Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Thursday May, 17th
Short Term Forecast
Currently we have an old frontal boundary hanging around creating unsettled weather for the region. Light ENE winds will keep the 1′-2′ surf on the bumpy side. Another frontal boundary is forecast to move into the region Friday bringing more unsettled weather and stronger ENE winds. The surf will build through the afternoon Friday with wave heights in the 3’+ range by early evening.
Saturday, a warm front is forecast to lift through the region followed by another cold front Sunday/Monday. We should see wave heights in the 3′-4′ zone through the weekend with a few pockets of cleaner surf… Light E winds are forecast Saturday, SSW winds are expected Sunday and WSW winds Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday another frontal boundary may approach the region setting up possible SSW winds swell.
Water Temp: 58 degrees
Towards the back half of next week the forecast is calling for SUN…. Thats, right the SUN may return as we head into Memorial Day Weekend…. We will be watching the Tropics late next week as an area of Low Pressure is forecast to move up into Florida!
