Partly Sunny Saturday

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 98% with a dew point of 68°.  Breezes are out of the North at 6-8mph.  At the moment, we're completely surrounded by cloud cover.  Ms Sun's up there and is doing all she can to break on through.  She will too as it'll be a partly sunny day with some clouds in the mix.  Temps will just about tap 80° with NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, low around 67° and NW breezes at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a sunny day, temps in the upper 70s with NE breezes at 10-15mph.  So, we have a bit of a disturbance off the East Coast at the moment.  It's about 200 miles southeast of Cape May and has sufficiently organized to earn the name tropical storm "Odette".  She's headed northeast away from land at about 15mph.  We'll still feel her effects with high, very rough surf and rip currents.  I'd recommend not dipping.  Oh, the Full Moon is Monday which has begun to affect our tides as well as they're beginning to be much higher than usual.  I just read that Jupiter was hit by something big (either an asteroid or rock) and was caught on camera!  Just amazing.  And, Autumn is in 4 days!
