See ya June!

Mornin'! It's hard to believe June's biding adieu today. Time sure flies when you're having fun. How can you not have fun when you live at the Shore? There will be plenty of fun at the Shore this upcoming Holiday weekend. I'm lining up all the fun possibilities as everything will be in the mix. That could even be some dancing as the ol' knee is finally beginning to really feel better as I just past the 2 month mark since knee surgery. June ends with a perfect summer day as it's starting out with the Sun coming over the cloudless horizon and temperature at 69°. Temps will be seasonal in the lo-mid 80's with low humidity and a W-NW breeze at 10-15mph. It'll be sunny all day. It'll be a perfect day at the Shore! Outside fun today? can count on it. High tide:7:28a.m.; Low tide:1:12p.m.; Ocean temp: 76°; Sunset: 8:28p.m.

Summery Hump Day

Mornin'! It's 74°, cloudy and breezy (westerly winds at 10-18mph) this summer morning. The breeze will shift later coming off the sea. The clouds aren't allowing the Sun to do its grand entrance first thing this morning, but it's coming. It'll be sunny today with temps going into the low-mid 80's. Humidity's 89% but lower than yesterday. Should feel more comfortable today and tomorrow before the next round of heavy, humid, heat pays our island a visit just in time for the holiday. So far, the weekend is looking A-OK, albeit warm. High tide:7:01p.m.; Low tide:12:27p.m.; Ocean Temp: 75°; Sunset:8:28p.m. Summery hump day = Beach day!

Yet another Mix.

Mornin'! It's 74° in Wildwood as the sun's breaking on through. Beginning at dawn...skies were foggy and overcast, but the sun's finally showing it's big ol' self as the clouds are making way. We're going to see a mix of sun and clouds again today. As the forecasters are calling it..."Partly Sunny/Cloudy" day. Speaking of clouds, there will be clouds hanging around mostly all day bringing in some scattered showers and/or thunderstorms (sometime this afternoon)...40% chance. It's going to be warm and humid with temps going into the mid-80's and humidity near 80%. Winds are null as I blog but later will waft in from the SE at 10-15mph. High tide:6:18p.m.; Low tide:1:14a.m.; Ocean temp:75°; Sunset:8:29p.m. My guess would be NOT a total washout and perhaps a partial beach day. I'd go for it.

Monday Mix

Mornin'! It's 74° this gray, still, Monday morning in Wildwood. No sun to see rising in the East this morning. There's a 40% chance of a rain showers throughout the day today, but won't be a total washout as the sun will be peeking through the clouds every chance it can get. Temps will rise to the lo-mid 80's; humidity will remain on the low side. Winds will be out of the West at 10mph and shift to the SE bringing a cooler seabreeze a little later. Beach day? For the diehards...go for it. For the others...perhaps a stroll on the beach? Or better yet...a trip to The Mall! High tide: 5:34p.m.; Low tide: 10:55a.m.; Ocean temp...same as the air temp...74°; Sunset: 8:28p.m.

Seasonable Sunday

Mornin'! It's 73°. That's both the air temp and ocean temp btw. Sun's up and it'll be a seasonably warm Sunday as temps will be around the mid-80's; with fairly low humidity but humid just the same. Breeze is minimal coming from the NW at 5mph. That'll shift later and come from the sea making it feel more cooler and comfortable. Forecasters are saying partly sunny today (20% chance of a shower later). I'm saying 'beach day". High tide:4:47p.m.; Low tide: 10:08a.m.; sunset this evening: 8:28p.m.

A Nice One!

Mornin'! Looking like a nice weekend. It's a balmy 75° in Wildwood this morning. The sun and clouds are up in the big blue greeting the day. It'll be mostly sunny with those clouds passing throughout the day today. Temps are heading into the mid-upper 80's with much less humidity. There's a very minimal chance (10%) of a shower passing through later today as well. Breezes are out of the W-NW at 8mph and will continue to waft over the island from the West and by late this afternoon will shift as the seabreeze kicks in. You know the drill. Looking like a nice one for the island's weekend events...not to mention a pork, broccoli rabe and provolone sandwich at the Italian Fest, or simply a nice beach day, or perhaps a day on the boat (take's Operation Dry Water weekend...the USCG is on guard for BUI's), or maybe even an indoctrination to Elkdom! Congrats Joe! High tide: 3:44p.m.; Low tide: 9:22a.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:28p.m.

Hazy, Hot and Humid

Mornin'! It's 72° this morning as the sun rises in Wildwood. Breeze is at a minimum at 3mph coming from the SSW. They'll stay out of the SSW most of the breeze...warm breeze. It'll be hazy, hot and humid at the shore. Temps are heading into the mid-80's as humidity's climbing (87%). Chance of thunderstorm later today is 40%. High tide: 3:07p.m.; Low tide:8:36a.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset time: 8:28p.m. Congrats to the Mibsters who won the Marble Championship this summer. All the "Beach-goers", "Beach Blast Soccer" folk or "North Wildwood Italian Fest revelers"...enjoy the outdoors today but keep an eye on the sky.

More Mix

Mornin'! It's a balmy, tropical 74° in the early, morning stillness. Birds have begun to chirp as the skies begin to lighten and a tiny breeze blows out of the South at 5-9mph. The skies are also a bit cloudy and hazy and could hamper today's sunrise. It's going to be hazy, hot and humid (humidity's up to 89%) as temps rise to the mid-upper 80's. By the way, some of the haze we've been experiencing as of late is actual smoke wafting up the eastern coast from the North Carolina Forest Fires. I thought it was a bit muggy out for anyone to be firing up their chiminea as it was definitely smokey outside yesterday and last night. There will be a mix of sun and clouds today with more dry than wet but a 50% chance of a scattered thunderstorm is in that mix all day. This "Mix" could stick around as the forecast for the next 2 days looks like a "ditto" from yesterday and today into tomorrow and Saturday. Winds will be out of the S-SW at 10-15mph. High tide:2:15p.m.; Low Tide:7:51a.m.; Ocean temp:72°; Sunset:8:28p.m. Beach day? I'd say go for it, just keep an eye on the sky. That goes for all you Mibsters in the National Marbles tournament and who competing on the beach. Good luck to you!

Hump Day Mix

Mornin'! It's 69° in Wildwood as daybreak develops under thick cloud cover. Woke up to Thunder and Lightning around 4 this morning. Nothing came of it though other than some loss of sleep. It's now quiet except for the sound of the surf pounding and birds chirping. The "Mix" today is a "Dry and Wet" day as there's a 60% chance of showers and/or thunderstorms all day into this evening. Some storms hitting the island today could be severe. You've been warned. Another "Mix" is the possibility of peeks of Sun along with Cloud cover throughout the day right into late this afternoon. Humidity's 82%. Temps will hit the upper 70's-low 80's and if the humidity stays up there and the sun pops out = "a very warm day". Winds are minimal out of the S-SE at 5mph and will pick up later at 10-15mph and will stay a "seabreeze" throughout the day. High tide:1:24p.m.; Low tide:7:32p.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:28p.m. I think that about covers it. Beach day??? That's your call, but prepare accordingly and keep an eye on the sky as the Mix hangs around today and possibly tomorrow and Friday as well.

Summer has arrived!

Mornin'! It's the first official day of Summer; the Summer solstice. It's when the sun reaches the highest position in the sky; when the earth and moon's axial tilt is most inclined towards the Sun; it's the longest day of the year and it officially begins at 1:16p.m. this afternoon. Beginning today the days begin to grow just a tad shorter...sunrise a tad earlier each evening. It's currently 67° in Wildwood and temps will head into the mid-upper 70's with an increase in humidity at 81%. The sun's replicating the exact show it put on yesterday for sunrise. It's almost completely obscured with clouds as its trying with all its might to rise and shine, all the while painting those clouds with the prettiest pastel colors. No breeze to speak of but it's coming later out of the SW at 10-15mph and somehow the heavy backbay fragrance is seeping in the porch windows while the gulls are laughing their butts off at something out there. Today will be the last of the so-so days this week as rain and/or chance of rain is unlikely but will be hanging over our heads as the chance is 30% and the remainder of the week right into the weekend percentage gets a bit higher each day. Get out and enjoy while the gettin's good. High tide:12:34p.m. (like that number); Low tide:6:37p.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset:8:28p.m.; 94 days until Autumn!

Last Day of Spring! C'est La Vie!

Mornin'! It is what it is...the last day of Spring. Tomorrow afternoon, we'll be welcoming in the longest day of the year...Summer Solstice of 2011. Looks like we made it. (Barry Manilow?) It's currently 70° in WW this slightly overcast and lightly breezy start of the day. The sun's trying in the worst way to make its presence known, but there's a handful of clouds holding it back. I just heard it's raining in Delaware and those showers could be heading right over the Bay right toward WW this morning with a 50% chance of the island getting a little watering. With that said, if we do experience some showers and/or thunderstorms this morning, it should clear up for a decent beach day by late morning/early afternoon. By then the temps will get into the mid-upper 70's and the seabreeze coming from the East at 10-15mph will make for a nice day at the Shore. High tide:11:46a.m.; Low tide:5:46p.m.; Ocean temp:73°; Sunset:8:28p.m.

Happy Father's Day!

Mornin'! Happy Father's Day! You know who you are and here's wishing you all enjoy your day. I've always felt that Father's Day was the true kick off to summer. I know that I have a strong sense of my Dad's spirit ever since I've moved by the sea. He so enjoyed the peace and serenity the seashore fed to his spirit and I completely get it. I feel ya Dad and this one's for's 70° in WW this warm, humid, still, hazy/overcast, fragrant morning. Humidity's at 87% as we're still a bit on the sticky side. No breeze to speak of although there's currently a very slight one out of the NNE @ 6mph. Temps will get into the mid-80's with a Northeasterly breeze at 11-15mph later. It'll be partly sunny today with a 30% chance of an isolated Thunderstorm here and there. It's gonna be a hit or miss with sun and clouds all through the day. High tide 11:02a.m.; Low tide:4:53p.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:27p.m. One day till Summer! Love ya Dad!

An Old Friend. A New Blog.

The Better Half

Mornin'! It's 71° in WW this early Saturday morn. We're heading into the "sticky" region as temps go into the mid-80's today and humidity starts "sticking" around. It'll the better half of the weekend as we'll see more blue skies and sun than tomorrow. However, the clouds will play a part in today's weather and make for a partly cloudy day at the Seashore. No rain is forecasted until the overnight and tomorrow. A West-Southwest breeze at 10-15mph will hang around all day as well. High tide:10:11a.m.; Low tide:4:07p.m.; Ocean temp:73°; Sunset:8:27p.m.; 2 days until Summer! My bets are on a decent beach day. Even better...a day on the boat. Or, even better...some fishin' or crabbin'...could be a good day to dig out the crab pot!

Mixed Bag

Mornin'! It's going be a mixed bag on the island today. It's 69° in WW this morning. It's dreary. It's cloudy. It's breezy (Southery breezes 10-15mph). It'll be mostly cloudy with the sun peeking through here and there today as temps get into the mid-upper 70's with a 50% chance of rain showers and/or thunderstorms throughout the day into this evening. Breezes will pick up a bit and head in from the S-SW later. High tide: 9:22a.m.; Low tide: 3:19p.m.; Ocean Temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:27p.m. Summer's arriving in 3 more days! Oh...I wanted to'll be a beauty in Wildwood tomorrow...Beach Day!!!!

Sun; Clouds; Thunderstorms

Mornin'! It's 67° in WW this beautiful, early morn. The Sun just peeked over the horizon and what an incredible sunrise this morning. A bit of a "red sky" along with it. And, I'm not talking "Cafe" so take heed sailors. It's gonna head into the mid 70's again today with a S-SW breeze at 10-15mph. After we enjoy a mostly sunny morning, clouds will gradually appear throughout the day and by late this afternoon/early evening, the clouds will thicken and a 40% chance of rain is forecasted as we could see rain and/or thunderstorms throughout the night. High tide:8:33a.m.; Low tide:2:29p.m.; Ocean Temp:72°; sunset: 8:26p.m.; moonrise:9:21p.m. Tomorrow almost seems like a repeat of today and the weekend's looking like beach days are ahead. 4 days until Summer!

Hump Day Full Moon

Mornin'! It's...get this...57° in Wildwood this early, sunny morn. Beautiful start of the day. I'm lovin' this weather. Temps will rise into the mid-upper 70's as the weather remains other words "more comfortable" and "the way it should feel this time of year". The sun just rose as it will be mostly sunny today with blue skies and light breezes out of the Northwest at 10-15mph. The air will shift in the afternoon as it usually does coming from the South making for a light, cooler seabreeze wafting over the island. Just lovely at the Shore today. I'm smiling. Okay, here's today's Stats: high tide: 7:42a.m. and again tonight at 7:59p.m.(pay close attention to this one as it will create tidal flooding); Low tide: 1:39p.m.; Ocean Temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:26p.m.; Moonrise tonight: 8:32p.m. You could probably catch the Sunset as well as the Moonrise together in Cape May, NJ tonight. Last evening, I got to see that Moon rise over the ocean...what a spectacular thing to see! If you do venture out this evening...remember the tidal flooding caused by the Full's salt water filling the Streets. You've been forewarned. 5 days until Summer!

Flag Day!

Mornin'! And, another lovely one it is. It's 64° in Wildwood this perfectly still, cool, quiet, fragrant morning at the Seashore. All windows are open as the cool air barely moves the hems of the window curtains. After watering the gardens this morning, I placed the Flag outside in the window ledge holder in honor of its day and it's barely moving due to the stillness in the air. Less than a week away is officially Summer as it's coming really fast now. Talk about coming fast...the next Full moon is tomorrow, yet we're already feeling its affects by it's brightness and tidal aware that tonight's high tide will be excessive flooding due to the draw of the Full Moon along with an onshore breeze. Don't drive through flood's corrosive salt water and very damaging to your vehicle! Today's weather will be mostly sun with a mix of clouds later and we may even see a pop-up shower this afternoon. Temps will stay moderate at 70-75°. Breezes will be out of the N-NE at 10-15mph. High tide: 7:15p.m.; Low tide:12:46p.m.; Ocean temp:73°; Sunset: 8:26p.m.; Moonrise: 7:34p.m.; 6 days until Summer. If only Summer would stay exactly like today...ahhh!

More Seasonable Feel

Mornin'! It's 69° in Wildwood this overcast, hazy, quiet and just a tad breezy morning. It'll be mostly sunny today with a more seasonable feel to it today as temps get into the mid-upper 70's. Humidity's down too and it'll feel much more comfortable at the Shore. Winds will be out of the North at 10-15mph. The decision to give the airconditioner a little rest was an easy one as all windows are back open! One more week until Summer even though it's been giving us some serious sneak previews as of late.High tide:6:24p.m.; Low tide:11:53a.m.; Ocean Temp: 72°; Sunset: 8:25p.m.

Sunday, June 12, 2011

Repeat of Yesterday

Mornin'! Happy Sunday! It's 71° in WW this sunny, mild, very still, and still humid morning. No breeze to speak of but a lovely morning just the same, not to mention a lovely sunrise. The gulls laughing in the distance seem to be saying so. Today will be a repeat of yesterday. Warm, humid, overcast at times, sunny at times. Temps will be in the lo-mid 80's, not too breezy (8-10mph coming out of the S-SW) with 60% chance of shower/and-or/thunderstorms this afternoon. High tide:5:29p.m.; Low tide:10:57a.m.; Ocean temp: 73°; Sunset: 8:25p.m.; 8 more days until Summer. Just saying.

Alot Going On Today

Mornin'! Check it out...the weekend happenings in Wildwood: American Legion Convention (Parade this afternoon), Masonic Lodge Youth Group Convention, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxillary Convention and lets not forget it's Mummers Brigade Weekend (featuring the top winners of the Philadelphia Mummers Day Parade)! Does it get any better than that??? By the way, the Mummers Parade kicks off at 4:45p.m. today at 2nd and Old New Jersey Ave. so I'd be getting your strutting flipflops polished! Alot going on in the weather department too...It's currently 72° with some hefty fog covering the island this early morn with hardly a breeze out there. It's supposed to stay mostly cloudy and rather dreary looking today I'm sorry to say to all the above revelers who enjoy a sunny, cloudless sky at the Shore. But although mostly cloudy with possible periods of rain showers (60% chance), we'll see peeks of sun as well and it won't be a total gray day or washout. Temps will get into the mid-upper 70's with humidity sticking around. Breezes will be Easterly (seabreeze) at 10-15mph keeping that humidity at bay and making our lives more comfortable. High tide:4:29p.m.; Low tide: 10:00a.m.; Ocean Temp: 72°; Sunset: 8:24p.m.; 9 more days until Summer, although I think it sneaked in this past week.

The Heat's Backed off

Mornin'! TGIF! It's 72° in Wildwood as daybreak unfolds. The sunrise is trying its best to show it's lovely self but there's some major cloud cover on the horizon keeping that big orange ball at bay. Actually it's making for a unique sunrise as the gray, dark, clouds are being painted beautiful shades of orange and coral. Hit some record highs yesterday with that intense heatwave as Wildwood hit 95°. The Heat will back off today as temps will be in the mid-upper 80's thanks to some overnight enormous thunderstorms. I was on the back porch last night around midnight and could actually smell the electricity in the air during that storm. We even got some hail off of that badboy. Humidity's not backing down today as it's at 90% and will stick around (no pun intended). Today will have a mix of clouds and sun, although there's a 40% chance of rain or pop-up thunderstorms all day. Winds are "O" right now but will pick up from the North at 10mph later and Easterly (seabreeze) even later today. The weekend's looking much like the same as today with even greater chances of clouds and rains/thunderstorm (60%). Today's tides: High:3:32p.m.; Low:9:03a.m.; Ocean Temp: 72°; Sunset (if visible): 8:24p.m. Summer's still on its way in 10 more days...what a joke!

The Heat Is On

Mornin'! "The Heat Is On"...who was that? I was thinkin'...Kenny Loggins but it's Glenn Frey. It's 75° in Wildwood this calm, quiet, balmy, hazy, and very warm morning. The haze, heat and humidity will take us right into the evening. Temperatures could reach 95° feeling like 100° as the humidity 89%/dewpoint 71% is giving us a heat index; much like a chill factor but just the opposite; you know...what it actually feels like to our bodies. Hydrate like you've never drank before...water that is. Any breeze wafting this way will be minimal (10mph) out of the West (hot air) as there is a very slight possibility it could shift from the East (much more comfortable breeze) later this afternoon. It happened yesterday, so keep the faith in that ol' seabreeze. There's a 60% chance of a thunderstorm tonight too by the way. Need I say that the Beach is the place to be today? High tide:2:30p.m.; Low tide:8:06a.m.; Ocean temp:71°; Sunset: 8:23p.m. Should I even say how many more days until Summer? This is summer! Officially it's June 20th.

A "Repeat" of June 8, 2008

Mornin'! In the words of Marilyn Monroe..."We're having a Heatwave; a Tropical Heatwave." I was gonna go with Martha and the Vandella's but Marilyn came to mind first. Today's a repeat of 6/8/08 and the first of a 2-day near record highs. It's 70° as the sun's rising off the coast of Wildwood. It'll be hazy, hot and humid as temps rise as well into the 90's along the beaches. The W-SW breezes (land breeze) at 10-15mph will do nothing to cool us as we need the Easterly seabreeze to help with that and there's none coming our way anytime soon. Humidity's rising to 82% which will make it feel even hotter and stickier. Sweat is the only moisture we'll see and feel until tomorrow night when there's a possibility of a thunderstorm. High tide:1:28p.m.; Low tide:7:31p.m.; Ocean temp:70°; Sunset 8:23p.m.; 12 more days until summer. that's a joke, just wait until tomorrow!

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Dewy Tuesday

Mornin'! It's 66° in Wildwood this slightly breezey, sunny, bright, comfortable morning. Dew points will begun their climb today reaching 60 and by tomorrow...70. What's that mean? It means Humidity...high humidity is heading this way today as it will be sunny today and may reach the 80's. It's just the beginning as tomorrow will be warmer and Thursday...even warmer (near 90). We're entering our next heat wave as well as windows closed with central air on. Breezes today will be out of the W-SW at 10-15mph. Hopefully the breeze will shift this afternoon and come off the ocean, but no one's committing to that. Like I said...get out your Motown collection cause Martha and the Vandellas are up next. High tide: 12:23p.m.; Low tide: 6:26p.m.; Ocean temp: 69°; Sunset: 8:22p.m.; 13 days until Summer! 8 days until the Full Moon!

Good Monday

Mornin'! It looks like a pretty "Good Monday". It's currently 66° with low humidity and some minimal cloud cover (the sunrise shouldn't be affected this morning) and not a leaf moving on the trees. Temperature will remain seasonable as the thermometer barely rises up to the low-mid 70's. Seabreeze will tag along at 10mph out of the SE. There's a possibility of a stray shower in areas in South Jersey later's a hit or miss. Martha and the Vandellas will be coming to mind by Wednesday of this week as another Heat Wave is headed in this direction. High tide:11:34a.m.; Low tide 5:27p.m.; Ocean temp:68°; Sunset: 8:22p.m.

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Sunday Mix

Mornin'! It's 66° in Wildwood. It appeared that the sunrise would one-up the clouds this morning, but the clouds won out. The sky and horizon looked brilliant orange as the morning unfolded, but the gray took over and totally obscured the sun. So, it's a bit cool, cloudy, dry and still outside. Birds are chirping wildly. There's a hint of sea-aroma in the air. Temps will go to the low-70's. Showers are expected today...possibly a brief one as early as late this morning. The chances increase (30%) as the day progresses...even more so this evening. The forecasters are saying that it should be mainly dry and cloudy most of the day though...we'll just have to wait and see. We just may see peeks of sun. High tide:10:44a.m.; Low tide:4:33p.m.; Ocean temp:69°; Sunset time: 8:21p.m. (if there is one). 15 days until Summer and by the end of this upcoming week...we're going to have a nice taste of it!

Comfortable's Continuing

Mornin'. My heart breaks though for the family of 12 year old Abiah Jones who died from a fall off the Giant Ferris Wheel on our amusement pier yesterday. Many, many sad days ahead for her family and friends as prayers will flow their way for a long time to come. The weekend events will continue as usual along with continued comfortable weather. It's a cool 57° in Wildwood this early morning. Skies are clear as the sun's about to lift over the horizon. There's a slight 5-10mph NW breeze which will become a "seabreeze" later today. Mid-upper 70° temps will be the main part of keeping the island beautiful today. High clouds will roll in this evening and a shower during the night is a possibility. High tide:9:59a.m.; Low tide:3:45p.m.; Ocean temp:67°; Sunset: 8:20p.m.; 17 days until summer.

Friday, June 3, 2011


Mornin'! It's 55° lovely degrees this morning in Wildwood as the sun's rising faster than my fingers are typing. No cloud cover or not much of a breeze happening out there (5mph); but one will be coming a bit later from the N-NW at 10-15mph. Humidity is down as the temps will rise into the mid-high 70's again making for a continued pleasant and lovely day at the Shore. High tide: 9:17a.m.; Low tide:3:01p.m.; Ocean temp: 66°; Sunset:8:20p.m.; 18 days until Summer. BTW...Saturday's looking like a repeat of today; Sunday...not so much. Motocross on the beach this weekend not to mention the Elks convention is in town....parade begins at noon at 25th & Atlantic Aves. Wildwood's up and running!

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Another sneak peak of Summer today!

Mornin'! It's 73° in Wildwood this lovely, sunny, breezy, less humid morning. The only thing missing is a Rooster clucking (aka...morning sounds of Key West), but the Seagulls are making up for it. We're heading into an even more comfortable weather pattern if that's possible as it's been lovely here at the Shore. It'll be high near 80° today with a NW breeze at 15-20mph and we could see wind gusts of 25-30mph later this afternoon. Here's something good to report...these weather conditions may be sticking around throughout the entire weekend. High tide:8:36a.m.; Low tide:2:19p.m.; Ocean temp: 70°; Sunset: 8:19p.m.; 19 days until Summer!

June's arrived!

Mornin'! Yep...June's here. I don't mean Cleaver, Lockhardt or Carter either. While on the topic of names, here's this year's list of Hurricane names...and June isn't one of them...Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irene, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Phillipe, Rina, Sean, Tammy, Vince and Whitney. Today kicks off the very long Hurricane Season from June 1st to November 30th. There's none of that in today's forecast as it's lovely this morning...70° as a cool ocean breeze wafts in all the windows. It's very hazy, a bit foggy and decide. Not sure if we'll see a sunrise with the skies this hazy, but I'm sure the sun will have no problem burning it away once it up over the horizon. Speaking of's still going to be a warm, summer-like day as the forecast is hazy, hot and humid with temps reaching the mid 80's. Starting to get the tropical-Key West feel on the island. My Croton plant (I call it my Key West Plant as they're everywhere you look in the Keys)is now out on the porch and thriving perfectly. Breezes will hang around at 10-15mph out of the S-SW. A severe thunderstorm could possibly pass over the island later today (late afternoon/early evening). High tide: 7:55a.m.; Low tide:1:39p.m.; Ocean temp: 71°; Sunset:8:18p.m.; 20 days until Summer (the longest day of the year)!
