Re: Trend, Or Wobble? Wobble. this water temp is being read off the new ocean city inlet buoy. I just looked and this buoy is located actually on the very inside of the inlet (actually in the sound area). So, this may not be the best representation of the water temp right off the beach.
Re: Trend, Or Wobble? I was surfing OC,MD last weekend, and I had 35f one day, 40f the next, and my wrist thermometer is accurate, I have rated against computer SCUBA thermometers. As long as when I show up, the waves are really waist high or above when forecasted, and not ankle high, I'm happy.
Re: Trend, Or Wobble? Kneelo, and all this time I thought that monster mechanism on your wrist was a honkin' big butt watch. Boy was I wrong. Does that thing give you pressure read-outs at depth too? Micah, if that bouy is just inside the inlet, it's definitely affected by the outflow of warmer bay temps, but this is a good thing given sufficient time. Keep the new OC Bouy temp report, if only to keep us happy. It won't be much longer now.
Re: Trend, Or Wobble? MD, I have a lot of fun telling the boys back in Cali that the air was 25f, and the water was 40f sometimes in the winter, the waves were good, and I was out for three hours with only five other guys, LOL. They freakout.
