Wet And Windy

Mornin'!  It's 55° in Wildwood NJ.  Feels like 50° with the winds blasting us this morning.  Winds are out of the NE at 25-30mph +gusting. We had torrential rains early this morning.  There are some "warnings" posted.  A "Coastal Flood Warning" is up meaning that tidal flood is occurring or imminent.  Be prepared for rising water levels and take appropriate action (be aware of high tide times, flood sirens, prepare to move your vehicle if in a low-lying flood area, protect life and property etc).  Do not drive through flood waters.  It could be deeper than you think and you will definitely be damaging your vehicle.  A "Gale Warning" is also posted until tomorrow at 6pm. Mariners should alter plans to avoid these conditions.  Seek safe harbor, alter course and/or secure the vessel.  Entering the surf is highly discouraged.  Anyone doing so is putting their lives in danger.
Okay, enough of the warnings.  It'll be a rainy and windy Memorial Day weekend Saturday.  Expect rains and winds throughout the day.  Temps will be in the upper 50s with NE winds at 25-30mph.  Tonight, more rain with temps staying where they are now... mid-upper 50s.  And, of course those NE winds at 25-30mph.  Tomorrow... sorry to report but the same as today.  Monday... sun returns by mid-day and not as windy.
