And, So September Begins!

Mornin'!  Happy September!  The Jewel is here!  Well, almost anyway as there's a "gale warning" posted to kick off September.   It's 78° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 97% with a dew point of 77°.  Breezes are out of the South at 5-7mph.  We're gray and surrounded by clouds as the remnants of Ida are looming.  Prepare for a partly sunny / partly cloudy, windy day especially this afternoon as S-SE winds are on tap at 20-30mph+gusting.  Chance of rain is 40% and we may not even see any moisture hitting the island until this evening.  Temps will be in the low-80s.  Tonight... very windy (S-SW shifting to W-NW at 25-35mph+gusting) and wet as there's a 90% chance of rain.  Temps will drop into the upper 60s / low 70s.  We could get some serious rainfall late tonight into the early morning as there's potential for flooding on the island.  Know your tide times and remember that the back of the island (marsh/wetland side) is an hour later on the high-tide times.  Keep your vehicle safe by parking away from low-lying areas.  There's even been mention of isolated tornadoes being a possibility... just saying.  You might want to secure anything that could become a projectile.  Tomorrow... waking to rain, becoming partly to mostly sunny by late morning / early afternoon as temps stay relatively low... mid-70s and staying very windy.  I'll stick by September being "The Jewel" just give her a chance and she'll be showing her spectacular jewel-like weather before long.  Actually, this holiday weekend isn't looking too shabby as Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (with the exception of Monday morning's rain) are all lined up to be pleasant, not-too-hot, weather days!
