Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, August 23 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at The Washout this morning is in the ankle-to-knee high range.
Winds are south/south-west at 10 to 12 knots, and surf is weak and choppy.
Look for winds from the south today at around 10 to 12 knots, and surf looks to stay small and semi-choppy today.
We are coming off a low tide, and high tide will be at 1:52 p.m. The next low tide will be at 8:16 p.m.The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.3 ft. at 7 seconds in a combination of small medium period east/south-east swell, and a small south wind swell.There is a tropical spot to watch developing just west of the Fla. Keys that could spin-off a home-grown system over the weekend as it moves north. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 70% chance to develop over the next several days. It’s close to home, so it’s not a BIG swell maker, but this tropical weather system could push up rideable wind swell building Sunday and Monday as it skirts along a stalled frontal boundary after a cold front moves off-shore Saturday night. There’s also a tropical wave 1400 miles west of the Windward Islands to keep an eye on next weekend, but it’s a long way out.Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will prevail today, before a cold front approaches from the north tonight. The front will cross through the area on Saturday then will stall offshore Sunday. Low pressure could develop along the front and track northeast and offshore through the first half of next week. Another cold front could impact the region late next week.”It’s 81* with sunshine this morning. Look for a high of 88* with a 20% chance of a shower today.
Water temperature is around 85*.
Sunrise is at 6:47 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:56 p.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
