Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, December 9 at 8:30 a.m.
Stop by while you’re out here surfing this week to grab a holiday gift for your favorite surfer!
Waves at the pier this morning are waist-to-chest high with a head high set in a very high angled north-east swell. There is a lot of current running down the beach, so get ready to paddle if you are surfing this morning.
Winds are north-east at 25 to 30 knots, and surf is very choppy and disorganized.
Look for surf to clean up some mid-afternoon when winds go north-west at 10 knots – increasing to 15 to 20 – but some current should continue down the beach all day.
High tide is at 9 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:12 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:04 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading a whopping 12 ft. at 9 seconds in an easterly wind swell.
We hope that this big, high-angled north-east wind swell will clean up some this afternoon as winds are forecast to go north-west, straight off-shore averaging 15 knots. There should be some sort of easterly swell in the water with clean conditions into the first half of the work week. Another storm system will roll through and push up choppy south wind waves Friday and into Saturday of next week. So there are some waves in the forecast. Come see us for some neoprene, because no one wants to surf in these conditions without a good wetsuit.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A strong low pressure system will move through the area today. High pressure will then gradually build from the west and persist through Thursday. A storm system will affect the area Friday and Friday night, followed by high pressure.”
It’s 49* and raining this morning. We are under a costal flood advisory. Look for a high of 60*, with rain abating and clouds after 2 p.m.
Water temperature has dropped to 56*.
Sunrise was at 7:10 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:13 p.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
