Crapola Week Up Ahead

Mornin'!  It's 70° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 96% with a dewpoint of 70°.  Along with the humidity, it's cloudy with winds out of the SE at 10-15mph.  We're drenched and quiet as the blustery winds have subsided and the flood waters have receded.  I doubt if we'll be drying up any time soon with what Ophelia did to the island.  We had some good ol' tropical rainfall, tidal flooding and beach erosion. I've got a lot of clean up from all the pruning of the trees with branches and leaves she provided.  No damage that I've noticed other than debris all over.  The windows look grimy outside.  The ocean's roar is loud and clear from 6+ blocks away.  The birds are quiet for some reason.  I'm assuming that we're out of the stormy mess for now.  It'll be an overcast day with possible peeks of sun by sunset.  Temps will be in the low-mid 70s with South winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with a 25% chance of rain showers, temps in the mid-60s and SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... overcast with rain showers (50% chance) and temps around 70°.  N-NW winds are on tap at 15-25mph.  Tuesday... cloudy and windy (NE 25-35mph) and 40% chance of rain.  In fact, there's a chance it could rain every day next week!  I'll keep you posted.
