The Weather Page

Henry Seim of Parkville says the Weather Page "sometimes gives different ocean temperatures and wave heights between Ocean City and Assateague Island. How could that be when the island is only about 1,000 feet south of Ocean City?" Wave height data for both come from a data buoy 15 miles off Fenwick so predictions should agree unless forecasters tweak one. O.C. water temperatures are measured several feet below the same buoy. Assateague's come from Chincoteague Bay, 17 miles south of the inlet.
