3rd Street Beach Wave Cam
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
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
