Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, August 21 at 8:30 a.m.
Remember that Surfers Healing takes place at the Folly Beach Pier on Thursday. Check it out at www.surfershealing.org.
Also, make sure to check out the Warrior Surf Foundation’s raffle at Bohemian Bull on Saturday. Check it out at www.warriorsurf.org.
Keep in mind bulldozers and beach nourishment area taking place at the Washout.
Surf at the Washout is knee high at the Morning’s outgoing tide.
Winds are west/south-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is fairly clean.
We see south-west winds at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon, going south-west at 15 to 20 knots late day. Look for choppy surf this afternoon.
Low tide will be at 10:43 a.m., and high tide will be at 5:22 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 5 seconds in a short period south-west wind swell.
Not much surf at the beach today. We see south-west winds increase tonight ahead of a cold front on Wednesday. This could push up some choppy south-west wind swell for Wednesday in the waist high range with south-east winds at the beach keeping things choppy. It looks like we could see a quick shot of high-angled east/north-east wind swell Friday into Saturday morning as this cold front stalls off-shore. The tropics are STILL quiet as high pressure controls the Western Atlantic.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “The area will remain between an inland trough and Atlantic high pressure today. A cold front will approach from the northwest tonight, then cross through late Wednesday as high pressure passes to the north. The front is expected to stall offshore through the weekend.”
It’s 79* and mostly sunny this morning. Look for a high of 87* and a 20% chance of a thunderstorm today.
Water temperature is 84*.
Sunset is at 7:58 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:48 a.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
