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. 
High Tides: 11:02AM and 11:22PM

Ocean Temp: 62°
Sunrise: 5:37AM
