High Impact Nor'easter Heading This Way

2010 - Christmas Week
Mornin'!  It's 34° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloudy skies at the moment with breezes out of the E-NE at 20-25mph.  Ms Sun's due up in a half hour but we won't be seeing or feeling her warmth today. A high impact Winter Storm is on its way as I type.  Rain and winds will be checking in early this afternoon.  Temps will get into the mid-upper 40s with E-NE winds at 25-35mph occasionally gusting to over 50mph.  Chance of rain is 100%.  No white stuff along the coast but tidal flooding is coming.  Tonight... winds and rainfall early... then remaining cloudy with showers overnight.  Low around 35°. Those Nor'easter winds (ENE) will be around until tomorrow afternoon.  West of us will be receiving snowfall especially the I95 corridor from  New England to New York City as well as Philadelphia and west of Philadelphia.  The Pocono Mountains could see up to 2 feet of snow.  Not here as the Coast will experience a major rain and wind event as well as coastal flooding and intense beach erosion.  This Storm will be checking out sometime early tomorrow (before daybreak) and leave in its wake a partly sunny, much less windy day with a high of 40°.  For the weekend, partly to mostly cloudy with a high of 40° with light winds.  Just a reminder that the streets in Wildwood will more than likely be flooding so be aware of traversing around as well as going on and off the island.  The foot of the George Redding bridge has been known to flood and temporarily close due to tidal flooding.  Be aware of tide times.  Know the low-lying areas along with safer high ground on the island as you may have to move your vehicle to higher ground.  Remember that high tides are an hour later on the back side of the island.   Be safe and smart and don't drive through flood waters.
