Thread: so cold!

  1. #1

    so cold!

    this is getting ridiculous,i had to wear booties near the end of june, when will the water get warm??? and im guessing the cold water is form upwelling right?

    also one more question, shouldn't warm water come with south winds? and north winds come with cold water? but it doesn't seem to be the case...

    NO! Cold water comes in with a S/SE swell. It pushes out the warm water out to sea and reverse for NE/E.

    we've talked about the cold water upwelling with S winds a lot in this forum. Do a Swellinfo forum search on upwelling and you'll find a bunch of threads.
