White Park Bay Water Temperature and Wetsuit Guide

(Antrim, Ireland)

Today's White Park Bay sea temperature is 14.1 °C.

Statistics for 25 Sep (1981–2005) – mean: 13.7 °C, range: 12.8 °C to 14.6 °C

The water temperature (14 °C) at White Park Bay is not too cold today but the windchill (4 °C) will make the air temperature seem much colder than the sea and it is forecast to be cloudy too so a chilly prospect. You'll need at least a hooded spring wetsuit to keep surf at White Park Bay today, maybe neoprene boots and gloves too.

White Park Bay 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.

White Park Bay sea temperatures peak in the range 13 to 17°C (55 to 63°F) on around the 17th of August and are at their coldest on about the 25th of February, in the range 6 to 9°C (43 to 48°F). The warmest sea temperatures at White Park Bay in the middle of August are ideally suited to a 4/3mm wetsuit + 3mm boots, although a 5/3mm wetsuit may be preferable for longer sessions and cold windy days. The coldest sea temperatures at White Park Bay mean that you will need a flexible 6/5/4mm wetsuit or a well fitting 5/4mm wetsuit with gloves and 5mm neoprene booties and a hood to surf here in late February.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at White Park Bay 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 White Park Bay.
