Until We Meet Again June!

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  The Sun rose about a half hour ago and she's shining brightly over the island this last day of June.  There's barely a cloud or a breeze (N-NE at 2-4mph).  Humidity's 86% with a Dewpoint of 66°.  It's beautiful outside.  Expect sunny to partly sunny (some cloud cover today) skies with a stray shower and/or thunderstorm possible (20% chance).  High of 79° is in the forecast but I'm sure we'll get into the 80s.  Yesterday the forecast said mid-upper 80s and my porch thermometer registered 94° by mid-day.  Today's winds will be out of the E-NE and switch to the E-SE all at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with that 20% chance of a stray shower.  Low around 70° with SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... just about the same as today.  Well June, you were kind to us this year... near perfect weather this past month.  Who knows what 2021 June will look like?!

Pleasant Monday

Mornin'!  It's 80° in Wildwood NJ.  Dewpoint is 67° with humidity at 66%.  It's a bright, sunny morning and feels good outside.  I immediately thought "turn the ac off" but it's heading to near 90° so... it's staying on today.  But now, I'm thinking it's best to keep it on throughout this week and next (holiday) weekend even though there's no sign of a heat wave.  There is definitely a predictable scene of crowded, noisy, surroundings of people, dogs barking, all types of vehicles, car doors slamming repeatedly, motorcycles, fireworks, reciprocating saws, hours of hammering, weed-wackers, neighboring parties and boom boxes etc.   It's not only nice to have a sealed, dark, cool, home but comfortable place of peace and quiet.  Why not?  I mean I love to hear the seagulls as well as feel a sea breeze wafting through my house, but I can return to that again someday.
Expect plenty of sunshine today with temps in the upper 80s (yesterday it hit 91°).  Winds will be out of the W-NW at 9-11mph.  Tonight... clear, low near 70° and West winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... sunny with a few afternoon clouds.  Temps will lower... mid-upper 70s with 20% chance of an afternoon rain shower and/or thunderstorm.  Wednesday... a bit warmer as temps reach 80° with light breezes and chance of rain/thunderstorms in the afternoon.  The only day this week that doesn't look unsettled is Friday.  But it all remains to be seen.  If doing a beach day... take insect repellent and sunscreen as well as footwear (the sand will be scorching hot).

Last Sunday Of June (hard to believe)

Mornin'!  It's 74° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 86% with a Dewpoint of 70°. It feels warm and muggy.  Breezes are not even worth mentioning... Westerly at 1-3mph.  We have a string of clouds right along the horizon as Ms Sun's trying to rise and shine through.  She will succeed and it shouldn't be too much longer.  Expect plenty of sunshine today with a few clouds this last Sunday of June.  A stray shower and/or thunderstorm is possible (20% chance).  Temps will be in the mid-80s.  Yesterday we reached 91° and I wouldn't be surprised if we come close to that again.  Light breezes will eventually make their presence known out of the SW at 8-11mph.  Tonight... mostly clear with some clouds in the mix as temps drop down to the low-70s with Westerly breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... looks like a repeat of today with those Westerly breezes remaining on the weather menu.  Remember that insect repellent along with the sunscreen!

Unsettled Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 77° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 77% with a Dewpoint of 68°.  It's cloudy with winds out of the SW at 10-15mph.  Expect a mix of clouds and sunshine today with the sky becoming even cloudier this afternoon. There's a 20% chance of rain and/or thunderstorms throughout the day and 40% chance this evening.  Today's winds will be out of the S-SW at 10-20mph and temps with a high of 86°.  Tonight... scattered showers and/or thunderstorms early, temps dropping to low-70s with W-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow...  mostly unsettled as it looks like a repeat of today.  Oh and by the way, it's the first time this year my air-conditioner went on (before turning in last night). It wasn't so much the heat and humidity making it the deciding factor. It was the intense noise of the island as Wildwood's currently bursting at the seams with people, dogs and traffic. If I told you, you wouldn't believe me.  It's time to hunker down in some quiet and solace and step away from it all in my sealed up home.

Friday Loveliness

Mornin'!  It's 73° in sunny Wildwood NJ.  Humidity is 82% and it feels like 73°.  Breezes are light out of the W-NW at 7-9mph.  Expect plentiful sunshine today as temps reach the low-mid 80s and W-SW breezes will be about 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, low of 71°, winds out of the SW at 5-10mph along with a 20% chance of precipitation.  Tomorrow and Sunday... partly cloudy, high near 85° and SW breezes at 10-20mph.

Cloud Covered Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  We're currently under cloud cover as sunrise was over a half an hour ago. Breezes are light out of the SW at 4-6mph. Ms Sun is hidden at the moment and will most likely be grappling with cloud cover all day today.  It's looking like a mostly cloudy day with 30% chance of rain developing by this afternoon.  Temps will barely tap 80° with SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... widely scattered rain showers and/or thunderstorms (30% chance) with temps dropping into the mid-upper 60s and SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow's looking much sunnier with a high of 83° and West winds at 10-15mph.  The weekend's looking pretty decent but cloudier than first expected.  Temps will be in the low-80s with lovely island breezes.  A note about the West winds (due in tomorrow and Sunday)... always keep in mind if heading to the beach on a "west wind" day that more than likely you'll be a feast for the those pesky green-head flies.  Inevitably, the west winds carry them toward the coast and they're blood suckers.  Always carry some form of insect repellent to ward off these relentless, biting little creatures.  There's one good thing regarding these flies... they're big and "slow" and if you're focused and patient you can swat them (a rolled up magazine or newspaper works best) and end their insatiable appetite right then and there.

Happy Father's Day!


Mornin'!  It's 68° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy Father's Day... today's blog is for all of you!  Hope you all like "soup" as we're in it.  It's as foggy as it can get at the moment.  I can barely see across the street.  Everything's dripping and soaking wet.  Breezes are out of the SE at 4-5mph.  Expect fog becoming partly cloudy as Ms Sun burns off this fog/cloud intensity.  We'll definitely have sunshine in the mix today but who knows when and how much as it'll be partly cloudy today.  Temps will be in the mid-70s with S-SE breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, low of 66°, S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... intervals of clouds and sun, high of 77° and Southerly winds at 10-15mph.  Hope all you father's out there enjoy your day!

A Repeat Of Yesterday

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun rose above the ocean's horizon about an hour ago but the cloud cover is keeping her at bay.  No pun intended.  Breezes are out of the NE at 15-20mph.  It'll be a day much like yesterday down the Shore.  Plenty of clouds with those NE winds ramping up even more at 20-30mph.  High of 67°.  Tonight... 20% chance of precipitation with temps in the low-60s and E-NE winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... 50% chance of rain with those blustery winds added to the weather mix.  Thursday the same with 60% chance of rain.

Sun And Clouds And Wind

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and doing everything in her power to break on through the cloud cover along the horizon.  It's making for a beautiful sunrise... lots of coastal colors in the sky!  The island birds are happy.  One was in our birdbath when I first woke and looked out the window and another was in the porch hanging flower-fern basket (probably eyeing it up for a nest) and lest not forget the 3 seagulls across the street chattering away.  It's on the cool side this morning (great sleeping weather) with breezes out of the NE at 17-21mph.  Expect partly sunny with some cloudy skies today with stiff, blustery winds at 20-30mph out of the NE with temps just about tapping 70°.  Tonight... mostly cloudy and back down to the low 60s and still blustery with E-NE winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... a repeat of today... cloudy, cool and blustery.  In fact... I have not-so-good news if you're here on vacation reading this.  It's not great weather this upcoming week.  We're not going to see a beach day with warmer conditions (80° and sunny) until maybe Saturday.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are potential rainy days.  Back to today... there's a "High Risk of Rip Currents" posted which means swimming will be prohibited.  Entering the surf is discouraged due to these dangerous currents.  If caught in a rip current... you're encouraged to relax and float.  Swimming against the current is pointless. Swimming or floating parallel to the shoreline until the pull of the current fades away, then swimming to shore is the solution.  If unable to escape, face the Shore and wave for help.

Flag Day!

Mornin'!  It's 61° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy Flag Day!  No air conditioners humming outside this morning!  Seems like the last few days, everyone checking in (every house in my immediate surrounding area was dark and uninhabited on Thursday and is now full of folk) to their shore homes or vacation rentals turned their air conditioners on once they arrived.  No one opened their windows for that lovely sea air.  Hubby and I don't get it as it truly hasn't been warm enough to warrant closing up the house,  turning the AC on and shutting out the Wildwood world yet .  The sea breeze has been too fantastic and intoxicating.  Who would want to close the windows on that breeze?
Anyway, it's cool (a bit chilly in fact) in the house as a NE breeze at 15-20mph is wifting (wafting) in my windows at the moment and is feeling really nice.  Ms Sun's up and everything's getting a good dose of sunshine as well!  Other than the seagulls making their presence known, it's quiet... no air conditioners on anywhere!  I think everyone got the memo!
It'll be a windy beauty today as Spring winds down.  The Flags will be flying with E-NE breezes at 15-25mph with plentiful sunshine.  Tonight... mainly clear, low of 61° and winds out of the E-NE at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... even windier (NE 20-30mph) as clouds begin to cover the island.

Beginning Of A Nice Stretch Of Weather

Mornin'!  It's 70° in Wildwood NJ.  The storms have passed and with those tropical, torrential rains yesterday and last night, we're been watered, washed down and refreshed nicely here on the island.  It's lovely outside with clear, blue skies and sunshine along with light breezes out of the N-NW at 4-6mph.  It'll be lovely today with plenty of sunshine, temps tapping 80° and W-NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, low of 63° and SW winds in the late afternoon switching to the N-NW at 10-15mph for this evening.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny with a little bit cooler temps... low 70s and a bit breezier with E-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday... it's looking like a repeat of Saturday with no rain in sight as previously forecasted.  Speaking of "forecast"... the upcoming week has rain on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Just saying.

Looking Rainy Today

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy with Ms Sun up and trying to get through the cloud cover.  We'll probably see plenty peeks of her this morning.  It's windy... S-SW at 20-25mph +gusting.  It's been windy since early yesterday afternoon.  It's almost like March rearing its ugly self it's so relentless and annoying.  It'll be windy all day today with S-SW winds at 20-30mph.  Expect mostly cloudy, blustery conditions with rain in the forecast (90% chance) by early this afternoon.  There's a possibility of local heavy rainfall. Rainfall could near a quarter of an inch.

Another "Good-looking" Day!

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It's perfection outside.  The sky is blue.  Ms Sun's shining brightly.  Breezes are light out of the SW at 3-5mph.  It'll be another good-looking day with abundant sunshine, high of 76° and S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... a few passing clouds, otherwise generally clear with temps in the upper 60s and S-SW breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy with gusty winds. Thursday looks rainy.  Better to get your beach day in today.  Speaking of "beach", I got my official first beach day in yesterday and it was wonderful.  I even dipped my feet in the 64° ocean and it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be.  I still won't dip my entire body in yet!

D-Day!

Mornin'!  It's D-Day... the largest seaborne invasion in History as Allied Forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy.  We remember those that served today.   It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Breeze are barely there at 5-7mph out of the W-SW.  It's mostly cloudy as Ms Sun didn't have a chance to shine through this morning's heavy cloud cover, but she's certainly trying her best; her brightness coming through as the sky begins to illuminate just about the horizon.  We're going to have a mix of clouds and sunshine today as temps just about tap 80°.  Winds will continue to be out of the W-SW at 10-15mph  There's a 20% chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm.  Tonight... mostly clear with some clouds this evening into the overnight.  Low around 65° and N-NW winds at 5-10mph. You might be able to catch the leftover Moonrise tonight. Tomorrow... sunny, mid-70s and lighter winds.

Full Moon Friday

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ. The seagulls are laughing loudly across the street as all the other island birds are chirping everywhere happily as well. It's cloudy and breezy. Winds are out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.  The cloud cover is making the sky look amazing actually... lots of grayness colored with pastels and soft hues.  It's not looking too great in the weather department today.  Expect sunny conditions for the start of the day with clouds coming in off and on as well at the day progresses.  There's a 40% chance of afternoon showers and/or thunderstorms.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 70s with S-SW winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... 80% chance of rain and scattered thunderstorms (more towards the overnight) with temps dropping into the mid-upper 60s and those S-SW winds staying checked in at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... looking good.  High of 81° with sunshine with West winds... 10-15mph.  Don't forget about those West winds... they always bring those green head biting flies which got me good yesterday as I got my first bite in the back of my leg.  Ouch!  I got the sucker though!  It's the Full Moon today so try to keep in mind those high tides and waters that have started seeping into the streets yesterday.  Don't drive through the corrosive tide or flood waters!  Oh... the weekend's looking nice with partly sunny skies tomorrow and mostly sunny skies on Sunday.  Tomorrow looks much warmer than Sunday too.  Happy Friday!

A Bit More Comfortable Than Yesterday

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 92%.  It feels warm and sticky outside.  It's clear as Ms Sun just rose over the horizon.  It's aromatic with the thick smell of marsh and wetlands which has also seeped into my house.  It's still with hardly a breeze out of the W-NW at 2-3mph.  It'll be a bit cooler than yesterday (we hit 86° yesterday) with temps in the mid-upper 70s and W-SW breezes shifting to the S-SE all at 10-15mph.  Tonight... scattered thunderstorms in the evening (40% chance) along with partly cloudy skies.  It'll get down to around 67° again with S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy with a stray afternoon thunderstorm possible and warmish... mid-upper 70s.  Winds will be blustery tomorrow.  And, speaking of tomorrow... it's the Full Moon and you may be able to catch a moon rise today or tomorrow.

IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE: It's looking more and more like we're going to have some intense stormy weather tonight around 9-10PM.  High Tide is 7:30PM (8:30PM on the back bay/marsh area) and since it's almost a Full Moon, expect tidal flooding from the tides plus add to that the torrential rains this storm is bringing.  It could be a fast moving storm but a dangerous one (winds, thunder and lightning).  Take note to where your vehicle is parked (move it if in low-lying areas prone to flooding) and hunker down... umbrellas down, furniture secured, trash cans secured, planters etc... all secured.

Unsettled Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's at 73%.  We've got weather happening around us at the moment with partly cloudy / partly sunny skies. Ms Sun is doing all that she can to shine through to brighten and paint the dark storm clouds surrounding us. The winds add to the weather excitement this morning out of the W-SW at 17-22mph.  It appears like the sky will open any minute and begin pouring.  Expect partly cloudy / partly sunny skies today with a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms this morning.  These rain clouds should clear out later this morning. Temps are heading into the low-mid 80s today!  According to my blog, the last time we had the temperature get into the 80s was September 11th.   Speaking of dates... I forgot to mention that Hurricane Season began on June 1st (it ends November 1st).  The W-SW winds at 10-20mph +gusting will stay checked all day until this evening.  Tonight... mostly cloudy skies, scattered thunderstorms (50% chance) this evening (a few storms could be severe) with temps dropping to the upper 60s / low 70s and West winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... partly sunny, temps tapping 80° along with a stray thunderstorm possible.  As for the weekend...  Saturday appears unsettled with chance of scattered thunderstorms on the weather menu and Sunday... lovely with plenty of sunshine and temps in the 70s.  Oh... the Full Moon is this Friday so expect much higher than normal tides already in the making.
