Welcome Autumn!

All Photos from this morning's Web Cam
Mornin'!  It's 72° in Wildwood NJ.  It's Autumn!  Today marks the Autumnal Equinox.  Ms Sun has officially crossed the Equator in the southerly direction.  It also marks when the daylight and nighttime hours are equally the same.  Whatever it means, Fall is here and it's kicking off its first morning in spectacular fashion. My webcam shots prove it.  It's lovely outside.  You couldn't ask for a nicer morning.  It's cool yet humid with heavy island air.  Humidity's 92% with a dew point of 70°.  Breezes are light out of the SE at 5-10mph.  There are clouds sprinkled all around us making for an incredibly spectacular Autumn sunrise.  In my opinion, Wildwood and surrounding local coastal areas have the most fantastic sunrises and sunsets, but Autumn kicks it up a notch and never disappoints.  Never.  This morning's no exception.  The Sun is trying to rise as I type and has less than half an hour to go.  After some rain showers last night, all is watered and fragrant.  We're going to have a 25% chance of more rain today.  Expect lots of clouds with peeks of sunshine, temps in the mid-upper 70s with S-SE winds at 15-25mph.  Tonight... 40% chance of rain including isolated thunderstorms.  Temps will be where they are now... low 70s with those (off-the-ocean) S-SE winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... 70% chance of precipitation with scattered showers and/or thunderstorms and potentially heavy rainfall and very stiff winds out of the S-SE at 20-30mph +gusting.  Sunshine comes back sometime Friday afternoon.  And, at this time, the "Irish Fest, Oktober Fest, Seafarers and Classic Car" weekend's looking 5-star albeit much cooler (60s/70s) and sunny with a true Autumn feel to it.  Enjoy!
