Surf Forecast

Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Wednesday, Feb 5th.

 

Good afternoon,

Currently we are seeing small 1′-2′ choppy surf hitting area beaches with ENE winds blowing around 10-15 mph.  We have a frontal system that will push towards the coast through the day on Thursday.  An area of Low Pressure is forecast to form along this Low just inland and intensify as it pushes NE.  The front is forecast to slide through our region late Friday…

As a result we will see the following..

Thursday:

We can expect to see wave heights in the 2′-3’+ range through the day.. A combination of ESE and S wind swell.  Larger sets are possible through the late afternoon..

Friday:

Low Pressure centered inland and its associated front are forecast to pass through our region during the afternoon… We will see wave heights in the 5′-6’+ range through the day with larger sets, 7’+ expected late.  Steady SSE winds are expected early, around 15 – 25 mph..  By midday the winds should turn a bit more WSW then hopefully West before dark…  So, best bet would be to plan for a possible afternoon surf with a potential clean up before dark…

Low Tide: 12:10 PM  High Tide: 6:00 PM

Saturday:

We can expect to see lingering SSE swell from the previous days action… Look for favorable WNW winds around 15 – 20 mph and 3′-5’+ surf with some plus sets at your better exposed beaches.

High Tide: 6:20 AM  Low Tide: 1:00 PM

Sunday:

Choppy 2′-3′ surf is forecast… NNE turning ENE winds are forecast through the day around 15 mph..

Monday:

Possible ENE swell from the departing Low Pressure that developed over the weekend.  Local winds are forecast to be SW around 15 mph.. Wave heights are forecast to be in the 2′-3’+ range..

Tuesday/Wednesday

Lingering ENE swell is possible with wave heights in the 1′-3′ zone forecast… Worth keeping an eye on conditions Tuesday as the winds are forecast NNW around 10 mph.. SSE winds are forecast Wednesday.

Ocean Temp:  43
