Above normal ocean temperatures reported

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) We've all heard of the record warmth that plagued the area in December but what a lot of people may not have taken note of was the fact that the warm air kept our ocean temperatures warm as well! 

The average temperature of our ocean water in December is 55 degrees. The last observation taken in December was 64 degrees! 9 degrees above normal! 

With the warmer than normal ocean temperatures it wasn't a surprise to see people playing in the ocean on Christmas day of 2015. Cold air is funneling in and ocean waters will begin to cool off.
