Much Cooler Weather / Partly Sunny / Partly Cloudy

Mornin'!  It's 57° in Wildwood NJ.  Our temps here haven't been in the 50s since the last week of May.  Since I left most of the windows opened last night, it's a wee-bit chilly in the house this morning.  There's no doubt that Autumn's giving us a sneak preview which is a week from today!  The humidity's 73% with a dewpoint of 47° and we're under cloud cover at the moment.  Winds are stiff... out of the N-NE at 16-22mph.  These morning clouds are supposed to break apart and allow Ms Sun through off and on today.  Expect partly sunny / partly cloudy conditions with temps barely tapping 70° and NE winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... clear to partly cloudy with temps heading into the upper 50s again.  Winds will have simmered down out of the East at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... almost a repeat of today with sun and clouds, much less in the wind department and warmer... mid-70s.  One thing I must mention is the rip currents.   There's an alert-warning posted as the surf is in the danger zone due to these currents.  Entering the surf is discouraged.  These currents are life-threatening and can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water holding their grasp.   Also, the "New Moon" is Thursday and you may notice the high tides are much higher than normal.  Be aware if in a low-lying area on the island.  The tide water does seep onto the streets... rain or shine.
