Good Morning. This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 8:15 a.m.
Surf at the Washout this morning is thigh to waist high with stomach-to-rib high sets. Rarely, there is a bigger set.
Surf is very clean.
There is a bit of backwash at the higher tide, but it should get better for as the tide drops out.
We had a high tide at just after sunrise, and low tide is at 1:49 p.m., and high tide will be at 7:48 p.m.
Winds are light and north-west at 5 knots. Winds are expected to go south-west late day, but fading swell should stay fairly clean today.
Edisto Buoy is reading 6.2 ft. at 12 seconds in long period east/north-easterly ground swell, with the majority of the swell headed past our beaches to Fla.
Hurricane Jose will move north of our swell window today, and we see fading ground swell in the thigh to waist high range. Surf looks fairly small for Wednesday and Thursday, so rest those weary arms, because next up in the batting order is Category 5 Hurricane Maria, which will move north of the Dominican Republic on Friday. It will be smack dab in our swell window starting Saturday. We look for another big ground-swell building Friday and into your weekend. Another big swell in the forecast for a historic hurricane surf season. Keep an eye on Maria, in case she decides to take a swipe at Charleston.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will extend south across the region into early next week as tropical cyclone Jose moves north toward the southern New England coast later this week and then stalls. Meanwhile Hurricane Maria will near the Bahamas this weekend before likely turning north
just off the Southeast U.S. coast.
We have perfect weather today. It is 73* and sunny. Expect a high of 86* with lower humidity and lots of sun.
Water temperature is around 77*.
Sunset is at 7:20 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:05 a.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
