Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, August 9 at 8:15 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.
Surf at The Washout is ankle to knee high and weak.
Winds are light out of the WSW at 5 knots, and surf is textured but fairly clean this morning. Bring the longboard if you want to catch any surf.
We see SW winds today up to 15 knots this afternoon making the surf semi choppy on the incoming tide later today.
We had a high tide at sun-rise, and low tide will be at 12:28 p.m. The next high tide will be at 6:55 p.m.
The Edisto buoy is reading 3 ft. at 5 seconds in short period south-west wind swell.
We have small surf in the forecast through the weekend as high pressure is south of the area. We could see some choppy, waist high south-west wind swell fill in to start your work week. We’ll keep an eye on the tropics, as things should start to pick up during the second half of August.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure south of the area will prevail into Friday. Weak low pressure will develop over the Mid-Atlantic this weekend, persisting into early next week.”
It’s 77* and partly cloudy this morning. Look for a hot day with a high of 94* with partly cloudy skies and a 40% chance of a thunderstorm.
Water temperature is 84*.
Sunset is at 8:09 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:39 a.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
