Winds-Still-A-Whippin' Wednesday

Mornin'!  It's 35° in Wildwood NJ.  Feels like 23° with the windchill.  We're still in "Gale Warning mode".  It's somewhat sunny with clouds in the mix making for a beautiful, picturesque scene along the beach as Ms Sun rises through it all.  Winds are still intense... NW at 25-35mph +gusting of up to 50mph.  They've been intense for over 24hours now and will continue throughout today into the night.  We got no snow at all.  In fact, yesterday would have been a Spring Beauty if not for those winds.  I took a 2 mile walk fighting those gales and every so often, the winds died down and immediately felt the warmth from the sun's rays.  It lasted only seconds as the intense wind slaps were almost non-stop. Our neighbors up north (Massachusetts) got 3' of the very heavy wet snow with this Nor'easter.  Spring snows are tough because they're so intensely heavy.   Lot's to be grateful for this round as we came out of this ok so far. 
Expect a mix of sun and clouds today with gusty winds (NW 25-35mph + gusting) and temps near 48°.  Tonight... clear skies, temps around 34° feeling like 29° with leftover NW winds at 15-25mph +gusting. Note that today's sunrise and sunset times are the same!  Tomorrow... sunny, temps in the low-mid 50s with West winds at normal speeds... 10-15mph.  As for this coming weekend, Saturday looks like we could be waking to rain as it turns partly sunny with temps in the upper 40s and not off-the-chart windy.  Sunday... winds will be blustery, temps barely in the 40s and partly sunny / partly cloudy.  Oh, it's the Ides of March.  The anniversary of the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated.
