I was wondering if anyone knows of a good website to find/check on water temperatures. This would be a good resources to have, wouldn't you agree? I had found one a couple years ago, and I think it was a meteorological site, but it had water temps for most of the Atlantic coast, including bays and inlets. Unfortunately, when I got a new computer, I lost that link.

Thanks Steve. Since it is a boring Friday, I thought that I would do some research on the web to find other resources. Here is a list that I have been able to compile. The site with "*" next to it is really good.

http://www.hurricaneadvisories.com/coasttemp.html

http://marine.rutgers.edu/mrs/newevery.mab.html*
        -this is a really good visual site. Just click on one of the white links that start about 1/5 of the way down that page. Just a note, the bigger the "size" number, the better the data is. If you would like to see a larger or small area of the coast, go to: http://marine.rutgers.edu/mrs/sat.data2.html

You have to check this out if you crab in the Chesapeake Bay or any of its tributaries:

      - this link will provide a Chesapeake Bay Salinity Distribution and Current for both the surface water and bottom water. These models are put in motion, so you can see how the salinity is changing byu the hour and the associated flow. It is pretty cool.

Let's see, try this one:
Chesapeake Bay Observing System (CBOS)
They have 7-8 bouys, real-time data bouys, located throughout the Chesapeake Bay.  Believe only one is on line at this time; the others should be coming on line in the weeks ahead (they're taken off line when the bouys are pulled for the winter months).  Also, if you mouse the "Links" at the top of the CBOS Homepage, you'll find numerous other sources that provide real-time data links. Some of the links work, other do not. Now, for those folks that plan on crabbing the Chesapeake tomorrow (April 19), well, the mid-bay bouy (which is located off of Taylor Island) says the  water temperature at a depth of 10-12 feet is 32.4F/0.2C Shocked.  Surface water temp from another site had it at 46.4F/8C.  Despite the number of commerical crab pots that will be showing up in the bay in the days ahead, me thinks that the vast majority of the crabs are still snoozin' in the mud (Angry DARNIT!) and will continue to do so until the water temps hit the mid-50's in the shallows  Cry.
