Thread: water temp

    water temp

    How's the water feeling this week for you guys who have been out? Looking to come up to OC this weekend, and I know it was cold when Bertha came through, and it was pretty frigid the week before Bertha last time I was out.

    Cold currents

    In a word, Upwelling.

    While many of the examples are oriented to the west coast, the principals remain the same.

    We went out in Avalon on Monday and I thought it was the middle of winter. I could not believe how frigin cold it was. I got pins and needles in my feet and after the fourth duck dive I got a icecream headache. I cant remeber it ever being that cold in the middle of July. I hope it warms up sometime this summer.
