Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Wednesday evening Sept. 19th
Short Term Forecast
A weak area of Low Pressure has formed just off the East coast and is forecast to slowly move NE… The Low will interact with an area of High Pressure over the North Atlantic setting up a good size NE fetch…. We should see building ENE swell Thursday holding Friday and lingering into Saturday/Sunday. Monday a strong ridge of High Pressure is forecast to push down from Canada setting up another shot of ENE wind swell… So, we should see building ENE wind swell Monday/Tuesday with onshore winds.. Wednesday of next week a frontal boundary will push through the region setting up SSW winds…..
Look for fun surf building Thursday from the ENE with wave heights in the 3′-4’+ zone.. This will linger into Friday and hold into Saturday before fading Sunday… Locally winds will be onshore Thursday/Friday from the ENE to SSE and a brief NNW Saturday AM before going back NNE.. Sunday/Monday the winds look to increase 15-20 from the NE…
Generally, look for fun sized surf 3′-4’+ through the next several days…. Cleaner Saturday AM!
Current Water Temp: 75 degrees
We will keep an eye on Low Pressure off the East Coast for further development….
