Wet And Windy Wednesday

Mornin'!  It's 52° in Wildwood NJ.  It's not raining yet but it's coming!  Winds have arrived (they began during the night)... S-SW at 20-25mph +gusting.  They're surrounding my house and howling as I type.  I'm telling ya... those March winds are getting closer and closer!  It'll be rainy and windy today with temps in the mid-50s and S-SW winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  Everything outside is wet and covered  with the ocean's mist thanks to the winds but scattered rain showers are due in later this morning, then scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.  Tonight... more steady rain as temps drop into the low-30s with SW winds still checked in at 25-30mph +gusting (we could feel 45mph gusts).  Tomorrow... mostly sunny with temps in the low-mid 40s and NW winds at 15-20mph +gusting.  Friday... mostly sunny, temps in the upper 40s and South winds at 5-15mph.  Saturday... rain, temps around 50° with SE winds at 10-20mph.  Sunday... starting out raining, becoming mostly cloudy, temps around 50° with E-NE winds at 10-15mph.

Mornin'!  It's 45° in Wildwood NJ.  It's mostly cloudy as Ms Sun is trying to brighten things but the clouds seem to be more prevalent this morning.  Winds are out of the South at 9-11mph.  Strap in... we're about to have a couple tumultuous weather days as March peers in.  Expect a mostly cloudy day today with peeks of sunshine this morning and rain and wind beginning later this afternoon.  Temps will be mild as they rise into the low-50s.

Monday Mix With A March Countdown

This Morning's Webcam Shot - North WW

Mornin'!  It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels like 36° with the winds out of the S-SW at 10-15mph.  It's partly cloudy with Ms Sun up over the horizon shining brightly but she's sitting right below a line of clouds.  She is painting the clouds and sky with her rays making things lovely as she does.  Seems that we're going to have a mix of sun and clouds today with temps tapping 50° and S-SW winds at 15-20mph making it feel more like 40°.  Tonight... partly cloudy, thicker clouds on the overnight, temps in the low-40s and South winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... 50% chance of rain showers, mostly in the afternoon, temps in the low-50s and blustery winds out of the South at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow night... 60% chance of rain, temps in the upper 40s and still blustery with South winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  It's just March rearing its ugly "very windy" head.  I've been trying to mentally prepare for March but it's not easy.  There's no doubt I'll be screaming (once again) into the intense March winds to "shut up" but not that respectfully.

Presidents Weekend

Mornin'!  It's 34° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels more like 27° with the windchill.  Winds are currently out of the N-NW at 10-15mph.  We're under thick cloud cover and we have the ol' layer of white stuff outside.  Thankfully not much; just a coating.  Everything other than the sidewalks and streets are covered in white... shrubs, lawns, roofs, cars etc.  The streets are clear.  I'm assuming by the looks of things and today's forecast that this (not such a) badboy storm is outta here.  We can expect a cloudy morning, followed by a partly cloudy afternoon.  Gusty winds are coming though  (NW 20-30mph +gusting) and even the possibility of a few flurries or snow showers is possible.  Temps will be around 40° feeling more like 29°.  Tonight... some cloud cover, temps in the upper 20s and W-NW winds at 15-25mph.  Tomorrow... sunny, a few passing clouds are in the mix with a high of 44° and SW winds at 15-25mph +gusting.  Higher wind gusts possible.  Monday... sunny, temps in the mid-40s and much calmer winds (NW at 5-10mph).  Happy Presidents Day Weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day!


Mornin'!  It's Valentine's Day!  It's my 57th Valentine's Day with the man who holds the key to my heart! Talk about a lifetime of blessings.  Realizing that and being grateful everyday sums it all up.
Winter seems to be back in Wildwood!  Thankfully, storm Lorraine only provided us with some minor tidal flooding and off and on rain showers along with windy conditions unlike the Pocono's, New York and the New England area which did receive a measurable amount of snow. As for Wildwood... it's a new day and the storm's long gone. It's 37° in Wildwood NJ. It's dry.  It feels like 28° with the windchill due to the W-NW winds at 20-25mph.  It's partly cloudy with Ms Sun up and trying to show herself but the clouds have so far won this morning's competition.  She'll provide a mostly sunny day once these morning clouds check out.  Temps will be in the upper 30s with blustery NW winds at 20-30mph +gusting making it feel like the 20's.  Tonight... clear sky, temps in the mid-upper 30s and NW winds at 10-20mph.  Tomorrow... clouds and sun, turning cloudy in the afternoon, temps in the low-40s and S-SW winds at 10-20mph.  Friday... mostly sunny and blustery with temps around 40° and W-NW winds at 20-25mph.  As for this upcoming Holiday weekend... Saturday could have snow showers (60% chance) early in the day, peeks of sun later in the afternoon with temps around 40° and NW winds at 20-30mph.  Sunday... partly sunny, temps in the low-40s and winds at 10-20mph.  Monday... sunny, temps in the mid-40s and much calmer breezes.

It's Fat Tuesday

Mornin'!  Happy Mardi Gras! Time to make the donuts!  It's 41° in Wildwood NJ.  It feels like 30° due to the windchill.  Winds are howling and are currently out of the NE at 25-35mph +gusting.  It's raining hard as well as sideways.  Storm Lorraine's checked in and by the looks of things, we won't be getting what Allentown or the Pocono's are currently getting... the ol' white stuff.  The Pocono Mountains are due to get 9"!  We still have a "Coastal Flood Advisory" posted due to those wind-driven rains pushing the waters surrounding us onto our beaches and streets. The Advisory is until 3AM tomorrow morning.  Be aware of those high-tide times and know your low-lying areas.  Expect periods of rain this morning with a wintry mix thrown in later this morning and/or early afternoon.  We'll more than likely not going to see any snow cover or accumulation.  By mid-day, it'll begin to clear and dry out as the clouds will give way for Ms Sun to shine through.  The winds aren't going anywhere.  Expect temps in the  low-mid 40s (feeling like the low-30s) with the windchill... N-NW at 25-35mph +gusting as high as 50mph.  Tonight... clear, gusty winds, temps in the low-30s and W-NW winds at 20-30mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... mostly sunny and still blustery with NW winds at 20-30mph +gusting and temps around 40°.  Tomorrow night... clear and cold (36° feeling like 26°).  Forget making those donuts today as I already made a King Cake over the weekend. Plus this weather warrants yet another "Soup Making Day" and today's soup choice is "Escarole (aka Italian Wedding) Soup".

New Moon Friday

Today's Webcam Shot - North WW
Mornin'!  It's 44° in Wildwood NJ.  We're under cloud cover with winds out of the South at 10-15mph.  It's damp and raw outside.  Ms Sun's supposed to show up sometime later this morning or at least by this afternoon.  Temps will be unseasonable warm again reaching 50° with those Southerly (more blustery) winds at 10-20mph.  Tonight... partly cloudy skies, giving way to cloudy skies, temps in the low 40s with S-SW winds at 5-10mph.  Tomorrow... cloudy, temps in the low-mid 50s and SW winds at 5-10mph with 20% chance of rain showers.  Tomorrow night... cloudy, temps in the low-40s and West winds at 5-10mph.  Sunday... rain beginning in the morning and ending by later in the afternoon, temps in the upper 40s and N-NW winds at 5-10mph.  It's the New Moon which promoted an Active Alert today... "Coastal Flood Advisory" until this afternoon.  I just looked out my front window to check Otten's Harbor which should be high enough to cross over the bulkhead and there's no tide water on the street at all.  I think we're in the clear as the next high tide isn't until 8PM tonight (actually 9PM as the harbor's high tide is an hour later than the ocean's high tide).  The New Moon has the same affect on our tides as the Full Moon but I'm going with... we're in the clear with this Moon phase and the Advisory posted.  Today is 60 years that the Beatles hit our coast and performed on the Ed Sullivan show.  I had already owned their album then.  It's one of those moments that changed and shaped my life.  I can only equate it with having four Taylor Swift's on stage.  I've been a Beatles fan my entire life.  I probably could do a blog just about the Beatles in my life.  I'm actually listening to "Meet The Beatles" as I type!  Happy Friday!

Lovely Hump Day

Mornin'!  It's 35° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly!  It feels like 29° with the windchill due to the N-NE breeze at 5-10mph.  It'll be mostly sunny with some of those milky clouds in the mix today.  Temps will be in the mid-40s with NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tonight... clear, starlit skies, temps in the mid-30s with light and variable breezes.  Tomorrow... sunny with a few afternoon clouds, temps in the mid-upper 40s and light and variable winds.  Friday... mostly sunny, upper 40s and light Southerly breezes.  Saturday... overcast with gray skies and 25% chance of rain showers, temps in the low-50s and SW breezes at 5-10mph.  Sunday... waking to rain, mostly cloudy day with temps around 50° (no typo) and W-NW winds at 5-10mph.  This week marks 14 years that we had one of the worst winter storms (aka Snowmageddon) in Wildwood's history.  It was on Super Bowl weekend too.  It actually was 2 storms (Feb 5th and 6th and again Feb 9th and 10th) the latter being the worst here along the coast.  We received  almost 2" of snow an hour.  There was at least 18" of snow much of which was even higher drifts due to the storm's intense winds. The houses were varnished with an icy/snowy shell.  I can only equate it to The Shining.  Wildwood was pummeled and the island was left without power for days. It was an incredible test of endurance.  My neighborhood... 6 days of icy, cold darkness.  On the bright side... that storm provided that very moment that my hubby and I made the decision that as soon as we could, we were going to head  to Key West.  Two months later we were arriving in Key West for the very first time enjoying the warm tropics. We have vacationed there over 10 times since then.  At this time, Kayden (the next winter storm) is on the move in this direction.  The weather officials are saying it could arrive here along the Coast by next week sometime (possibly Tuesday). So far, it appears that these warmer temps will bring rain not the white stuff.  Today's focus is that another winter's beauty is ahead and that lovely walk I'll be taking in a little while!

The Sunshine Keeps Pouring Down!

Mornin'!  It's 31° in Wildwood NJ.  Ms Sun is shining brightly in the clear, blue sky.  It feels like 24° with the windchill as N-NE winds at 10-15mph are checked in.  It'll be another sunny albeit blustery day for the weather books.  Expect plentiful sunshine, temps in the low-40s (with a windchill) and NE winds at 10-25mph.  Tonight... clear, starlit skies, temps in the low-30s (just about what they are now) and N-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... sunny along with a few passing clouds, temps in the mid-40s and NE winds at 10-15mph.  Thursday... sunny, temps in the mid-40s and barely a breeze.  I just might be pulling out my warm scarf today for my beach walk!  😉

Another Winter Beauty

Winter - 2009
Mornin'!  It's 35° in Wildwood NJ.  It's feeling like 30° with the N-NE winds at 5-10mph.  Ms Sun's up and shining brightly!  Well, this past Thursday, Saturday and Sunday were full of sunshine and today, tomorrow and Wednesday will be no different.  We're in "Sunshine Mode" there's no question about it!  It's cold out there but it's heading for another day of warm sun and temps in the mid-40s.  We'll have those NE winds at 5-10mph.  Tonight... clear skies, temps around 30° and N-NE winds at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... another sunny day with temps around 40°, and NE winds a bit stiffer at 10-20mph.  Even with experiencing the Winter season here down the Shore, that sunshine almost always changes everything when the temps are relatively mild. The vivid clear blue sky, the warmth of the winter sunshine and lest not forget that wonderful sea air makes Winter so much more enjoyable.  I don't miss the island covered in snow or the  frozen conditions that winter can bring.  I have much to be thankful for so far this season. 42 days until Spring!

It's Groundhog Day

Mornin'!  It's 42° in Wildwood NJ.  It's gray and cloudy once again.  We're under rain clouds that were causing rain throughout the night and into the early morning.  It's not raining at the moment but we're saturated.  Expect a cloudy Friday with occasional rain showers.  Temps will be in the mid-40s with N-NW winds at 10-15mph.  Chance of rain is 60%.  Tonight... cloudy in the earlier part of the evening with skies clearing after midnight.  Temps will drop into the low-30s.  Winds will be out of the North at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... sunny and bright with temps in the low-40s and North winds at 10-15mph.  Sunday... another sunny day with temps in the low-40s and North winds at 5-10mph.  Punxsutawney Phil (the world's most famous groundhog) did NOT see his shadow this morning which means that we're about to have an early Spring.  It's folklore folks!  What's not folklore is there are 45 days until Spring.
