Nice Weekend Ahead

Mornin'!  Happy Saturday!  It's 70° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's down... 59% with a dewpoint of 57°.  Speaking of "humidity" here's an fyi... If humidity levels are between 55 and 65 it's feeling a bit sticky.  Greater than 65, which has plenty of moisture in the air, it's beginning to feel oppressive.  If it's above 70%, the air can feel stifling and suffocating at this high level and can lead to excessive sweating with any physical exertion. If the air is around 90-100% relative humidity, sweat won't evaporate into the air and as a result, we feel hotter than the temperature. That's when it's best to be in air conditioning or near water to keep cooled down. 
Back to the weather... It's comfortable outside with much lower humidity, breezes out of the West at 10-15mph as Ms Sun's shines brightly.  No cloud cover to report.  It'll be a lovely day with plenty of sunshine, temps in the low-80s and winds out of the West at 10-20mph (yesterday we got up to 86°). Tonight... clear with a few clouds, temps in the upper 60s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the low-80s and West winds at 10-20mph.  There's a 15% chance of a rain shower.  Tomorrow night... partly cloudy, temps in the low-70s and NW winds at 5-10mph.  Monday... sunny, temps around 80° with W-NW winds at 10-15mph.

Mornin'!  It's 71° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 82% with a dewpoint of 67°.  Winds are out of the W-NW at 5-8mph.  It's sunny; it's briny and it's a bit noisy with sea birds all making their presence known.  All in all, it's a perfectly lovely morning down the Shore.  Expect lots of sunshine today with temps in the low-mid 80s and West winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-60s and W-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, 80° with West winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... clear, low-70s and light and variable breezes.  Sunday... partly to mostly cloudy, temps around 80°, possible chance of a rain shower around dinner time, West winds 8-10mph.

Anniversary of "D-Day"

Mornin'!  It's "D-Day". Today we honor our troops and allied armies in what became known as the largest amphibious invasion in military history in Normandy France achieving their objective which was gaining a foothold in liberating Europe and of course securing our freedoms. In the course of this daring invasion 80 years ago today, 160,000 troops landed by sea and air on the French coast.  More than 9,000 were killed or wounded - the majority of them American.  
It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 89% with a dewpoint of 69°.  We're under mostly cloud cover above the entire island.  It seems the backside of the island has more blue sky visible.  Ms Sun's has peeked through a few times but at the moment... gray.  Winds are out of the SW at 10-15mph.  It'll be a mostly cloudy gray morning with Ms Sun peeking in but by this afternoon... thunderstorms (70% chance).  We could have gusty winds and small hail.  Temps will be in the low-80s with SW winds at 10-20mph +gusting.  Tonight... thunderstorms on the forecast with rain (70% chance).  Unsettled weather tonight will settle down and give way to partly cloudy skies after midnight, temps in the upper 60s and W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... a mix of mostly sunshine with some clouds, temps in the low-80s and West winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow night... clear, low-70s, W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  Saturday... sunny, mid-upper 70s, West winds at 5-10mph;  Saturday night... clear, low-70s, W-SW breezes.  Sunday... partly to mostly cloudy, temps in the upper 70s with light and variable winds. There's a 25% chance of rain in the evening.  It's the "New Moon" today which means it's invisible but pulling on the tides just like a Full Moon does.  Expect higher than normal tides and be aware of low-lying areas and high tide times.  In the event of heavy rain during high tide times, be aware of where you drive and park your vehicle.

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 95% with a dewpoint of 65°.  Winds are out of the SE at 7-10mph.  We're currently under thick dark clouds with Ms Sun actually peeking through every now and then (mostly over the ocean).  It'll be a partly sunny morning with clouds thickening this afternoon as rain is supposed to be on its way.  We'll may see occasional rain showers this afternoon (40% chance), with temps in the low-70s and S-SE wind at 10-15mph.  Tonight... 80% chance of rain with thunderstorms possible, temps in the upper 60s with South winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy in the morning followed by thunderstorms in the afternoon (60% chance), temps in the low-80s, SW winds at 10-20mph. Tomorrow night... scattered thunderstorms (40% chance), partly cloudy, temps in the upper 60s with W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  As for this upcoming weekend... Saturday will be a perfect day with plentiful sunshine, temps around 80°, winds out of the West at 10-20mph.  Saturday night... fair, temps in the mid-upper 60s with W-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday... a mix of sun and clouds, 20% chance of a passing rain showers, temps around 80°, West winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday night... 40% chance of rain, partly cloudy, temps in the low-mid 60s, West winds at 10-15mph.

Great "Election Day" Weather

Rented Beach Box Lockers  

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's shining in the clear, blue sky.  It's quiet except for the island birds who always seem so happy in the morning.  Breezes are light out of the East at 3-5mph.  It'll be a beauty today with a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the mid-upper 70s and E-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... areas of patchy fog with mostly cloudy skies, temps in the mid-60s and E-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... considerable cloudiness, occasional rain showers in the afternoon (40% chance), temps in the mid-upper 70s and S-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow night... 70% chance of rain, temps around 70° and Southerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Thursday... rain in the morning (70% chance), partly sunny, temps around 80° and SW breezes at 10-15mph.  There's a "Coastal Flood" advisory posted for tonight between 5pm and 10pm during the high tide.  I guess Thursday's New Moon has something to do with the higher than normal tides.  I wouldn't be surprised if we do see some tidal flood waters on the island in the next couple days with rain in our forecast and the New Moon looming.  Know your low-lying areas on the island that flood all the time, remember that the back of the island (marsh/bay-side) has high tide one hour after the ocean's high tide.  Be mindful of where you park.  And, don't drive through flood waters... salty, corrosive waters do a #%*@load of damage to the undercarriage of your vehicle.  And, today's Primary Election Day in New Jersey.  The nice weather is on your side... get out in the salty air and Vote!

Monday Mix

Mornin'!  It's 69° in Wildwood NJ.  It rained lightly during the early morning hours as we've been watered nicely.  No chance of seeing the alignment of those 6 planets lined up perfectly.  I was up checking at 4am believe it or not.  We're currently under cloud cover with the sky brightening as I type.   Ms Sun's up there and trying her best to shine through.  Winds are out of the W-SW at 4-8mph.  It'll be a nice day with a mix of sun and clouds, the possibility of a stray shower (15% chance), temps in the upper 70s and SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-60s and SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... another day with a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the low-mid 70s and East winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow night... partly cloudy, temps in the upper 60s and E-SE breezes.  Wednesday... looks like it could be a rainy day (40% chance), with temps in the low-70s and SE breezes.

Sunday Mix

Mornin'!  It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and trying to glow through the hazy, white, partly cloudy sky.  Winds are out of the SW at 9-11mph.  It's a lovely morning down the Shore albeit not full on sunshine. This afternoon will be partly sunny becoming partly cloudy, overcast and gray with temps in the low-mid 70s and S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy with 75% chance of rain later in the evening and overnight.  Tonight's temps will be in the mid-60s with S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... showers in the morning (60% chance), partly sunny by the afternoon with temps in the mid-70s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... partly cloudy, temps in the mid-60s with light and variable winds.  If for some reason we don't have those rain clouds in the early morning of Monday June 3rd, we're supposed to have an event that occurs once every 10 years which is six planets (Saturn, Neptune, Mars, Uranus, Mercury and Jupiter) will all align in a straight line exactly one hour before sunrise (between 4:30-5:30am).  If the sky (East-Southeast) is clear and somewhat dark before dawn tomorrow... we will be able to see Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury and Mars with the naked eye.

Today's the start to hurricane season.  And, unfortunately that season doesn't end until November 30th.  I've been through a couple and frankly, hurricane season is nothing to joke about and in my opinion very scary.  In fact, this 2024 season has some statistics that are already quite alarming. 
At a glance...
Tropical waves are already forming.
El Niño is expected to shift toward La Niña which historically enhances storms.
Ocean water is currently much warmer than usual.  The Caribbean to West Africa is where most storms form and the waters there have already reached their average peak temperature when it's usually in late summer.  The deeper and warmer the ocean water is, the more powerful a hurricane can become.
Hurricane outlook numbers are the highest forecasted by NOAA predicted 85% chance of an above-normal season.
There are predicted 25 named storms: 13 hurricanes (7 of which are major). These are the Atlantic names:
Alberto
Beryl
Chris
Debby
Ernesto
Francine
Gordon
Helene

Peace Out May

Mornin'!  This is it May!  I can't believe how short your Month seemed this year for some reason.  You brought just as many sunny days and you did rainy/cloudy days. It looks like your bowing out with a beautiful sunny day and saved the best for last.
It's 63° in Wildwood NJ.  It's sunny with N-NW breezes at 5-10mph.  It's a perfect morning down the Shore.  All the windows are wide open with sea breezes wafting in everywhere.  Island birds are happy with chirping and squawking from all over the island.  It'll be a perfect weather day today with plenty of sunshine, temps in the mid-70s and NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear, starlit skies, temsp around 60° and W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... another beauty... sunny, temps in the upper 70s and West winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... clear, temps in the upper 60s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Sunday... eh... not as great but no storms or rain.  Expect a mostly cloudy Sunday with temps in the mid-upper 70s and S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Monday... 60% chance of rain with 25% chance of rain Monday night.  Monday's temps probably won't get past 70°.  Until next year May, see you on the other side!

Tuesday Beauty

Mornin'! A very happy birthday to my better half... my beautiful, loving, fun husband of mine.  What a wonderful life you've shared with me.  Hope you have a wonderful day.  Love you!  This one's for you. And, so is that Key Lime Pie!
It's 70° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining without a cloud in the sky.  Humidity's 82% with a dewpoint of 65°.  Winds are out of the W-SW at 10-13mph.  It's a beauty out there this morning.  And, it'll be a beautiful day all day and into the night albeit on the breezy side today.  Expect a sunny day with temps tapping 80° along with West winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... clear, temps in the low-60s with W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny (some afternoon clouds) with temps in the upper 70s and NW winds becoming SW at 5-10mph.  There's a chance of a shower in the afternoon (20% chance).  Thursday... mostly sunny with some clouds in the mix, temps in the mid-upper 70s and NW winds at 5-10mph.

Memorial Day

Mornin'! It's Memorial Day!  It's time to reflect on all the lives who served to give us our Freedoms.  It's difficult to use the term "Happy" Memorial Day.  There's truly nothing "happy" about it.  Enjoy your holiday today but never forget those who gave up their life for us and our liberties. Today we remember and honor those who have paid that ultimate sacrifice. 
It's 66° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's 95% with a dewpoint of 65°; winds are out of the S-SE at 10-15mph.  We're drenched here on the island as we just had a couple major thunderstorms pass through for the last hour or so.  That's what woke me this morning.  Everything just got nicely watered and the streets are still a bit on the floody-side as they're draining while I type.  The island birds seem to all be celebrating their Memorial Day morning showers.
It'll be mostly wet today as this rain system that's passed and is over the ocean now, may be the prelude to the rest of those developing storms headed our way.  We might see peeks of sun this morning, but by the afternoon, there's a 90% chance of more stormy weather passing over us.  Temps will be in the low-mid 70s with South winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Tonight... 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms, becoming partly cloudy late into the overnight, temps back to the mid-upper 60s and SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, temps near 80°, and West winds at 10-15mph.

The Intensity Continues

Mornin'!  It's 67° in Wildwood NJ.  It's cloudy and gray with humidity at 93%.  The air is heavy and it's almost foggy but not quite.  Ms Sun's trying to brighten things up but for the most part it looks like it could rain at any moment.  Breezes are barely there out of the S-SE at 3-5mph.  When I researched today's weather, I kept getting conflicting forecasts.  One is foggy this morning.  Another is light rain this morning (70% chance).  Another is sunny this morning.  For the record, there's no sunshine and no rain.  It looks like it's going to be a partly sunny Sunday, temps in the low-mid 70s and SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy with occasional showers overnight (40% chance), temps in the low-60s and S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... showers and thunderstorms on tap (70% chance), otherwise cloudy, temps in the low-70s with Southerly stiff breezes at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow night... rain 80% chance (we could see heavy rainfall), temps in the low-60s with South winds at 15-20mph.  Tuesday... sunny with temps in the mid-upper 70s.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 66° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and almost finished melting all that fog that was hovering over the island this morning.  Breezes are barely there at 3-5mph out of the SE.  The birds are chirping and squawking all over the neighborhood.  Windows are all still wide open admitting all that sea air into the house.  It's a perfectly lovely morning down the Shore.  We're going to have a mix of sun and clouds this morning which will give way to a partly to mostly sunny afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-mid 70s with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... mostly cloudy, temps in the low-60s and Southerly winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... partly to mostly cloudy, 25% chance of a shower, temps around 70° with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... mostly cloudy, temps in the mid-60s with 8-10mph breezes out of the S-SE.  Monday... looking gray with scattered showers and/or thunderstorms (60% chance), temps around 70° with S-SE winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Monday night... thunderstorms during the evening and leftover showers overnight (70% chance), temps in the upper 60s, S-SW winds at 10-20mph.

And, So It Begins...

Mornin'!  It's 66° in Wildwood NJ.  Humidity's way up there at 91%.  It's not raining either.  But, it is gray and cloudy as Ms Sun's trying her best to break through the morning clouds. My guess is she's not going to make it.  It's heavy, still and quiet at the moment. Rain is coming in a few hours so they say.  The holiday weekend is here!  And, this weather isn't the only thing thick on the island.  It just seems like yesterday that my street only had one car parked on it.  No parking available now as the revelers seem to be officially checked in as the "off" season is back "on".
We're supposed to have rain (60% chance) this morning (around10-11am) then it'll become partly cloudy (hazy sunshine) for the rest of the day.  Temps will be up there... mid-upper 70s.  By the way, we got up to 83° yesterday and all the air conditioners are on in the neighborhood it seems.  Not mine yet.  Tonight... mostly clear with temps in the low-60s and winds light and variable.  Tomorrow...  partly sunny, temps around 70° and East winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... mostly cloudy, temps in the low-mid 60s with South winds at 5-10mph.  Sunday... cloudy start with peeks of sunshine later in the day, temps around 70° with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Sunday night... cloudy with showers beginning late and into the overnight, temps in the low-60s with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Chance of rain is 50%.  Monday... rain with thunderstorms developing in the afternoon, temps around 70° with Southerly winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Monday night... rain (90% chance) with thunderstorms overnight, temps in the mid-60s with SW winds at 10-20mph.

Memorial Day Early Weather Forecast

Mornin'!  And, what a beauty it is!  It's 67° with Ms Sun shining brightly and light winds out of the South at 6-8mph.  Blog's a bit late due to grocery shopping at 6:45AM.  I'm back, the groceries are put away and I'm sipping coffee, doing the blog with windows wide open, seabreeze wafting in and birds chirping everywhere in my neighborhood.  It's a lovely Spring morning here on the island. We're going to have mostly sunny skies, temps around 70° and Southerly breezes at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear and moonlit with some light clouds in the mix, temps in the low-mid 60s and S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Here's where the weather turns. And at the moment, I'm the bearer of not great 2024 Memorial weekend weather news.  Keep in mind, it's still early on the forecasts and we're in the Cape May Bubble and it can all change on a dime (for the better or for the worse).  I also must repeat that it's gorgeous outside at the moment.  I'll be bicycling this morning on the boardwalk.  I wouldn't miss that for the world.  Okay, here goes...
Tomorrow... possibly waking to rain (50% chance), scattered thunderstorms throughout the afternoon, gusty winds and small hail are a possibility, temps in the mid-70s with S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow night... cloudy, occasional rain showers (50% chance), temps in the low 60s and SW winds at 10-15mph. 
Friday... showers in the morning (40% chance), cloudy in the afternoon, temps in the mid-70s with W-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Friday night... partly cloudy, temps in the low-60s and light and variable winds.  
Saturday... mostly cloudy, possible showers later in the day (30% chance), temps in the low-70s and S-SE winds.  Saturday night... cloudy, temps in the low-60s with S-SW winds at 5-10mph. 
Sunday... starting out cloudy with peeks of sun coming in a bit later, there's a 20% chance of rain showers, temps in the low-70s and S-SE winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday night... cloudy with 50% chance of rain, temps in the low 60s with S-SE winds at 10-15mph. 
Monday... rain (50% chance), temps in the upper 60s and S-SE winds at 10-20mph. The Full Moon is tomorrow by the way... remember those higher than normal tides and the occasional and possible coastal flooding.

Hazy Tuesday - It's That Foggy Time Of Year

Mornin'!  It's 54° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining in the hazy sky.  I want to say that it's shining in the deep blue sky, but the sky is basically white this morning.  The sun is trying to make it through as my house is glowing in brightness.  Breezes are barely there out of the South at 2-3mph.  We could see areas of patchy fog again this morning (there was dense fog outside around bedtime last night).  Expect a partly sunny / partly cloudy day.  Temps will be in the mid-60s with Southerly winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... mostly clear, temps in the mid-50s and S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... same as today, possible fog in the mix, partly sunny / partly cloudy, temps in the mid-upper 60s and South winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow night... partly cloudy, temps in the low-60s and S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Thursday... starting out mostly sunny, becoming cloudy with rain due in the afternoon (50% chance), temps in the mid-70s and SW winds at 8-10mph.  As for the upcoming holiday weekend, it's a little far out to be certain but in a nutshell:
Friday: partly to mostly cloudy, temps in the low-70s with light winds
Saturday: cloudy, 40% chance of rain, temps in the mid-60s with light winds
Sunday: sunny, temps around 70° with light winds / 50% chance of rain Sunday night

Hereford Lighthouse - North WW
Mornin'!  Happy Birthday to the Hereford Lighthouse who is celebrating its 150th birthday today!  There's a party on the lighthouse grounds from 12-3 today!  I hear there's free hotdogs and ice cream along with lots of other fun things to see and do (111 N. Central Ave.)
It's 46° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly through the blue, clear sky.  Winds are out of the N-NE at 10-15mph.  There's a chill in the salty air this morning.  As the sun's glow begins shining through the windows of my home, I can already feel the warmth!  It's been cold, raw and damp the last couple days here on the island but today... we're warming up again somewhat.  Expect a sunny Saturday with temps around 60° and North winds becoming East this afternoon at 10-15mph.  Tonight... clouds filter in and increasing after midnight.  There's a 50% chance of rain.

A Crapola Friday

Mornin'!  It's 53° in Wildwood NJ.  It's wet, windy and wild outside this morning.  We're under heavy cloud cover as we had thunder-boomers during the night and early morning with lightning and thunder, as well as short bursts of heavy rain and strong winds.  It's not raining at the moment, but the strong winds out of the E-NE at 20-25mph +gusting are steam rolling over us and seem to have dried things up a bit as the street is barely wet.  These winds are strong and loud as they've been keeping me awake since very early this morning and will be continuing like this all throughout the day.  Expect clouds and strong winds (E-NE at 25-35mph +gusting) with temps in the mid-upper 50s.  Showers are on tap this afternoon (50% chance).  Tonight... there's a Coastal Flood Warning posted (8pm-4am) due to that "New Moon" earlier this week and the wind-driven waters surrounding us.  It'll be cloudy with gusty winds, 25% chance of rain showers, temps in the upper 40s and NE winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... partly sunny, temps in the upper 50s and E-NE winds much calmer at 10-15mph.  Sunday... rain (60% chance), temps in the upper 50s and SE at 10-15mph.  As for that Coastal Flood Warning... be aware of the high tide times, low-lying areas on the island, and what parts of the island are susceptible to flooding. And remember that the back of the island (marsh-bay side) has high tide an hour later than the ocean's high tide.  Be safe!

Mornin'!  It's 59° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and doing her best to shine through the morning haze.  Winds are out of the South at 10-15mph.  It's a bit on the cool side and everything's still dripping wet from the overnight dew.  That ocean's keeping us moist.  It'll be hazy this morning becoming partly cloudy with peeks of sunshine but there's a slight chance of a passing shower (20% chance).  Temps will rise into the mid-upper 70s with S-SW winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy with increasing clouds overnight, we could again see a passing rain shower (20% chance) with temps down into the low-60s and W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy with 50% chance of rain by the afternoon.  We could see some severe thunderstorms.  Temps will be in the mid-upper 60s with East winds at 10-20mph.

More Dampness - New Moon Tuesday

Mornin'!  It's the New Moon today!  It's not a visible moon but does create higher than normal tides.  It's 64° in Wildwood NJ.  We've got the clouds again as it's gray and still.  Winds are barely there out of the North at 1-2mph.  Expect areas of patchy fog this morning and mostly cloudy skies today.  Temps will be in the mid-60s with E-NE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... cloudy.  There's 50% chance of rain after midnight with temps in the upper 50s and S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy start, followed by partial clearing and gradually becoming sunny, temps in the low-mid 70s with SW winds at 10-15mph.  There's a 30% chance of rain tomorrow night.  There's 80% chance of rain on Thursday.  There's a 40% chance on Friday.  Saturday looks to be mostly sunny with temps in the upper 60s.  I thought April brings the showers and the May flowers.  May's doing April's job that's for sure.  We've been wet, dank, and damp lately and flowers are null and void.  I almost forget that dry, light airy, blue sky feeling that we should be having.

Mornin'!  Happy Cinco De Mayo!  May's moving right along at a decent clip.  She's bringing some crapola weather right along with her.  It was so much brighter, warmer and summer-like at the end of April.  I may as well mention that the week ahead isn't looking too appealing.  It'll be cloudy and rainy every day next week except for Wednesday which will be partly sunny.  I'm getting ahead of myself.  The reason I'm getting a late start on the blog today is the weather. I went right to the gym first thing (I got a gym membership from hubby for Christmas) and took full advantage of the lousy weather and did my thing. Walking and/or bicycling isn't happening for me on the streets of Wildwood when it's misty, drippy, windy, and miserable.  There's a good chance I may be at the gym every day this coming week due to this weather.  One thing's for sure, it's been chilly in the house (my house feels the chill more than most) and I'm not turning the furnace back on.  It's been off for weeks and after May 1st, the furnace isn't an option.  I do have a gas fireplace which is a blessing when it becomes too uncomfortable.  Long pants and sweatshirts seem to have been the norm around here. 
Happy Sunday!  It's 58° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels like 53° with the SE winds at 15-20mph.  It's cloudy but at the moment I swear Ms Sun's trying to break through as that gray dimness outside is slowly evaporating and inside my house is brightening.  I'm not getting too excited though as it's supposed to be overcast today with 25% slight chance of rain showers, temps in the low-60s and S-SE winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy, 55% chance of rain with temps in the upper 50s and Southerly winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy, possibly rainy (40% chance) with temps in the mid-60s and Southerly winds at 5-10mph.  Finishing on a good note, Wednesday... my house will have windows open again, as it'll be partly sunny, 75° and W-SW breezes at 10-15mph.

Not A Total Washout

Mornin'!  It's 49° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under gray skies and thick clouds with winds out of the East at 10-15mph.  No rain yesterday or overnight, but there's a 40% chance of rain beginning this afternoon.  Temps will be in the low-mid 50s with East winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... still cloudy with 25% chance of rain, temps in the low-50s and East winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... considerable cloudiness, occasional rain in the late afternoon (40% chance), temps in the low-60s with E-SE winds at 10-20mph.  Monday... possibly waking to rain (50% chance), skies clearing by late afternoon but by the overnight into Tuesday... more rain on and off (60% chance) with temps in the low-60s.  Speaking of Tuesday, it's the New Moon and it's already creating higher than normal tides during high tide times.  Say that 5 times fast.  Stay aware of those high tide times in case we get some of that ol' tidal/coastal flooding.  Know those low-lying areas!

May's In The House

Mornin'!  Happy May!  It's the first of May and known as May Day around the world. 
It's 57° in Wildwood NJ.  May Day is starting out gray here on the island.  Winds are barely there out of the NE at 2-4mph.  These thick, morning clouds will give way to sunshine any time now as we're going to have a sunny 1st day in May.  Winds will be out of the SE at 10-15mph.  Temps will just about tap 70°.  Sounds like a perfect start to May if you ask me.  I can tell you the seagulls once again are already showing their happiness this morning with their loud, competitive chatter and laughter.  Tonight... a few clouds filter in as temps drop into the mid-50s with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... partly cloudy, temps near 70° and Southerly breezes at 10-20mph.  As for this coming weekend, it looks like Saturday will be cooler with temps in the upper-50s as it'll be cloudy and breezy with 25% chance of rain.  We'll  have 60% chance of rain on Saturday night.  Sunday... looks like a washout with rain first thing in the morning and then all day into the night, temps in the low-60s with SE winds.

Last Day Of April

City Hall - North WW (my name's engraved on that clock) 

Mornin'!  April's coming to a close today.  As usual... grateful for her kindness in the weather department and providing us with all the flowers from the showers. 
It's 64° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and in the hazy sky.  Breezes are out of the SW at 9-10mph.  The Seagulls are at it again and waking anyone who's still asleep with their loud chatter and laughter (and mating calls).  It'll be another nice day but not as hot as yesterday.  Believe it or not, we had a high of 85° yesterday.  And, that came with humidity.  We had a preview of summer for sure.  I can vouch for it as my porch thermometer is accurate.  And, it couldn't have been any more perfect weather to scrub, hose down, wipe and prep the ol' outdoor shower.  Unlike yesterday, today will be partly sunny with some clouds in the mix and not as warm... temps in the low-mid 70s and S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... cloudy with a 25% chance of rain, temps in the upper 50s and SW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... 30% chance of rain (mostly in the morning) with partly sunny / partly cloudy skies by the afternoon, temps in the low-mid 60s and E-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Thursday... a mix of sun and clouds, temps in the mid-60 with S-SE winds at 5-10mph.  Until next year, see you on the other side April!
