Jammed Pack Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 73° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly through the cloudless sky this morning.  Breezes are light out of the N-NW at 4-6mph.  It's not as humid... humidity's 89% with a dew point of 70°.  And, it's lovely outside.  The island birds can vouch for me!  It'll be a perfect day for sand sculpting, Flag Football Tournament for the kids behind Moreys Pier, taking in the Jeep Invasion, hitting the BBQ-Blues Fest  in North Wildwood for some fantastic eats and music, and of course the weekly Farmers Market this morning!  Oh, tomorrow in the Crest (along the Lake) will be the fabulous Food Truck Festival. 

It'll be a pleasant day today with sunny to mostly sunny conditions.  There's a 15% chance of a passing stray shower or thunderstorm later.  Temps will be in the low-80s with W-NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps just tapping 70° and breezes will shift from the S-SE at 5-10mph.  Keep in mind with today's breezes (W-NW) you might want to keep that insect repellent close by as any breeze with "West" in it, may carry those biting green head flies.  Of course, you may want to coat yourself in oils of lemongrass, citrus, peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree oil, citronella or lavender to keep the flies in check on a more "natural" level.  But if the winds are coming from the land (West Winds) and are the main breeze of the day, you can almost be guaranteed the flies joining in your party.  If it's W-NW or N-NW or anything with "West" added to the direction of the breeze then it's hit or miss. For tomorrow's weather... considerable cloudiness early but with clouds decreasing as the day progresses and by late afternoon/early evening, we should see sunshine right into the lovely sunset.  The same for tomorrow as today in regard to the possibility of a passing shower or thunderstorm.  Temps will barely tap 80° with SE breezes at 10-15mph.  As for Monday... just thought I'd add this in as it's the same as Sunday... partly cloudy, chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm, with temps in the upper 70 / low 80s.  Always keep your eye on the sky!
