    40s here in NH. Water has not hit 39 degrees yet. Usually it is now around 35 degrees.
    Global warming!! I love it. Please buy a huge SUV and spew out CO2.
    Cannot wait to see coconut trees (palms) growing on the shores of New Hampshire!!

    The water temps on the Delmarva have never really dipped below the low 40s this winter, after spending a couple of months in the mid 30s the three previous three winters. It made a huge difference to me anyway....the nice weather helped a lot, but i don't care how nice it is outside....35 degree water kicks the **** out of you, cuts your sesh short, make you surf stiff and slow. 42-44 is just enough warmer that i rarely felt like the water temp was much of an issue.

    I surfed twice in the past week and during one session took off a glove to swim out with a cameras and shot pics for about 30 minutes and my hand felt fine....we're close to 50 IMO. The buoys are still reading mid-upper 40s but with the crazy warm air temps i think the surf zone is warmer.

    We got the exact opposite out here on the Left, it's been freezing balls out here (relatively speaking). Generally doesn't drop below 50 with the occasional 48-49. Been hovering around 45-47 all winter long. Got 6 inches of snow a few days ago, that never happens.

    Fuggin crazy winter

    45-47 water temps at the beginning of March here in NH coastal waters is a real heat wave!! That would mean 4/3 wetsuits, not the 6/4 I wore 2 days ago.

    And we saw a dolphin, which I think is the earliest dolphin sighting for me. Past years it has still been seals in early March.

    I surfed today. Probably the coldest water I've felt all winter but we had consistent NE winds over night through the day then it turned offshore so that was probably why. Still not bad though. I find the more calories I eat during the day the warmer I stay so I'll be carb loading for the next 6

    A mere 75*, one of warmest winters that I can remember, I have only wore a 3/2 a handful of times and twice was road trips to NSB. Most winter I wore a 1.5/1 wetsuit top, the coolest water temps this year here (south/central fl.) maybe 69*.

    Yeah. Thus the disclaimer of "relatively speaking". I know y'all get way colder water, pretty much from Maine to Folly.

    OTOH, our water rarely hits 60 in the summertime. Most of youse guys get it in the 70's and up.

    It's all relative

    Jersey hasn't been that bad .., but it's hard to judge due to the warmer air temps... and the laborador pee

    Usually end up sweeting so I guess it's been much warmer

    I love "global warming". Even though the hysterical biitches running around saying it is our fault, are gay as hell.

    They've been pretty warm this Winter, in comparison to years past. Or I guess mild is more the word, not that they've exactly been warm.

    Coldest it got this winter here is 41... about normal, but it was only that cold for about a week in late January, and now it's bouncing around there again. So, I'd say... the upper end of normal.
