  Surf Forecast

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

  Short Term Forecast


Hurricane/SubTropical/Tropical Storm Leslie will give us a final push of swell this weekend before fading next week!

Look for increasing swell through the day Friday with a fair bit of NE wind chop developing.. Wave heights in the 3′-4′ range is forecast… Cleaner conditions will be found at you more South facing beaches.


We are expecting a good pulse of swell to show from when Tropical Storm Leslie intensified into a Hurricane last week.. Look for consistent wave heights in the 5′-7′ zone through the day.  Light ESE winds are forecast around 10 mph.  Low Tide is around 11:45 AM.


A good amount of swell is still forecast with wave heights in the 4′-5′ zone.. SSW winds are forecast through the day only around 10 mph so conditions should not be too bad…  High tide: 6:30 AM


Lingering swell from Leslie is forecast with wave heights in the 3′-4′ range expected early then 2′-3’+ during the afternoon.. Variable winds are forecast through the morning hours with a light SE wind for the afternoon.


We are expecting to see lingering swell in the 2′-3′ range from Leslie with light SE winds forecast 5-10 mph

Current Water Temp: 72 degrees 


 Extended Outlook


The last pulse of swell from Leslie will linger Tuesday/Wednesday as High Pressure settles off the East Coast.  We will keep an eye on the Gulf coast region for a possible Tropical Storm developing.  Rain/Wind from this could make its way into our region late next week October 12th – 14th
