I know most of you have noticed that the reported temperature is not consistent with surf temperature. It's always been off.. I'm assuming the reported temperature is gathered from the offshore buoy 44009. I know for a fact that the surf temperature is much colder. We took thermo readings on assateague national side this weekend and got 58 on Saturday, 58 on Sunday, and 59 on Monday.
Id like to see a more accurate reading. What can be done? Or how can we get a more accurate reading in the surf area? Most of us don't need to know the offshore buoy..
Any thoughts? Not sure if this has already been a thread..
