New Jersey Shore loses its tropical hue
The peak opportunity for Jersey Shore Instagram photos has passed.
But as water temperatures rose last week, the color began to fade.
The Press reported that the Atlantic was hottest on Thursday, at 78.3 degrees, around the time beach-goers said they noticed the color dull. Lacey told the newspaper that wind, currents and temperature caused the phytoplankton to disperse.
Still, the ocean remains clear.
