    Water Temp...

    Buoy #44009 said the water temp was 66 at 7:50AM but it says it's jumped to 76.8 at 2:50PM. Micah, any explanation? Maybe the surface temperature just changed considerably because of the heat or possibly a swell direction change and it picked up some of the gulf stream? Just curious.

    77 degrees - holy crap - thats awesome!!

    Its got to be an ocean current change. Maybe a branch off of the Gulf stream - seems very possible. Check out the ocean temp maps, you'll see the gulf stream kind of meandering this way.

    water temp still at 73 this afternoon on 44009. While this is 20 miles off the coast, it may be time to bust out the board shorts!

    Board Shorts are a GO!

    We were out this weekend with rash guards, boards shorts, no gloves...still kept the booties. It was REAL nice

    why the hell are you wearing booties with a rash guard and board shorts. Thats funnier than an hippo humping a palm tree. vb has been in board shorts for 2 weeks now, but unfortunately we had to lose the booties a while back. I do have a quick question though; How do you keep your booties from filling up with water??? Do you tape them to your leg or something????

    i went for a swim after work yesterday, in fenwick, and while cool, it was certainly trunkable/comfortable (no thermometer, but i would guess upper 60's-70). by the time we get waves, and assuming there is no upwelling, trunks should be the call throughout the midatlantic.
