Winter's About To Pay A Visit to the East Coast

Mornin'!  It's 40° in Wildwood NJ.  It's breezy (NW at 15-20mph) and hazy as the moon and stars are barely visible through the milky cloud cover.  It's brisk out there this morning as the beginning of our first real preview of winter weather is about to occur.  It'll be mostly cloudy and cold today (there's a possibility of Ms Sun peeking through this morning) with breezes out of the W-NW at 7-10mph but the temps are going to drop (low-mid 30s).  By late this afternoon...50% chance of rain showers and by later tonight...Snow (yes..."snow"...I've said it) Showers.  There's a snowstorm out there with our coast in its sights! Tomorrow...snow all day into the overnight with minor accumulation although 2 forecasts reported 3-5"!  Personally, the ocean's still warm enough to keep the island insulated. The ground surface is warmer than the mainland and I think we'll see no more than a dusting to an inch (I'm saying that with my fingers crossed). Sunday...Ms Sun's back after a gray / snow flurry start but so are the cold, blustery winds - W-NW at 25-30mph.  13 days until the Winter Solstice, but we'll certainly have a sneak preview this weekend beginning tonight that's for sure!  I'm going with a fresh pot of homemade soup (Italian wedding) and Christmas cookie baking you couldn't have more perfect weather!
High tide: 11:37a.m.
Low tide:5:48p.m.
Ocean temp:53°
