Chilly surf for spring break and an interesting weather map

Posted: Thursday, March 6, 2014 9:56 am

Spring breakers will encounter unusually chilly water if they try wading or swimming. The cold water is a direct effect of a prolonged period of below normal temperatures that appeared in November and stubbornly persisted into March. Ironically, while southeast Texas shivered during January, it was turned out to be the fourth warmest January of record for the globe. I guess we just got the “luck of the draw.”

Anyway, the Houston-Galveston National Weather Service office has a graphic highlighting the fact that this spring break will be unpleasant for those wishing to get in the surf. I guess it will be more like those polar plunges that some people take in the middle of winter than a pleasant dip in the Gulf.
