    St Lawrence water temp bouy "non-functional"

    I went to my normal site for water temp in the St Lawrence river for the first time this season (NDBC - Station ABAN6) only to find the message "The station is no longer supported by the sponsor and is non-functional. It has been disestablished and will not be restored."

    I know it is too early in the season to be thinking of diving wet but I was looking for some indication that things are getting there - and now this. Does anyone have an alternate source for water temperatures in the Kingston to Cornwall stretch of river?

    I found an answer to my own question.
    Water temp at Ogdensburg, NY CO-OPS Storm Surge Live Web Site

    Water temp at Alexandria Bay, NY CO-OPS Storm Surge Live Web Site

    Both showing temperatures in the low to mid 50's. A little low to dive wet, but getting there.

    If it helps any, water temp in the Port of Montreal was 19ºC last night... That's very decent in a wetsuit... A very thick wetsuit...

    I see I screwed up the links. Try these:
    Ogdensberg Composite Plot

    Alexandria Bay Composite Plot

    I don't know why Ogdensberg is reporting 53 and Alexandria Bay is at 60. Maybe AB is in shallow water or a calm bay so there isn't much water mixing.
