Mostly Sunny Humpday

A Variety of This Morning's Webcam Shots

Mornin'!  It's 33° in Wildwood NJ.  The sky is clear as the stars and moon fade and the horizon lightens.  The colors along the beach are spectacular... golds, corals, pinks, purples and so on.  It's breezy with S-SW winds at 15-20mph creating a windchill of 22°.   We're going to have another (mostly) sunny day with a mix of sun and clouds, along with gusty winds... SW 20-30mph +gusting.  Temps will be higher than yesterday... mid-40s but will feel like the mid-30s.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps around 35° and SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-40s and light and variable winds.  Saturday looks cloudy and cold.  The mid-day temps around 20° with a windchill of 10° created by the North winds. And, Saturday is Wildwood's Polar Bear Plunge (1pm at Montgomery Ave Beach) and it's going to be brutal for those bundled up standing on the beach watching those in bikinis and bathing trunks running into the ocean.  Sunday looks mostly cloudy with rain/snow showers checking in around mid-day or late afternoon with temps in the 40s.  The weather folk have been talking about this Sunday weather system since yesterday afternoon.  "Snow" has been mentioned more than once.  The temps on Sunday though seem to be in the mid-40s so "rain" seems to be more accurate at this time along our coast.  Not so much for the interior section of the map (I95 corridor area).   I'm keeping a close watch on that one.  I'm pretty sure I've mentioned (more than once) that Wildwood's snow cover has been melted down just about everywhere aside from a few shady (snow mound) spots here and there.  Some things to note... today is the first day since we changed the clocks in November that Sunset is in the 5 o'clock hour!  The Full Moon is the 17th (just a reminder).
