The water temp in the English Channel has begun to rise above 50F. This is the natural spring-time tendency of the channel and it’s great news for us swimmers. NOAA shows us water temps, conditions and neat little graphs that I wish had a longer time-scale.
|Wind Direction (WDIR):||SSW ( 210 deg true )|
|Wind Speed (WSPD):||15.9 kts|
|Wave Height (WVHT):||3.3 ft|

[UPDATE] Another online service provides a color map of sea temperatures.
Special thanks for Mark Robson (fellow blogger and Channel aspirant) for clueing us in on the NOAA website and the color map.
