Hazy, Hot and Humid Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms "hazy" Sun is up and shining big and red-orange through the muddled sky.  The moment I saw the sun I thought... "Oh, it's going to be a hot one today."  Humidity's 91% with a Dew Point of 70°.  Breezes are out of the SW at 3-8mph.  It's a beauty outside this morning.  The island birds are all making their presence known, the breezes are warm, it has that tropical feel and then that aroma of the salty, briny sea is in the air completing the feast for the senses.  In my opinion, it couldn't get any better.  It'll be a warm, sunny, humid day with plenty of sunshine, temps in the mid-upper 80s and S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, low around 74° and SW breezes at 15-20+mph.  Tomorrow... more plentiful sunshine, mid-upper 80s and Southerly breezes.  Thursday and Friday may be wet with 40% chance of rain both days.  Thinking of my favorite place in the world... Key West which has begun to get pummeled by Hurricane Elsa.  Keeping those folks in my thoughts and prayers!

FOOTNOTE: I'm hearing and seeing that all reports are coming in that the Jersey Coast will probably get a thunderstorm or two beginning this early evening.  There's a 60% chance.  These coastal storms are here and there and sporadic but when checking the Doppler, it does look we'll probably be dealing with some winds, threatening clouds then rain, thunder and lightning possibly coming right over Wildwood so keep your eye on the sky!
