Rainy Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's 78° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 86% with a dewpoint of 72°.  It's gray and raining lightly with winds out of the S-SE at 10-12mph.  We're heading into a stretch of wet weather.  This is how it's going to go according to two fairly reputable forecasts I depend on.  For today... expect a rainy day beginning this morning.  I'm pretty sure these very light showers at the moment only just began as the streets and sidewalks are just becoming damp.  By this afternoon, horse of a different color as heavy rain will be developing (100% chance) with thunderstorms added to the stormy mix.  In fact, today there's a "flood watch" posted for Wildwood until 8pm tonight.  Temps will just about tap 80° as it'll be humid today (duh) and winds will be all over the place at 10-15mph (beginning from the S-SE, South, S-SW, West, N-NW, North, and ending N-NE by late tonight).  Tonight... 60% chance of precipitation with still a possibility of thunderstorms.  Temps will drop into the upper 60s with N-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... rain (70% chance) becoming windy (NE at 20-30mph) in the afternoon.  40% chance of rain tomorrow night.  Thursday... 20% chance of rain as it'll become partly cloudy with peeks of sunshine.
Remember to be aware of tidal flood today into tonight.  The Full Moon is Saturday and even though it's 4 days away, that big ol' moon has an effect on the tides; especially if we get heavy rains and you're in a low-lying area.  Know those low-lying areas if parking or traversing around the island if it's raining hard during high tides.  Do your best not to drive through flood waters.  The salty water can do damage to the undercarriage of your vehicle.  High ground is along Surf Avenue in North Wildwood, New Jersey Avenue in Wildwood and Seaview Avenue in the Crest.  As for West Wildwood... I don't have anything for you. Be careful out there.
