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.

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!
