SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE

Our sea temperatures have a fluctuating range of plus or minus 5 degrees F or 2 degrees C. This is because the water temperatures below the surface are usually colder than the surface. In our area the average temperature at 17 fathoms (100 feet or 30 metres) for this time of year is about 34.9oF (1.6oC). However, with our large tidal range and frequent periods of high wind waves, the surface water will be mixed with the colder water below, therefore from time to time lowering the surface temperature to almost the same water temperature as at 100 feet.

The graph is the actual sea surface temperature as taken from the west wharf in Clark's Harbour on or around the dates shown.
