Living in New Jersey and Eastern PA it is not uncommon for many of us to make the pilgrimage at least once every summer to go ‘Down the Shore’ for a day trip or extended stay. If you’ve been able to get there yet this season you have likely noted that the water is exceptionally warmer compared to more recent years.
With a Bermuda high stuck off the coast for weeks, ocean temps have warmed up nicely. However, while the warm water is great for summer fun, it is also a factor for fueling tropical storm development. Are you better prepared now then at this time nearly 4 years ago?
