"The Winter Solstice" - The Official First Day of Winter

Mornin'! It's 48° in blustery Wildwood.  It's the last day of Autumn as Winter officially arrives tonight right before midnight.  So, enjoy this last day of Fall although it is officially the Winter Solstice.  By the way...daylight begins to grow longer beginning today.  It's currently still dark but clear and starlit with winds stiff and stirring things up out there.  It'll be blustery and gray according to every forecast I've checked.  Temps will get up into the mid-upper 50s with winds out of the S-SW at 22-35mph. We might see peeks of sun mainly early in the day as clouds will dominate the skies beginning later this afternoon.  Tonight...cloudy with a 10% chance of a spritz and breezes pounding the coast from the S-SW at 18-27mph.  I hate to be the bearer of bad weather tidings but it looks a chance of rain all week long in each day's forecast (tomorrow and Wednesday taking the biggest hit of a washout).  Christmas Eve and Christmas look wet but with a less of a chance than mid-week. Speaking of Christmas Day...Full Moon day!
High tide:4:16p.m.
Low tide:10:08a.m.
Ocean temp:53°
Full Moon: Dec. 25th
