Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, September 22 at 8:30 a.m.
The Sea and Sand Festival takes place today on Center Street, so Center Street is closed today, but come see us at the shop while you’re wandering around and celebrating the first day of fall.
Surf at the Pier is averaging knee high, maybe an occasional thigh high set.
Winds are east at 5 knots, and surf zone is clean and weak.
We see east winds this afternoon remaining around 10 knots with a higher gust.
We are coming off a high tide just before sunrise. Low tide will be at 12:36 p.m. The next high tide will be at 7:05 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-easterly swell.
We have some knee high longboard style waves at the pier this morning. A few tropical systems are prowling around out in the Atlantic, one nearby low pressure system looks to form well off the Outer Banks and could send us some residual, medium-period easterly swell late Sunday into early work week. We also see enhanced south-easterly trade-wind swell mid-week as high pressure sets up off the mid-Atlantic during the middle part of the week, so there should be some thigh to waist high waves to start your work week, building some Tuesday.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail into Sunday. A weak wave approaching from the east is forecasted to bring some impacts to the area Monday into Tuesday. A cold front is expected to bring more impacts to the area towards the end of next week.”
It’s 76* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 86* and sun today.
Water temperature is 83*.
Sunset is at 7:20 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:06 a.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
