Partly Sunny Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 41° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  She rose about an hour ago (right before 7 o'clock) and we're now glowing with sunshine.  Breezes are out of the NE at 7-9.  It's crisp but lovely out there.  Very quiet.  We have plenty of visitors this weekend but it seems that everyone is isolating.  It was incredibly eerie late last night when stepping onto the back porch.  Everyone's house was lit up (not usual this time of year) but when you stood quietly and listened waiting for any sort of island sound... nothing; no vehicle noise, no distant talking, no sounds of the surf, no breeze... just total silence.  Also, as of late last night... over 1300 cases of the virus in New Jersey with 16 deaths.  God knows what the statistics are this morning.
For today's weather... we'll probably see more clouds than sunshine once those clouds check in probably early this afternoon.  Temps won't even tap 50° as the E-NE winds begin to ramp up and become blustery... 15-25mph added to that cloud cover... making it feel even chillier.  Tonight... rain's heading our way as there's an 90% chance of rain beginning after midnight.  Temps will drop into the low-40s with that East winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... more rain with temps tapping 50° and even gustier winds.  March has begun to ramp up again so forget the hairspray.
