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!

"There should be no wind chills in April". How about no highs of 70 degrees yesterday and rain and snow and 25 degrees tonight! Fruit trees here are finished blooming and are now forming fruit. It could be a couple of rough days/nights in the Ozarks to say nothing of the possibility of no fruits down the line for the wild critters.

Keeping up with the weather is a full time job, as you know. But you go even one better with your beautiful photographs. If you believe in reincarnation, you will come back as a world famous photographer.

Well, like you Tina I am looking at possible windchills of low 30s / upper 20s overnight tomorrow into Thursday morning. It'll actually be low 40s but with very cold blustery winds. We're expecting a cold snap briefly as our blooming trees, buds and early, young plants will be in the way of this nighttime frigid air. I can only imagine by your Osarks description of how tough this could be in your vicinity (including those critters suffering from the cold fallout). Good luck. I'll be thinking of you and sending warm wishes. As for you compliment on my beautiful photographs... so nice of you! No one's ever said that to me. I felt verklempt! Thank you so much. And, as always thanks for following. It's nice knowing you're out there reading my words!
