THE SURF REPORT
Tues., Aug. 29 PM | 3:30 p.m.
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.
