GENERAL

Winds are south/south-east at 15 this afternoon.

Surf is knee to thigh high and choppy.

Every once in a while there is a ground-swell coming in, but it’s not near as good as it has been. Most of the ground-swell we’ve enjoyed for the past five days is gone.

We had a low tide at 2:33PM. Tide will be high again tonight at 8:46PM

NWS Marine WX Forecast:

A SURFACE Trough WILL CONTINUE ACROSS COASTAL GEORGIA AND SOUTH CAROLINA THROUGH TONIGHT. A COLD FRONT WILL GRADUALLY MOVE SOUTH THROUGH THE AREA TUESDAY…FOLLOWED BY HIGH PRESSURE FROM THE NORTH THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK.

Could get a small pulse from the east/north-east mid-week, but look for waves to average thigh high with bigger sets to waist high early week in choppy wind-swell, and should be rideable at times.

Tropical depression 12, soon to become tropical storm Katia, is located about 450 miles south, south-west of the

southern Cape Verde Islands, and is forecast to slowly make its way in our direction. It’s a long way off, but could play a factor in our waves early next week. We’ll update.

Weather will be clear today, with a high of 86. 10-percent chance of rain.

Water temp dropped to 84*.

Sunset is at 7:48 a.m.
