Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, August 14 at 8:30 a.m.
Remember that Surfers Healing takes place at the Folly Beach Pier on Thursday, August 23rd. Check it out at www.surfershealing.org.
Also, make sure to check out the Warrior Surf Foundation’s raffle at Bohemian Bull on Saturday, August 25. There are eight different surfboards that will be raffled off. Get raffle tickets at the surf shop. Or, check it out at www.warriorsurf.org.
Waves at the Washout are knee to thigh high with a slightly larger set. It’s soft with tide up in the rocks at the morning’s high tide. It looks kinda’ fun for a high-volume board.
Winds are light from the west/south-west at 5 to 10 knots and surf is side-shore and textured, but overall fairly clean.
We see south-west winds at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon making the surf semi choppy later today.
We have a high tide at 11:07 a.m., and a low tide be at 5:04 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 4.3 ft. at 6 seconds in short period south-west wind swell.
We should see slightly bigger surf today in weak, short period south/south-west wind swell. Look for waves to average thigh high, perhaps a bigger set at the best tides. During the latter part of the work-week the surf looks fairly small as we wait for our first significant tropical system to pop onto the radar.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A weak front will prevail inland today, then dissipate on Wednesday. Inland troughing will then become more prominent during the second half of the week, then persist into early next week.”
It’s78* and cloudy this morning with rain showers in the area. Look for a high of 88* today with a 20% chance of a thunderstorm.
Water temperature is 85*.
Sunset is at 8:06 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:41 a.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
