The climate of Ocean City (Maryland - United States of America)
Ocean City is located in the western part of Maryland on the Atlantic Ocean. Ocean City is also known as the OC, one of the largest resorts in America. During the summer about 350,000 people stay here while during the winter the city is home to only 7,500 people. The most important attraction in Ocean City is its pier. Every day thousands of people come here to stroll along the small gift shops and visit the small amusement park which can be found here. Another main source of income is fishing. White and blue marlins are caught here. Ocean City has a warm maritime climate strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The temperature of the Ocean is fairly cool all year round. Summers are warm. However, precipitation figures are high. Because of the influence of the Atlantic Ocean winters are fairly mild. During the winter precipitation may fall in the form of snow. However, the amount of snow that falls varies per year. Tropical storms and hurricanes are uncommon here.
