Understanding The Winds?

Strange day on the water yesterday. On one of the hottest days of the year, the water temps dropped about 10 degrees (I think) in shallow water off a public sandy beach. That brought the fish back in close to shore and we had a killer day.  Bass crushing schools of large bait for hours on end, not sure what kind though.


Can someone explain this phenomenon to me? There is no current to speak of on this beach...

happens alot on cape cod outer beach.  its a phenomenon called upwelling that often occurs after strong winds push the warm surface water off the shoreline and cold water from deeper out comes into fill in the area.  for example, on the outer cape with a east to northeast facing coastline upwelling will occur following strong SW winds.
