Another Very Hot One

Mornin'!  It's 79° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 90% with a Dewpoint of 76°.  Breezes are barely there out of the W-NW at 2-3mph.   It's thick outside. Ms Sun just broke through some morning cloud cover and has begun the simmer for today.  Expect another "take your breath away" hot one today.  Temps will be in the mid-90s with abundant sunshine.  Yesterday's heat index hit 104° (what it actually feels like).  Winds will be out of the West again at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, low 70s and winds light and variable.  There's a 10% chance of a passing shower and/or thunderstorm throughout the day or night but 10% isn't anything to worry about.  Tomorrow... a mix of clouds and sun with more heat wave temps (mid-90s).  I did go to the beach yesterday morning for a few hours and the flies were biting as the West winds bring them to the beach every time.  Remember to pack the insect repellent.  Also, once again I witnessed (and it's mind-blowing each and every time) people including children with nothing on their feet.  The beach sand is excessively hot and to see these folks try to traverse across some areas of a couple blocks long is painful to watch.  I'll never understand it; it's sad.  This coming weekend looks "eh" as there's a mix of weather up ahead.  Saturday looks pretty good with a mix of clouds and sun and warm temps but Sunday has a "mostly cloudy - 40% chance of rain" in the forecast.  Remains to be seen as weather changes all the time.  There is a storm warning with tropical storm conditions in the Caribbean that could possibly be heading to the US... Tropcial Storm Isaias could impact Florida by the weekend.
