Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, February 12 at 8:30 a.m.
Waves at the Washout this morning are thigh to waist high with a stomach sets and should build some on the incoming tide. It looks fun out there this morning, but it’s very foggy.
Winds are east/north-east at 5 to 10 knots, and surf-zone is bumpy, but not too choppy.
Look for south winds at 5 to 10, increasing 10 to 15 this afternoon. Surf should be choppy as the tide goes out later this afternoon.
Tide is coming in, and high tide will be at 12:36 p,m. The next low tide will be at 6:53 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 7 sec. in dominant south-easterly wind swell with medium period.
Still some fun surf out there on the incoming tide early this morning, but the south wind should pick up some late morning and into afternoon, chopping up the surf. There could be some leftovers with off-shore conditions early Wednesday morning after a cold front passage over-night. Surf should go smaller Wednesday afternoon, before another storm system effects our surf Friday, building another choppy south wind swell. We look to have medium-period, lazy south-east swell over the weekend.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A warm front will lift north this morning, then a cold front will cross through the area this evening. High pressure is forecasted to prevail for the middle of the week, before a series of storm systems bring impacts late in the week into early next week.”
It’s 59* with dense fog this morning. Look for a high of 67* with fog today.
Water temperature is around 57*, according to un-named sources at the DNR.
Sunrise is around 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:02 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, February 11 at 8:15 a.m.
Waves at the Washout this morning are thigh to waist high with a stomach (plus) sets and should build some on the incoming tide. It looks fun out there this morning.
Winds are north at 5 to 10 knots, and surf-zone is side-shore, but clean.
Look for north winds at 5 knots most of the day, becoming south at 5 knots later this afternoon, adding a slight bump to the surf.
High tide will be at 11:44 a.m., and low tide will be at 6 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 5.2 ft. at 7 sec. in a combination of south-east wind swell and east/south-east swell.
We have building south wind swell in the water today as a warm front lifts north of our marine area. We have fairly light winds in the forecast, so there should be some decent surf today; especially as the tide comes in this morning. South wind swell continues for Tuesday, but south winds increase, adding some chop to south wind swell. Surf should go smaller for mid-week, before another storm system effects our surf later in the work week, building another choppy south wind swell.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A warm front will gradually lift through the area today into tonight. A cold front will move through late Tuesday. High pressure is forecasted for the middle of the week, before a storm system brings impacts late in the week.”
It’s 51* and cloudy skies this morning. Look for a high of 64* with clouds and a chance of some showers all day long.
Water temperature is back about 54*.
Sunrise is around 7:08 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:58 p.m.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, February 10th at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at the Washout this morning are thigh to waist high with a plus set. Lots of current running down the beach.

Winds are NNE at about 15+ knots creating some drift and chop to the surf-zone surface.

Look for NNE winds through the day and should begin to lighten up.

High tide will be at 11:00 a.m., and low tide will be at 5:20 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 8.5 ft. at 6 sec. in ENE wind-swell.

We have choppy/drifty NE wind-swell running waist+ this morning. It is not ideal but, enough to get wet for sure. Best bet today is late morning with the help of the incoming tide. This swell rotates on-shore from the south/south-east on Monday into Tuesday so we may see smaller but cleaner surf to start the week. Long range we look to see a large south swell hit our area next weekend. We will keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. A warm front will lift north through the area Monday, followed by a cold front late Tuesday. High pressure returns for the middle of the week, before a storm system brings impacts to the area late in the week.

It’s 43* and cloudy skies this morning. Look for a high of 58* with clouds this afternoon.

Water temperature is back up to a balmy 55*.

Sunrise is around 7:08 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:58 p.m.
