Beach Water Temperatures



Beach water temperatures can vary greatly throughout the year. Most of the year though, beach water temperatures gradually change. A sharp cold front, hurricane, movement of the Gulf Stream, or rivers that flow into the ocean can cause the water temperatures to change much more rapidly. Also, small warm or cold water eddies in the ocean or Gulf of Mexico can change the water temperature rapidly. This is where a small pocket of warmer or colder water breaks off from the main current. Water temperature changes of five to ten degrees can occur over relatively shorts distances such as ten or twently miles.

To keep an eye on fluctuating beach water temperatures, our beach water temperature page can help you keep an eye on the surf water temperature at your favorite resort or beach before traveling. Water temperatures are targeted for vacationers and are updated all year for Florida, southern California, Puerto Rico / Virgin Islands, Bermuda, and Hawaii. The Southeastern and Gulf of Mexico beaches are updated from April 1 through the summer. Other locations including the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southern California are updated during the summer vacation period. Beach water temperature averages are included for locations for popular beach vacation spots. The average temperatures can give a good estimate of what you can expect in the case that a current water temperature reading is not available.
