new and improved source for ocean temperatures

We received some reports of misaligned ocean temperature data for some of our forecast areas, and lo' and below we noticed that one of our ocean temperature resources was showing large biases.

So, we found another resource that looks on point, and have plugged this into We are happy so far with what we see with the ocean temperatures, but please let us know if you see any oddities for your home area. Unfortunately, we cannot, however do anything about the water temps still hanging in the lower 40s in the Northeast US.

FYI - The ocean temperatures that show on the surf forecast pages are pulled from near shore buoys if there area any buoy stations that record water temperature in the immediate vicinity. Otherwise the water temperature is derived from a mixed data set of satellite and observational data.
