    water temp nj

    Yesterday the surf was fun, but i made the stupid mistake of not bringing my gloves, the water temp had to be close to 50 even. Will it still be that temp wednesday/thursday?

    those S/SW currents are the worst for water temps in the mid atlantic, because it is the optimal current direction to cause upwelling of deeper, colder water. Looks like same type of swell for mid week, so I'd expect similar water temps.

    In Delmarva, I was surfing near an inlet, and it was really, really warm, because the warm bay water was mixing in - prob could have trunked it. I later then surfed another spot and it was prob 10 degrees colder. It was a very dramatic difference.

    Me and a few buddies when out yesterday.....I had my boots and gloves cause i knew it would be cold from the direction of the swell. My buddy went in without gloves or boots. he lasted like 20 minutes. We called him peg leg for the rest of the day. so funny he couldn't even walk. The water was 50 here in central NJ. Comon summer i need to shed this neoprene.

    oc wasn't too bad. i get cold easily but i had a 4/3 and 5 mil boots and was fine. my hands were a little cold at frist. there was a bunch of different suits out there. short legs, short sleeves, 5/4/3s, basically anything you could think of. one guy was talking about going out in his shorts and a 1 mil top.

    sandy hook buoy says 62.

    44025 (long island) buoy says 60.

    fairly normal temps I'd say, just the upwelling that made it so cold yesterday.

    That inlet jetty water in July / August is like a bath.
