*** Forecast - Our forecast for the water temperature

The actual temperatures close to the coast can deviate from the stated values ​​by a few degrees. This becomes noticeable after heavy rain or after long periods of strong wind. Some downstream winds create cold, deep water to replace surface water warmed by the sun.

To make a forecast, we use our own mathematical model that takes into account the current change in water temperature, historical data and the main weather trends, wind strength and direction, and air temperature in each region. We also consider dates for other resorts in United States.
