Eastern Water Temperatures in 2008

Some interesting data from NODC. Adam sent this to me, and I thought it would be interesting for everyone.

He was looking at because we’re looking for some nearby open water swims. Trouble is there aren’t any organized events until summer. The water temperatures in the East are sub-50F until April, which is chilly. It looks like we might plan a trip down to Florida in March. If you have suggestions please let us know.
