Why is Ocean City water so cold?
Blame it on the windThere's a process called upwelling at play, where deep, cold water rises to the ocean's surface. In the open ocean and along the shoreline, wind mixes the water around and brings water from the bottom of the ocean, which is cold and nutrient-rich, to the surface of the ocean.
Is 67 degree water cold?
Water conducts heat away from (or into) your body about 8 times faster than air at the same temperature, so we're much more sensitive to the water temperature. Anything below 70°F is cold when you get in and stays feeling cold.
