The annual New Jersey Jeep Invasion continues in Wildwood, NJ; as the event goes on, clouds are on the increase. Coastal communities in the Mid Atlantic have been socked-in with fog over the last 24 to 36 hours, and Wildwood is no exception. Jeep enthusiasts heading to the shore for the start of the event yesterday were probably surprised to see partly to mostly sunny skies in places like Philadelphia, southern New Jersey away from the coast, and northern Delaware….only to come to a wall of clouds and low fog at the immediate shore itself. More of the same will happen today, although the amount of clouds and their thickness today will be greater than they were yesterday.
While clouds will provide cover for the day, most showers and storms will remain away from Cape May County. However, it is now likely that some stray showers or storms will pass through Wildwood at some point during the day today. As such, Jeepers will need to keep those tops up if they want to stay dry. There is now a 60% chance that a quick shower or storm will move through today. Remember: when thunder roars, head indoors. Staying inside an enclosed Jeep may be a safe alternate if you’re stuck on the beach when these storms approach.
Fortunately, it won’t be a wash-out and most of the day –and the balance of the event– will remain dry.
