It's The Summer Solstice!

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's Summer!  Today's the Summer Solstice... the longest day of the year... 15 hours long!  Ms Sun will be reach the highest and most northernmost point in the sky (northern part of the globe) from the Equator.  It's when during the Earth's orbit, the earth's tilt and the north pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun (23.5°) resulting in the longest period of daylight and shortest night of the calendar year in the northern hemisphere. 
As for today's weather... it is currently clear and sunny (Ms Sun's up and shining brightly).  The sky is clear.  Breezes are barely there at 5-7mph out of the S-SE.  Expect a mix of clouds and sun today with high of 74°.  Breezes will be out of the S-SE at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy skies with 20% chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm as temps drop back down into the mid-60s with breezes out of the S-SE at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... same as today.  Tomorrow night... same as tonight.  Monday... same as the weekend. Happy Summer!!!
