THE SURF REPORT
Sun. Mar. 26, 2017 | 7:30 am
Good Morning, this is J. with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, March 26 at 7:30 a.m.
Come on in and check out our end of winter wet-suit sale. All men’s and women’s full-suits will be marked down.
There is tons of new spring merchandise at the shop, including Rusty, Billabong, Roark, Brixton, Volcom and more.
Waves at The Washout this morning are thigh high with waist high sets and weak.
Winds are South-east at 5 knots increasing to 10 knots later today making the surf choppy .
High tide is at 7:24 a.m.and we will have a low tide at 1:24 p.m., and another high tide at 7:32 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 4.3 ft. at 8 seconds in SE swell.
Our run of surf continues today into Monday, with moderate southerly winds keeping surf bumpy/semi-choppy, but some fun surf is in the forecast as high pressure sets up to our north, and sends in a Bermuda-high trade-wind swell. Should be some fun surf for the next three or four days.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “ATLANTIC HIGH PRESSURE WILL WEAKEN EARLY THIS WEEK. A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL STALL OVER THE AREA DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK, THEN SHIFT BACK NORTH AS A WARM FRONT FRIDAY. ANOTHER COLD FRONT SHOULD MOVE THROUGH SATURDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHT FOLLOWED BY DRIER HIGH PRESSURE SUNDAY.
” It’s 59* and cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 72* and partly cloudy.
Water temp is back up to around 61*, but should warm up a bit this weekend.
Sunset is 7:34 p.m. and sunrise is at 7:18 a.m.

WEEKLY WAVE FORECAST
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH TUESDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL DROP SOUTH THROUGH THE AREA WEDNESDAY AS A WEDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE NORTH. THE HIGH WILL SHIFT OFF THE COAST FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. A STORM SYSTEM MAY AFFECT THE AREA NEXT SUNDAY.”
We see small south-west wind waves build late day Tuesday into Wednesday morning ahead of a cold front, as a wedge of high pressure builds to our north. Tuesday, we see increasing south-west winds ahead of Wednesday’s cold front. Mid-week looks rideable, but choppy and drifty with strong north-east to easterly winds commencing Wednesday night. East/north-east winds continue on Thursday, before winds rotate more easterly Friday afternoon (March 25) and into the weekend. Look for choppy trade wind swell to fill in with a better direction Saturday afternoon and Sunday, when we see a chance for choppy, fun surf and warmer temperatures. Look for surf to average waist to chest high into late weekend as winds rotate more on-shore, and high pressure holds to our north-east and pushes in a fun, choppy trade-wind swell. This holds Sunday (March 26) and builds again Monday. Look for a fading clean up on Tuesday. (March 28) We should see decent surf for several days over the weekend, and into the first part of the work week (March 27).
