Andromeda Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on Surf-Forecast.com are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Andromeda sea water temperatures peak in the range 21 to 24°C (70 to 75°F) on around the 10th of February and are at their coldest on about the 14th of August, in the range 15 to 18°C (59 to 64°F). Andromeda sea water temperatures are always warm reach their highest in early to mid February. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The coldest seasonal sea water temperatures at Andromeda in mid August lend themselves to a 4/3mm wetsuit or a 3/2mm suit and 3mm neoprene boots.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Andromeda can vary by several degrees compared with these open water averages. This is especially true after heavy rain, close to river mouths or after long periods of strong offshore winds. Offshore winds cause colder deep water to replace surface water that has been warmed by the sun. Air temperature, wind-chill and sunshine should also be considered before deciding on the kind of wetsuit needed to stay warm when surfing at Andromeda.
