Today's Postings: Wind Advisory - Gale Warning

Today's WebCam Shots

Mornin'!  Daylight Saving's pulled the rug from under me this year as I'm waking much later than usual. Sorry about the "late-ish" blog recently.   It's 37° in Wildwood NJ.  Windchill is 27°.  It's cloudy with Ms Sun peeking out from under the bottom of the line of clouds on the horizon line.  It's windy; very windy, in fact there's currently W-NW winds at 25-35mph +gusting.  The clouds are moving so swiftly changing the sky's appearance almost every second.  At the same time, the tops of all the ocean waves are being blown into Spindrifts (cockscombs).   We're right in the midst of missing most of a Nor'easter that's happening all around us.  It really should be considered a half of a Nor'easter.  Don't get me wrong, we're feeling the effects of very wild weather with winds and rough surf, but nothing like surrounding areas like New England. The Coast is going to see Wind Advisories and Gale Fore Winds Warning posted today until 6pm tomorrow.  Everything's on the table... hazardous seas are happening... mariners beware; trees and tree limbs breaking and power outages may result with these sustained, relentless, strong winds.  
It'll be partly cloudy today and very windy (W-NW at 25-40mph +gusting) feeling much colder with the windchill and with those non-stop, March winds as temps will be in the low-40s.  There's also a 25% chance of precipitation (rain or snow flurries depending on our Temps today).  Tonight... decreasing cloudiness, but still very windy.  Temps will drop down to the low-30s with W-NW winds at 25-35mph +gusting.  It'll feel like 25°.  Tomorrow... partly sunny and still windy with temps in the upper 40s. Clear tomorrow night.  Did I mention that March really stinks down the Shore?  Did I mention that March is my least favorite month?
