Surf Forecast

Hello, this is Andrew Funk with your Ocean City NJ Surf Forecast as of Thursday July 9th.

 

“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

A weak of fun surf looks to start Friday…  An are of Low Pressure is forecast to get better organized off the SE coast as it moves NE.  We can expect to see building SSE wind swell Friday with a steady E turning SE wind.  Depending on the track of Low Pressure we could see improving conditions before dark.  Wave heights look to build into the 5′-6′ range.  Low Pressure will exit the region by Saturday resulting in improving wind conditions.  We could see light SSW winds early Saturday before coming up during the afternoon.  The Atlantic ridge of High Pressure is forecast to push towards the East Coast which could interact with a weak frontal boundary just off the coast.  This could set up a steady flow of SSE swell energy, nothing huge but for July its a win….  This is forecast last through July 14th.

Ocean Temp: 70-75 degrees

Thursday:

Small 1′-2′ surf early building a bit late in the day, SSE winds are forecast around 10 MPH.

Friday:

Building SE swell is forecast through the day with increasing ESE winds expected, 15-25 MPH.  We could see more favorable winds before dark.  Wave heights look to be in the 5′-6′ zone.  High Tide:  12:15PM

Saturday:

Lighter SSW winds are forecast but depending on the track of the Low we could see a more WSW wind…  Winds speeds are forecast around 15 mph.  We are forecasting semi-clean 4′-5′ surf, low tide is around 6:30AM so an incoming tide will help the surf…  High Tide: 1:30pm

Sunday:

Light West winds are forecast through the morning hours…. Conditions look good except for the early low tide, 7:20AM… The surf will hold and be pretty consistant with sets in the 3′-4’+ zone…

Monday – Wednesday:

A steady flow of SSE swell energy is possible with wave heights in the 3′-4′ zone expected…  Some standout sandbars will see slightly larger surf than forecast.  Local winds will generally be light during the morning hours with a steady Seabreeze during the afternoons.

Ocean Temp:  70-75

Upwelling is possible over the weekend…!
