  Surf Forecast

Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Sunday July 15th

  Short Term Forecast


Currently we have 2′-3′ surf hitting the local beaches with a light SSW winds blowing.. The surf may slow down some as the tide fills up around 10:00 AM.. The surf should be fun through the outgoing tide today however the winds are forecast to turn a bit more S through the afternoon… A slow moving front is forecast to push towards the coast through the beginning of the upcoming week. High Pressure returns Wednesday/Thursday as another frontal boundary sets its eyes on the coast Friday/Saturday/Sunday…


Semi-clean surf through the morning hours with wave heights in the 2′-3′ zone… The winds are due to switch to the South late morning which will chop things up some…


SSW winds are forecast through the day around 15 mph.. Small surf is expected with wave heights in the 1′-2′ zone..


SSW winds are forecast again as the frontal boundary hits the coast. Look for short period wind swell, 2′-3’+ through the day… The winds may turn more W late in the day..


NNW winds are forecast through the day, 10-15 mph as High Pressure settles in.. Look for clean 2′-3′ surf through the day…


ENE winds are forecast 10-15 mph with 1′-3′ surf expected..


ESE winds are forecast through the day with 1′-3′ surf expected.


Unsettled weather to our South may spawn a weak Low off the coast.. We could see building ENE wind swell through the day, with 3′-5’+ surf possible..


SSW winds are possible as a stalled frontal system attempts to push off the coast.. A mix of ENE and SSW wind swell is forecast…. Wave heights, 3′-4’++


Current Water Temp: 74 degrees
