Happy Humpday!

Mornin'!  Happy Hump Day!  It's 51° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun rose about an hour ago and is shining brightly.  Breezes are light out of the S-SE at 5-8mph.  It's a perfect autumn morning down the Shore.  Expect a beautiful autumn day with plenty of sunshine, temps in the low-60s and Southerly winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... some clouds filter in as the temps drop into the mid-upper 50s as S-SW winds waft (wift) over the island at 10-20mph. Tomorrow... another beauty and even warmer.  Expect lots of sunshine, temps in the upper 60s and S-SW winds at 15-25mph.  At this time, the weekend's looking more cloud covered than anything else.  Saturday will be partly cloudy with peeks of sunshine but by early evening, the clouds will take over and on Sunday... mostly cloudy with rains coming Sunday night.  So, some things are going on above us at the moment.  It's the Leonid Meteor Shower peeking today.  If skies are clear overnight, you'll see the meteors (about 5-10 an hour) mostly in the pre-dawn sky.  An almost Full Moon isn't going to allow a whole lot of star gazing as its brightness will hamper successful viewing.  This upcoming Full "beaver" Moon is Friday.  And, if the clouds permit, we might see a partial lunar eclipse around between 1am and 6am EST on the 19th.  Not to mention it's Moon-Rising time and it really is something to experience along the coast.  It'll be early today... 4pm rise.
