Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, January 23 at 8:30 a.m.
Waves at the Washout this morning are waist to stomach high with a rib high set. It looks to be building.
Winds are south-east at 10 to 15 knots, and surf is bumpy and choppy/disorganized.
Look for strong south winds at 15 to 20 knots this afternoon making surf choppy and drifty.
We have a high tide at 9:24 a.m., and a low tide at 3:38 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:52 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 6.2 feet at 7 seconds in a significant south-east wind well.
We have south-east wind swell in the water this morning averaging waist to stomach high and building. Southerly winds will increase this afternoon and keep surf choppy. Try to get on it this morning if you can. The swell builds overnight, cleaning up some Thursday as winds blow strong from the west after another cold front passage. We see leftovers for Friday in the waist high range. So there is some surf in the forecast over the next few days. The weekend looks small, so go surf late week if you can.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will extend across the region through Wednesday. A cold front will push offshore early Thursday with high pressure then prevailing through early next week.”
It’s a cold 54* this morning with cloudy skies. Look for a high of 67* and some rain showers this afternoon.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 20 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at the Washout this morning are Waist-Chest. Semi choppy conditions that are starting to improve.

Winds are currently moderate/strong from the WSW at 15+ knots and surf-zone is still trying to clean up as the winds are beginning to rotate more offshore.

Look for strong/gusty west winds today averaging 15-20kts.

We have a high tide at 6:57 A.M and low tide is at 1:12 P.M The Edisto buoy is reading 11.5ft at 8 seconds in a medium period S wind-swell.

Waves are here this morning and running waist to chest high on average. Winds and current are still an issue early but look for this to improve as the morning progresses. The front is just about to pass and winds should pick up harder out of the west. This hard offshore wind should knock the surf down quick so get out there today if you can. Work week is looking slow to start with another potential shot of south wind-swell mid-late week we will keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will move offshore this morning, followed by cold high pressure. Another cold front will move through Wednesday night and Thursday, then high pressure will build back over the area. A storm system could affect the area late next weekend.

It’s 55* and cloudy at the beach this morning. Look for a high of 67* with clouds today.

Water temperature is around 55*.

Sunrise is around 7:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.
