Beautiful Weather Continues

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's another beauty this morning.  Ms Sun's crossing the horizon as I type.  Breezes are light out of the SW at 2-4mph.  The island birds are awake and letting us all know that they're awake and happy.  It'll be another lovely day here along the coast.  Expect plenty of sunshine, high of 66° and Southerly breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear (some clouds in the mix) with a low of 52° and S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy (15% chance of rain in the afternoon) and a high of 65° with Southerly winds at 10-15mph.

A Perfect Friday Down The Shore

Mornin'!  It's 54° in Wildwood NJ.  I feel like a broken record with reporting the same weather morning after morning.  But, it is what it is... sunny and bright with hardly a breeze (W-NW at 2-3mph).  It's another perfect Spring morning down the Shore!  The island birds can vouch for me.  They are as loud and happy as you can be.  It'll be a sunny to partly sunny day with a high of 67° and SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, low of 53° and those SW breezes still checked in at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... more of the same (just a tad breezier) and Sunday... not quite as sunny with a very slight chance of a stray shower.  Temps will be sticking around where they are today with breezes back in the 5-10mph range.

Lots Of Loveliness

Mornin'!  It's 57° in Wildwood NJ.  Circumstances out of my control have made my blog a bit late this morning.  And, what a morning!  It's stunning!  Ms Sun's shining her warm rays over the island without a cloud in the sky!  Sea breezes are out of the North at 5-10mph.  The island birds are happily sounding off their pleasures.  The intermittent sound of the chimes on my back porch keep bringing "It's A Beautiful Morning" by the Rascals into my head.  It'll be a beauty today with abundant sunshine, high near 65° and S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, low of 51° and SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a repeat of today as it'll be sunny, 65° and light breezes again.  At this time, the weekend's looking fair to middling meaning Saturday's looking like today (sunny and warmish) and Sunday's looking cloudy and cooler.

Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up.  There's a few, light, wispy clouds in the sky.  Breezes are light out of the N-NW at 5-8mph.  It's going to be nice today.  Yesterday didn't have a cloud in the deep blue sky with hardly a breeze but today will.  Expect a partly sunny / partly cloudy day with temps in the mid-60s.  Breezes will develop into "winds" out of the W-NW at 10-20mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, temps down to 50° and simmered down breezes out of the N-NW at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... almost just like yesterday... deep blue, cloudless sky, mid-60s and much lighter breezes.  At this time, the weekend's looking like it's full of sunshine although late Saturday afternoon could cloud up and bring a rain shower.  I'll be keeping an eye on that one. I forgot to mention that the New Moon was yesterday as I noticed the tides were much higher than usual.  The Full Moon and New Moon always create fuller than normal tides.

Unsettled Morning - Mostly Sunny Afternoon - Clear Starlit Evening

Mornin'!  It's 60° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and trying to shine through some of those light, wispy, milking clouds.  Breezes are out of the W-NW at 10-15mph.  This cloud cover could thicken and provide a morning shower or two (chance of rain is 30%).  By this afternoon, a partly sunny day with a high of 63° and NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... mainly clear, low near 50° and N-NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny, high of 62° and N-NW winds shifting to the SW at 10-15mph.

Gray and Blustery Mother's Day

Mom, Granny (holding my first born) and Me
Mornin'! Happy Birthday to my daughter! There's no greater Mother's Day gift.  And, Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.  Today's blog is dedicated to all of you but especially my first born who has filled my life with joy.  It's 50° and a bit chilly in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the W-NW at 5-7mph.  It's partly cloudy with Ms Sun obscured at the moment.  She's trying to shine through it all, but hasn't made it yet.  Expect lots of cloudy sky this morning, then some clearing in the early afternoon and then back to cloud cover becoming thicker making for a mostly cloudy afternoon later.  Temps will get into the upper 50s with S-SW winds ramping up at 15-25mph.  Tonight... overcast, low of 56°, windy with S-SW winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... starting out cloudy with sunshine breaking through by the afternoon and a high of 64° with still blustery winds out of the W-NW at 15-25mph.

Saturday Mix

Today's Webcam Shot - North Wildwood

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and being challenged with some cumulus clouds.  One moment, the sunshine is blinding me coming through the front porch windows and the next moment a darkened scenario surrounds me. This is my blog space as I sit here at a desk giving weather reports every morning.  Cool island breezes are currently out of the W-NW at 10-15mph.  One window next to me is slightly cracked so I cannot only feel that chilly air, but hear those loud island birds.  We had a fantastic watering during the night. Everything's dry except for puddles here and there. All outdoor greenery... thirst is quenched!

Today's weather is all over the place.  It'll be partly sunny this morning, turning to mostly cloudy.  By afternoon, a few showers develop as the temps reach the upper 50s.  Winds... still out of the W-NW will ramp some at 10-20mph.  Chance of rain is 30%.  Tonight... around dinner time, clouds begin to roll out as temps begin dropping.  Then, later tonight it'll be clear with a barely a cloud in sight as temps drop into the upper 40s with some NW winds still making their presence known at 10-20mph.  For Mother's Day tomorrow, a mix of clouds and sun becoming cloudy late in the day.  Temps will tap 60° and it'll still be a bit blustery.  It's perfect "wind-breaker" weather!

Sunny Start - Cloudy Ending

Mornin'!  It's 50° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and calm (breezes are light out of the NE at 3-5mph).  It's a bit chilly, but quiet and lovely as the seagulls laugh throughout the neighborhoods.  It's a perfect Spring morning down the Shore if you ask me.  We have only 44 more days until Summer!  As for the weather, this perfectly lovely morning will begin to turn gray as clouds roll in.  Expect a partly cloudy morning, a mostly cloudy afternoon and a possibly rainy evening.  Today's temps... 60° with NE breezes beginning to shift to the East, then the E-SE, then SE by tonight's possible rainy period.  Breezes will be considerably light at 5-10mph.  Chance of rain tonight... 60%.  Tomorrow... overcast most of the day but with 50% chance of rain showers up until dinner time then Ms Sun makes her grand entrance along with some gusty winds; just in time for sunset.  Sunday... mostly cloudy with peeks of sunshine and a high of 58° with light winds. There's a 25% chance of rain showers Sunday night.  Rain is on the weather menu on Monday.

Cinco De Mayo

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  Happy Cinco De Mayo!  The 5th of May is a celebration of Mexican heritage commemorating the date of the Mexican army's victory over France at the battle of Puebla in 1862.  We're going to have a mix of weather today as we pop the Tequila. We're currently under partly cloudy / foggy skies but more so at the ocean side of the island as the marsh side has more breaks in the grayness.  Breezes are light out of the SW at 4-6mph.  Oh... we had a nice watering overnight as the plants, lawns, trees, flowers, veggies, herbs, birdbath and you name it... all watered nicely. For today, expect a mix of clouds and sun with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, high around 70° and Westerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Chance of showers is 50%.  Tonight... partly cloudy skies, low 50s and NW winds at 10-20mhp.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny  and cooler... low 60s with NW winds at 10-20mph. At this time, the weekend's looking cloud covered with showers here and there (Saturday morning and then again Sunday evening) but we all know that can change.

Partly Sunny

Mornin'!  It's 65° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining through some milky clouds.  Breezes are out of the West at 4-6mph.  The island birds are off the chart this morning.  They're loud and boisterous including the seagulls who woke me this morning with their squawking and laughing.  Sounds to me like they're very happy with this lovely start of the day.  It'll be a partly sunny (some cloud cover in the mix) Tuesday with temps in the upper 70s.  West winds are sticking around and ramping up at 10-20mph.  Tonight... thicker clouds take over as there's a 40% chance of rain and even scattered thunderstorms.  Temps will drop down to 60° with Southerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... unsettled with 50% chance of scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, high of 72° and W-SW winds at 10-20mph.

Morning Showers, Mostly Sunny Day, Mostly Cloudy Night

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  It's partly cloudy with the ocean side of the island looking clear and bright with Ms Sun shining and the bay (marsh) side looking dark and ominous with thick cloud cover. I'd say rain clouds are heading our way.  Breezes are out of the SW at 10-15mph.  These approaching, heavy clouds could provide a 30% chance of rain this morning.  After that, it'll be a sunny Sunday with temps in the low-mid 70s.  SW winds will be hanging around all day into tonight anywhere from 10-20mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, low around 57° with lighter winds still from the SW direction.  Tomorrow... mostly cloudy day with a chance of showers and/or thunderstorms in the afternoon (40% chance).  Temps will once again be in the 70° range with South winds at 10-20mph.

FOOTNOTE: It's 4:30PM and I just wanted to add to the blog for the record... it's been a gorgeous summer day here today.  It's been sunny since 8am this morning as the skies have those light, milky clouds overhead.. The winds have died down but are still light and refreshing.  The temperature is now 82° and I'd definitely call this one a "beach day".  A beautiful beach day.

May's Coming In Blustery And Chilly

Mornin'!  Welcome May!  It's 47° in Wildwood NJ.  Windchill is 40° due to the relentless, wind gales.  I feel like I should be welcoming March.  What a night with those winds!  Enough already.  There's a "Gale Warning" still in effect until around 10-11am this morning.  I'm happy to report that Ms Sun's up and shining on us.  I'm counting on her to begin today's warm-up.  It's clear but with a smattering of clouds being rapidly pushed out to sea as the winds out of the NW at 20-30mph +gusting are howling over the island again.  Expect a partly sunny day with strong winds this morning out of the W-NW at 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be in the low 60s.  Even with the sunshine, it'll feel like we're in the mid-50s due to the winds.  Batten down those items up for sale in today's Wildwood Crest Borough Yard Sale! Tonight... a few passing clouds, low of 54° and SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... calmer and warmer with sunshine, temps in the low-70s and SW winds at 10-20mph.  Monday... cloudy and still breezy with temps in the low-60s and rain in the evening.  We can only hope that May will settle things down in the wind department and those April showers have done there job bringing all those May flowers.  Happy May Day!

April's Bidding Adieu

This Morning's WebCam - North Wildwood
Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  There's a "gale warning" posted... "Mariners should remain in port, alter course and/or secure vessels for severe conditions".  This is how April's saying "farewell". We're currently under partly cloudy skies.  I'd say most of the cloud cover is over the ocean side of the island and blocking Ms Sun's rise yet making for a beautiful (breezy) start to the day.  The bay side... partly cloudy but the clouds are currently opening up and providing clear blue skies.  But, the main attraction this morning is the wind... it's windy as hell.  Winds are out of the W-NW at 25-30mph +gusting.  I woke to an incredibly huge bang which was one of my porch chairs being turned over by the winds.  The winds are howling... literally "howling" as they blow down the streets and over my house.  They're going to be howling all day and night into tomorrow afternoon.  Strap in and put the hairspray away.  It'll be a mostly sunny day with temps nothing like yesterday... we hit 83°.  Today... we'll be lucky to see 68°.  W-NW winds are staying checked in at 20-30mph +gusting.  Tonight... partly cloudy, low of 46° and W-NW at 25-35mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... sunny, high of 62° and W-NW winds at 20-30mph.  Sunday... partly sunny, temps around 70° and W-SW winds at 15-20mph.  Until next year April, see ya on the other side!

Mix Of Clouds And Sun

Mornin'!  It's 62° in Wildwood NJ.  Yes!  You can only imagine how the island birds are displaying their pleasure!  So much "bird happiness" in my neck of the "woods" with loud chirping, squawking, cawing, peeping etc.  It's so beautiful this morning and the birds are only enhancing the start to the day.  Ms Sun's shining through the milky clouds and the breeze is light out of the W-SW at 3-8mph.  It certainly won't be as warm as the mainland or Philly today (they're temps will be near 90°) but it'll be perfectly lovely and much cooler here down the Shore.  Expect a mix of clouds and sun with a high of 76°!  W-SW winds are also in the mix at 10-15mph.  By this afternoon, it'll be partly cloudy and by this evening, mostly cloudy.  Tonight's temps will be where they are now... low 60s.  SW winds will be ramping up at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy, upper 60s, SW winds at 10-20mph and 20% chance of rain by late in the day.  Friday... waking to rain, cloudy with gusty winds.  At this time, the weekend's looking sunny albeit cooler.  It'll be perfect, sunny weather Saturday for Wildwood Crest's Borough Wide Yard Sale!

Beautiful Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny and bright with light breezes out of the SE at 4-6mph.  Ms Sun crossed the horizon about a half hour ago.  A beauty is on tap with lots of sunshine, high of 68° and S-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Tonight, clouds roll in with clearing later in the evening.  Low around 57° and S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy in the morning, the partly cloudy in the afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-70s!  SW winds will be more blustery than today at 10-20mph.  Caught the moon rise last night and it didn't disappoint.  I'm always grateful to see it.  I'm not sure if we'll see it tonight due to cloud cover.  Remains to be seen!

Full "Pink" Moon

Mornin'!  It's 47° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's with us this morning.  She's been over the horizon for over a half an hour already.  Breezes are out of the NW at 15-20mph.  Birds are making their presence known again as they're chirping and tweeting and hooting and cawing and squawking and laughing and some would say "disturbing the peace".  I would say "bringing the sounds of Spring" to the quietness.  I love it.  It'll be a beauty today.  Expect plenty of sunshine, high of 60° with NW winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... a few passing clouds, low around 48° and NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... a few early clouds but another mostly sunny day with high in the mid-60s and not as blusterly with S-SE breezes at 10-15mph.  Friday looks like the next day for rain.  The Full Moon is today and we should be able to catch it rise without clouds interfering this evening.  It's known as the Pink Moon and will also be a spectacular supermoon!  There are two supermoons this year with the first occurring tonight and the second next month.  Supermoons are said to appear bigger (7%) and brighter (15%) than your average full moon as it is as close to the earth as it can be.  The reason this moon is "pink" is due to the time of year... when certain wildflowers, creeping pink phlox and moss pink phlox are all blooming.  The moon won't actually have any appearance of being pink but will begin rising with its usual gold color turning to bright white while gliding overhead.  It's time to howl!

Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  Wow, the seagulls are happy this morning.  They're screeching and cackling all around the neighborhood.  It's probably due to the Saturday night baths they all received. We had a steady, somewhat heavy rain all night long. Now, the rain seems to be out of here.  We had an excellent watering and are a big soggy at the moment but the dry out has begun.  It's currently cloudy with winds out of the N-NW at 15-20mph.  Today, expect cloudy skies in the morning, becoming partly cloudy this afternoon with a slight chance of a rain shower.  Temps will be in the low-60s with blustery winds out of the N-NW at 15-25mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with clouds giving way to clear skies overnight.  Temps will drop down into the mid-40s with NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday are all just about the same weather... partly sunny with temps in the low-60s.  The Full Moon is tomorrow and if lucky, we could see a moon rise tonight (only without the clouds interferring).

Last Weekend Of April

Mornin'!  It's 47° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got a beauty this morning with clear skies, light breezes out of the West at 4-7mph and Ms Sun just crossing the horizon as I'm typing away.  The gulls are all laughing and cackling in the neighborhood and the aroma of the briny sea is in the morning, crisp air.  It's just a perfect Spring morning down the Shore this start to the last weekend of April.  We're going to have a mix of clouds and sun this morning as clouds are due to roll in and completely take over the skies by afternoon.  Temps will get into the low 60s with SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... periods of rain will begin late as temps drop into the low-50s and winds shift from the SW to the SE at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... rain early, then a mix of clouds and sun as temps get up into the low-mid-60s.  Winds will be blustery out of the N-NW at 15-25mph.  Monday... sunny with temps in the low-60s and not as blustery as this weekend.  Oh, keep in mind that the full moon is Monday and you know the drill by now... the tides will be much higher than normal so be aware of low-lying areas as rainfall + full moon high tides = tidal flooding.  Know your high tide times and don't drive through flood waters as it's salt water and does cause damage to the undercarriage of vehicles.  There will be plenty of nice weather moments this weekend so get out and enjoy!  Happy Weekend!

A Breezy Beauty Is On Tap

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got Ms Sun up and shining down.  W-NW winds are still hanging out but "only" at 14-17mph.  It'll be a lovely, breezy Spring day down the Shore with plenty of sunshine, high near 60° and West winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... some clouds will give way to mainly clear skies overnight, low around 49° and W-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy in the morning giving way to cloudy skies by the afternoon, high near 60° and S-SW winds at 10-20mph. Tomorrow night... rainy (50-70% chance) and windy.  Sunday... rain (100% chance) in the first half of the day and still breezy with Ms Sun checking in by late afternoon with temps still in that 60° range.

Earth Day

Mornin'!  Happy Earth Day!  It's 39° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear.  Ms Sun's up (thank goodness). Winds are out of the W-NW at 20-25mph +gusting making a windchill of 29°.  Winter has returned!  It feels brutal with those whipping, biting winds.  I covered outdoor young plants as well as filled the laundry room with more plants before turning in last night. I think we'll be alright especially with Ms Sun warming us.  We're supposed to get temps into the low-mid 50s today but those relentless, annoying, cold winds out of the W-NW are staying checked in at 20-30mph +gusting making it feel colder than it is.  Tonight... clear to partly cloudy with temps in the low-40s and W-NW still hanging around at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... sunny with a few afternoon clouds and a high near 60° and West winds at 15-25mph.  As for this weekend... Saturday starts out partly clear becoming overcast by afternoon and periods of rain by evening.  Some rainfall could be heavy.  Sunday... morning rain becoming cloudy by the afternoon and clear by evening.  Take time today to think about this beautiful world we share and perhaps do something to help Mother Earth along.  Something like begin using reusable bags, bottles, straws etc.  Or, plant a tree.  Or walk around your property or neighborhood and collect trash.  Living on an island and seeing relentless trash and/or plastics knowing they're eventually headed for the ocean or bay is so frustrating and sad.  I truly do my best to collect what I can.  Today's the day (especially with these winds) to pick up anything you see littering the earth.

Gale Warnings Posted This Evening Until Tomorrow Evening

Today's Webcam Shot - North Wildwood

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under clear, dawn skies with breezes out of the S-SW at 15-20mph.  There's a thin line of clouds along the horizon as Ms Sun's about to present herself and paint the sky as only she can do.  It's one of those stunning Spring mornings down the Shore.  It's on the chilly, breezy side but it's all about that salty, briny air, the island birds loudly displaying their happiness and of course Ms Sun.  Regrettably it's all going to change for a short period of time beginning later this afternoon.  Today's weather has many layers.  First, this glorious morning with temps rising into the low 60s this afternoon; then, gusty winds enter the scene.  Storms are due in this afternoon as well as some may contain thunder, lightning, hail and gusty winds (gusts out of the SW) of up to 35mph. Chance of rain... 80%.  There's a Gale Warning posted from 6pm today until 6pm tomorrow.  This storm system will be bringing along much colder temps.  By tonight we'll see the thermometers drop to under 40° with a wind chill of 29° overnight.  Speaking of overnight, expect winds to increase even more with 40+mph gusts.  Strap down.  Tomorrow... sunny, high near 55° with very blustery winds (25-30mph +gusting) and tomorrow night... temps around 40° with those damn West winds still bringing that March feel over the island... 30mph gusts.  Friday... sunny with temps tapping 60° and finally calmer winds (still breezy but calmer).  At this time, the weekend's looking wet... Saturday night rains and Sunday morning/afternoon rains.  After all, it is the last weekend in April... and you know what April showers bring.  I say bring it!

Spring-time Stunner

North Wildwood - Seaport Village Pier - 2008

Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  It's a beauty!  Ms Sun just rose over the horizon and the sky is cloudless and perfect for the morning glow.  Everything's turning bright yellow outside.  Sea breezes are light out of the W-SW at 4-6mph.  There's a layer of morning dew on everything as the island birds and seagulls chirp, laugh and cackle.  It'll be a Spring stunner today... abundant sunshine, temps in the low-60s and S-SW winds at 15-20mph.  Tonight... clear, low of 54° with South winds kicking up at 20-25mph.  Tomorrow... a totally different animal... partly cloudy during the morning giving way to dark, ominous cloud cover, rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds by the afternoon some as strong as 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be tapping 60°.  Chance of rain tomorrow... 90% chance.  Thursday... waking to the chill covering the island, with a mostly gray day and blustery winds sustained at 25mph with temps barely tapping 50° feeling like low-40s with a windchill!  There should be no windchills in April!

A Monday Mix

This Morning's Webcam Shot-North Wildwood
Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under partial cloud cover. Ms Sun rose only minutes ago and between the cloud cover and the bright morning sunrise, we're seeing some extraordinary colors in the sky.  Not much in breezes... SW 1-3mph.  It looks like we could get rain today into this evening with 60% chance on all the weather forecasts I've reviewed.  Expect a partly cloudy day with occasional rain showers beginning later this morning.  Temps will be in the upper 50s with SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy as this rain system clears out, upper 40s and W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... mainly sunny, high around 62° and blustery with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Wednesday... looks like a stormy afternoon.

Lovely Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 43° in Wildwood NJ.  Another beautiful start to the day.  We've got clear skies except for right along the horizon making the sunrise time a bit later than expected.  But, as Ms Sun's breaking through those clouds it's all looking quite spectacular.  Winds are light out of the W-NW at 3-5mph.  If you're lucky enough to be watching this morning unfold, you're lucky enough.  It'll be a sunny day with high of around 60°.  Winds will be out of the West at 10-15mph.  Tonight... some clouds begin to filter in as it'll be partly cloudy with temps around 50° and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... partly to mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a rain shower (20% chance) and temps around 60° with S-SW winds at 5-10mph.

Nice Weekend Ahead

Mornin'!  It's 47° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly.  Breezes are out of the NW at 10-12mph.  It's a bit chilly but lovely as well with sea air wafting and seagulls yapping.  It'll be a pretty weekend beginning with this wonderful sunshine (some clouds are in the mix today) and temps in the upper 50s / low 60s.  W-NW winds will be kicking up a bit at 10-20mph.  Tonight... partial cloud cover, low around 48° with W-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, high of 61° with West winds at 5-10mph dropping down to 50° by tomorrow night.

TGIF

Mornin'!  It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly!  Breezes are a bit stiff... NW at 10-20mph.  It's going to be a blustery day with partly sunny skies, high of 59° and 20-30mph winds from the W-NW.  I wouldn't count on the hairspray today.  Tonight... temps down to where they are now... mid 40s with W-NW winds at 10-20mph and a few clouds in the starlit sky.  Tomorrow... a repeat of today... lots of sunshine, upper 50s and W-NW winds at 10-20mph.  Sunday... another repeat but without the blustery winds.  Monday... a bit of cloud cover with a 20% chance of a shower and still not blustery.  It was 3 months ago this week that Freddy left us.  It's become easier and easier adjusting to his absence but the pain of losing him still pops up when you least expect it and boy does it take a good stab at you. It was such a fun 8 years with him.

Mostly Gray Day

The Titanic Compared To Today's Cruise Ship
Mornin'!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under thick cloud cover and wet surfaces from the overnight and this morning's rains.  Everything got a good watering and we're in the damp, raw and chilly mode.  Breezes are minimal out of the E-NE at 3-6mph.  It'll be generally cloudy today with a slight chance of rain showers before the afternoon (40% chance).  Temps will be tapping 60° with W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  By this evening, we might see Ms Sun setting as the clouds continue to filter out.  Tonight... still some leftover clouds, temps down into the mid-40s and NW winds ramping up at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... Ms Sun returns!  It'll be warmer with a high of 60° but windy with W-NW winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  The weekend's looking good... sunny with seasonable temps (mid-upper 50s) and not as blustery as Friday.  Somehow, I always remember the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  It was 109 years ago last night (11:40pm) that the enormous ship ran into an iceberg on its very first voyage and sunk (less than 3 hrs later) the morning of April 15th (2:20am) with over 1,000 passengers still on board.  Over 1500 souls lost their lives to that fateful ocean cruise.  The ocean water was 28°.

Cloudy Start - Sunny Finish

Mornin'!  It's 47° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the N-NE at 9-12mph.  We're under cloud cover again but this morning the clouds are breaking up here and there.  You can see what leftover clouds we had from yesterday and overnight are beginning to show signs of blue sky.  The forecasts are saying mostly cloudy early, then sunshine by this afternoon.  As the sun begins to warm the island, temps will rise up a bit and be in the low-mid 50s with E-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear as the sky prepares us for a decent sunset, mid-40s and S-SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... clouds formulate again and cover the skies by the afternoon. There's 40% chance of rain.  Temps will just about tap 60° with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  This next rain system will head right into Thursday afternoon but we actually could see the sun set by evening.

Gray Monday

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under thick cloud cover with not a chance of any morning sunrise.  Breezes are out of the N-NE at 10-15mph.  It's raw, chilly with that ominous feel.  Yesterday morning, we had heavy fog, but today it's only cloudy.  Late yesterday morning, we had Ms Sun break through and provide us a warm, sunny day.  Not sure if that will happen again today but most forecasts I've checked reported a gray day with thick cloud cover and a 20% chance of rain showers.  Ms Sun might break through this afternoon (according to one forecast).  Temps will be in the low-mid 50s with stiff N-NE winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, 40% chance of rain, low around 45° and NE winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly sunny / partly cloudy day with temps in the mid-50s and NE winds at 10-15mph.  Wednesday... we could see rain showers by the afternoon. Thursday... looks like a rainy day.  Friday... a slight chance of rain.  It's looking like April is showing her true colors this week.  Anything can change when it comes to the weather. You just never know.

Gray, Wet, New-Moon, April Shower Sunday

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with winds out of the E-SE at 8-10mph.  The light rain will continue until early afternoon (90% chance) and taper off as it'll develop into a mostly overcast and cloudy day.  Temps will tap 60° with SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... scattered rain showers return and thunderstorms are on the weather map (50% chance) with temps dropping to 50° and E-NE winds at 5-10mph.  It'll rain overnight into Monday with showers in the very early morning hours and a cloudy day on tap for tomorrow.  We should peeks of sun in the afternoon but it'll be breezy with N-NE winds at 15-25mph as temps in the mid-50s will feel much cooler I'm sure.  Ocean breezes aren't feeling refreshing yet.  The new moon is today creating much more higher than normal "high" tides.

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with a light breeze out of the E-SE at 7-9mph.  We've got cloud cover on the West side of the island and sunny skies on the East side.  It appears as though this cloud mass is moving northeast.  It's supposed to be generally cloudy today which would indicate that this mass of clouds is heading right for us.  Remains to be seen.  Expect a partly to mostly cloudy day with temps in the upper 50s / low 60s and SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... cloudy with occasional showers (60% chance), temps in the low-50s, S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... rain (80% chance) but ending early with breaks of sun in the afternoon.  We could even see (and hear) a thunderstorm.  Temps will be tapping 60° with S-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Monday... mostly to partly cloudy with a high of 56°.
