  Surf Forecast

Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Monday March 19th

  Short Term Forecast



OK, another week and another round of wind, rain, snow, and waves!!!!!  Building NE wind swell is forecast Tuesday as Low Pressure slides off the Delmarva coast. This Low is forecast to intensify as another Low absorbs into it Wednesday… So, steady NE winds are forecast Tuesday and Wednesday AM with a turn to the North late Wednesday… Wave heights look to build into the 6′-8’+ range by Wednesday.. Conditions will begin to improve late Wednesday into Wednesday night.. Thursday, we are expecting primarily NW winds through the day.  This will make for really clean conditions, though through the morning hours there may still be some North in the wind… NW winds will remain through Saturday this week.. So, conditions look to stay clean with fun surf through Saturday… Sunday, another disturbance is forecast to impact the coastal region again..


Water Temp: 42 degrees 


 Extended Outlook

The long range models suggest a coastal Low every 6 days or so as we round out the back half of March!!
