Friday Storm Warning and Gale Force Winds Today

Mornin'!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It's raining lightly with stiff winds out of the East at 25-30mph.  The island's being pummeled again today as rain and wind is on today's weather menu.  There's a "storm warning" posted.  Expect rain and wind with temps near 65° and East winds at 25-40mph.  Chance of rain is 100%.  Tonight... becoming cloudy after a day and evening of wind and rain.  Temps will be around the 60° mark with Southerly winds at 25-35mph finally decreasing to 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... partly sunny to partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain in the afternoon, temps in the mid-60s and South winds at 10-20mph.  Sunday... sunnier and calmer with intervals of clouds and sunshine, temps in the mid-60s and West winds at 10-15mph.  It'll inevitably be flooding on the island today so stay aware of the "high tide" times and "low-lying" areas on the island today.  Remember that the back bay / marsh area has "high tide" an hour later than the ocean side of the island.  Be conscious of where you park your vehicle.  Make sure your "wellies" are close at hand! Hunker down... it's going to be a stormy, wet, windy day on the island!
