New Moon TGIF!

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and working her butt off to shine through these TGIF morning clouds.  It's those milky clouds everywhere.  Now and then you catch a glimpse of the blue sky when they move aside for streams of sunshine.  Winds are out of the SE at 10-15mph.  It's a lovely, very comfortable morning.  It's an extremely active morning on the island. The feeling of the season commencing is loud and clear.  Contractors and construction everywhere.  Those getting ready... cleaning, landscaping, new builds; re-builds; repairs, restorations etc is happening everywhere.  The sounds of new roofs being hammered, table saws humming, workmen shouting to each other, big trucks traversing the streets around Wildwood has been heard for quite awhile and now with a fever-pitch energy. Not to mention, Pacific Avenue is finally being paved (we had some dirt-sand surface there for a bit) as blacktop is being poured, coated and tar smell has been overtaking the briny sea aroma that's for sure.  Anyway, I'm no exception as my awning installers are coming this morning to secure my canvas awnings for us to enjoy the next 5 months or so.  I just returned from the grocery store to pick up needed items missing from my pantry since pre-vacation clean-out back in the beginning of May. 
Sorry I'm rambling, back to the weather.  It'll be a mix of clouds and sun this morning, finally giving way to a cloudy afternoon.  Temps will only rise a degree or two... maybe mid-60s.  E-SE winds are on board at 10-15mph.  Tonight... partly to mostly cloudy with 60% chance of rain beginning overnight.  Temps will be in the upper 50s with East winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow...  40-60% chance of rain at least until noon.  We might see peeks of sunshine by late afternoon.  Temps will be near 70° with East-SE and East-NE winds at 5-10mph.   Sunday looks perfect... sunny, 70° with NW breezes. The New Moon is today as tides will be higher than normal.  If it does rain during high tide, you could see tidal flooding on the Streets.  Be aware of where you park for those low-lying areas. And, if stopping down this weekend, prepare for that slight chance of rain on Saturday. Happy Friday!
