Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Sunday August 2nd.
“Thank you to those who have been shopping our small business this summer..”
We are open daily, Monday-Saturday 9AM-6PM and Sunday 10AM-6PM
Currently we are seeing lingering SSE longer period swell in the 2′-3′ range with a steady S wind. The winds look to stay SSW through the day Sunday with a slight increase expected during the afternoon. Tropical Storm Isaias will be impacting the East Coast Monday-Wednesday. We will see conditions worsen through the day on Tuesday as Isaias nears New Jersey. The Storm is forecast to hug the coast as it moves North. Due to the track of this storm our swell window will be short. Wednesday AM is looking best with possible light WSW winds. This could all change in a day as the track of Isaias becomes more clear… We will also be watching the Western Atlantic for more Tropical development… Thursday/Friday we could see a pulse of mid period SSE swell energy in the 2′-4′ zone, this could push into the weekend..!
Ocean Temp: 70-75 degrees
S winds are forecast through the day with wave heights in the 2′-3′ zone.
Winds will increase through the day from the SSW, wave heights look to be in the 2′-3′ zone..
Conditions through the day will worsen a Isaias moves closer to NJ. The surf will be approaching from the South and is expected to pass over NJ through the early evening hours. High Tide is around 8:55 PM so if your street is prone to flooding watch your vehicle. Look for the surf to build through the afternoon… 3′-5’+
We are forecasting light WSW winds with lingering South Swell and background SE swell.. Wave heights look to be in the 3′-5′ zone with clean conditions early. The winds may trend a bit more SW through the afternoon.
The winds are forecast to be from the ENE through the day Thursday, which is good in that if we have upwelling from the previous days WSW winds the water temp will warm back up…. We are expecting to see wave heights in the 2′-3′ zone. Friday will see lighter winds from the East and surf heights in the 2′-3′ range. We will be watching the Western Atlantic for Tropical Activity.
Ocean Temp: 70-75
Upwelling is possible when Isaias pass by… Water Temps could drop to 60 degrees…!
