Wind Advisories Posted

Mornin'!  It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  My have things changed in the weather department.  We have a "wind advisory" posted until almost Wednesday as winds have been howling over the island from the West at 25-35mph sustained with 50mph gusts!  It's been very noisy outside all throughout the night and this morning.  My little pooch has been unsettled to say the least for the last 12 hours. I think a little chihuahua must fear being swept up and blown out to sea with these bad boy winds.  Oh, add this morning's temps and those intense winds and we've got quite a brisk, cold, wintry morning down the shore  with a chill factor of 38°. There's some cloud cover which is moving quickly and allowing for the twinkling stars to sparkle here and there and I expect a lovely sunrise.  We're expecting the sun to shine today.  Those winds (N-NW 35-45mph +gusting) with temps in the mid-upper 40s will = a chill factor (30+ degrees throughout the day). By tonight...the clouds will blow back over us bringing with it the change of rain showers and/or get this..."snow" flurries.  Jeez...I hated typing the "s" word but it is what it is...just reporting what I've researched.   I'm surprised that while we're heading into the last week of November, Winter (30 days away) has just now started rearing it's creepy head. We've been very fortunate with this lovely weather as of late as Autumn's been holding her own here along the coast.  Here's a good thought...on December 21st...the days begin to grow longer again!
High tide:12:35p.m.
Low tide:6:48p.m.
Ocean temp:56°
