  Surf Forecast

Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Tuesday November 14th.

  Short Term Forecast

Good day everyone, the surf is on the small side at the moment with minor 1′ NE wind swell.  We are expecting NE wind swell to bump up just a bit Wednesday, 2′-3′ as the winds are forecast to increase from the NNE. West winds are forecast Thursday!


Current Conditions:

Small surf generally in the 1′-2′ range. Light North winds.  The surf may come up a bit late..

7- Day Outlook

High Pressure is forecast to slide in from the West overnight Tuesday into Wednesday resulting in an increase in NNE winds Wednesday.  Another reinforcing High Pressure is forecast to build in from the NW Thursday and Friday resulting in an offshore flow, WNW winds 10-15 mph.  High Pressure will slide off the coast late Friday into Saturday while a frontal boundary pushes towards the coast.  We can expect to see stronger SSW winds develop Saturday ahead of the passing front.  The front is forecast to pass off the coast overnight Saturday resulting in steady W winds Sunday.  High Pressure and a steady WNW flow is forecast into Monday and Tuesday next week!

NE to E winds are forecast through the day 10 -15 mph, we can expect to see choppy 2′-3′ surf with a few plus peaks late in the day.  Low Tide is around 11:15 AM


West winds are forecast through the day 10 – 20 mph, we can expect to see clean 2′-3′ surf with larger sets through the morning hours before Low tide; 12:30 PM.  A few sandbars may see a few fun peaks fill in with the afternoon incoming tide.


NW winds are forecast through the day around 15 mph, we are not expecting much surf maybe 1′-2′ background waves with incoming morning tide..  Look for the winds come around to the WSW late in the day.


Steady SSW winds are forecast through the day with rain developing late.  We are expecting the surf to build through the day 2′-4′ by days end.  Conditions will be on the choppy side…


We are forecasting West winds through the day 15 – 20 mph.  Look for lingering SSW wind swell running in the 2′-3’+ range especially through the morning..
