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°.

A Mostly Cloudy Friday


Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under partial cloud cover which is providing Ms Sun another picturesque sunrise in less than a half an hour.  The sky along the horizon is already painted with many shades of pastel colors.  Breezes are out of the East at 5-8mph.  A mass of unsettled, possibly wet weather is headed in our direction from the South.  Later today, a stray shower or thunderstorm is possible (25% chance) and by tonight... 75% chance.  Expect a  mostly cloudy day with the possibility of light rain and a high of 55°, with E-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... rain showers and possibly thunderstorms with a low of 51° and E-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... showers in the morning then cloudy in the afternoon with a high of 60° and SE winds at 10-15mph (50% chance of rain).  Sunday... another gray day with 50% chance of rain showers.  Monday... Ms Sun begins to peek on through the leftover weekend cloud cover.   By the way, the New Moon is Sunday and already the high tides are much more swollen than normal.  Be aware of any water you may be tempted to drive through.  It's mostly likely salt water or a mix of salt and rain waters if we get heavy rains and very corrosive stuff for that vehicle undercarriage.

Spring Loveliness Continues

Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  The somewhat dark sky is turning gold as the horizon line prepares for dawn and Ms Sun who's crossing over in just about 10 minutes.  Breezes are light out of the East at 5-7mph.  It's a beautiful morning and the birds can vouch for me.   Another lovely Spring day is on tap.  Expect plenty of sunshine with temps tapping 60° and East winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy as some clouds roll on in.  Temps will drop down to where they are now... mid-upper 40s with E-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy with a stray shower or two and even a thunderstorm is possible with temps in the mid-upper 50s and East winds at 10-15mph. At this time, it looks like the weekend will have "wet spots" with rain on Saturday morning turning to just a cloudy afternoon and evening.  Sunday's looking wet off and on throughout the day.

Possibility Of Rain Today

Today's North Wildwood Webcam Shots
Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are out of the N-NE at 4-6mph.  Dawn is approaching.  We're under partial cloud cover as Ms Sun's working her way over the ocean's horizon.  Thanks to those clouds, we're once again having a spectacular sunrise as Ms Sun's got her color wheel painting the sky every color of the rainbow this morning.  Expect a mostly cloudy first half of the day with a 40% chance of occasional rain showers.  By sunset, the rain clouds should be gone as it's supposed to be mostly sunny this evening as Ms Sun sets and hopefully be as beautiful as her sunrise today.  Temps will be in the mid-50s today.  E-NE winds at 10-15mph are also on tap.  Tonight... clear, mid-upper 40s and East winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, mid-50s and East winds at 10-15mph.  For this weekend... looking gray and wet both days (40-50% chance of rain).

Easter Monday

Mornin'!  It's 48° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny (without a cloud in the sky) and pleasant with barely a breeze out of the NW at 4-6mph.  The birds are making their presence known and chirping happily from what seems like every nook and cranny in my neighborhood.  I think its what's making it feel so amazing outside... so many happy birds at the seashore.  I know it makes me happy.  Yesterday, we just about touched the 70° mark and today will probably do the same.  Expect plenty of sunshine, temps in the mid-upper 60s and W-NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... clouds roll on through giving us a slight chance of a rain shower (15% chance) as temps drop back to the upper 40s with N-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... starts out with some cloud cover giving way to sunny skies by late morning / early afternoon, temps in the low-mid 60s and NW winds at 10-15mph.

Easter Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 32° in Wildwood NJ.  Breezes are light out of the NW at 5-10mph.  There's is a slight windchill of 26°.  This morning's weather has Winter all over it.  I'm surprised there's not a layer of frost on everything but there's not.  Ms Sun's up and doing her part to begin today's warm up.  Expect sunny, blue skies with some clouds in the mix.  Temps will be tapping 50° with those NW winds ramping up a bit at 10-20mph.  Tonight... considerable cloudiness, low of 43° and West winds at 5-10mph.

I took a 3 mile walk yesterday and it was brutal.  Firstly, I should have had on my winter parka with a thick wooly scarf instead of opting for my Spring jacket and light scarf.  And secondly, I felt so cold while walking under very blustery conditions and no sunshine to speak of as it became a mostly cloudy day.  I kept thinking to myself, "Why didn't I dress for Winter"?  Thankfully, my hubby was my encouragement to keep on keeping on.  I must report that for as cold as it was yesterday, the boardwalk was jumping with holiday visitors.  Lots of activity was happening as eateries were open as well as arcades and shops.  Macks, Sams, Franconis, Hot Spot, Candy Land, Fudge Kitchen, Funnel Cake Shop as well as Curley's Fries were not only drawing in the boardwalk folk but adding some great aromas to the salty air!  I'm sure we'll see even more folks today with a sunnier, warmer day ahead.  Tomorrow's weather will be beautiful with a sunny start, partly cloudy in the afternoon, tapping 60° and West winds at 10-15mph.  Monday... sunny, 60° and breezy.

April's In The House

Mornin'!  It's 75° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly.  There's not a breeze to be had and it's a warm summer morning.  April Fools!!!  It's 45° with gray, misty skies, wet and drippy surfaces (from all the intense overnight rains) and breezes out of the N-NW at 20-25mph +gusting.  It's raw and damp, cold, windy and perfectly miserable.  And, that's no April Fools joke.   Expect a gray, wet morning (few rain showers due in) with clearing by this afternoon as drier air moves in on today's gusty winds.  Winds will continue out of the NW at 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will reach the low-50s.  We'll probably see sunshine in the early evening just in time for sunset.  Tonight... a few leftover clouds with a low of 33° (no April Fools joke there either).  You might want to cover any tender, young plants outside.  NW winds will still be around tonight at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... intervals of clouds and sun with more clouds taking over later in the day, temps around 40° and NW winds at 15-25mph.  Saturday and Sunday... sunny with temps around 50°.  Welcome April!  Your showers will hopefully bring all those May flowers!
