking at another lovely day down the Shore with mostly sunny skies, temps in the upper 70s and E-NE winds at 12-16mph + gusting (pack those bungees for your beach umbrella).  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the upper 60s with E-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... partly sunny/partly cloudy, temps in the low-70s with a 20-30% chance of showers throughout both the day and evening (just like every Labor Day).  Tuesday's looking 5-Star!  As for hurricane Dorian with its focus on the US coast, we'll be feeling the effects by the end of the week with major rain and winds (probably by Friday).
High tide: 10:12AM
Low tide: 4:08PM
Ocean temp: 73°
Sunset: 7:32PM
UV Index: 8-9 (high)
Rip Current: Moderate (very strong current. stay near a lifeguard when hitting the drink)
