Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, June 5 at 8:30 a.m.  

Waves at Folly this morning are knee-to-thigh high with a waist set. It is soft at the morning’s high tide in a south wind swell, but looks fun for the high volume board, and could get punchier as the tide drops.

Winds are west/south-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is semi-choppy early this morning.   

Winds are forecast south-westerly at 10 to 12 knots today, going southerly at 15 to 20 late day.  So we should see some bump in the surf-zone later today before surf gets choppy and builds from the south at the evening’s high tide.    

Tide is starting to go out, and low tide will be at 2:05 p.m. The next high tide will be at 8:39 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft. ft at 5 seconds in a short-period, building east/south-east swell, with a small short period south wind swell 1.6 ft at 4 seconds.   

South swell is building off-shore, and we see typical summer south/south-west wind swell fill in and increase some for afternoon as the tide comes in. But it will be choppy, with strong southerly winds. This choppy, south/south-west wind swell should continue over the weekend as a cold-front approaches and lingers in our marine area early next week. Sub-tropical Storm Cristobal has formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico. It is predicted to move north towards the Louisiana coast perhaps by late in the weekend. This, along with a cold front lingering in our area, should increase choppy south swell through early in the work week. Swell goes more easterly late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will remain offshore through Friday while a trough of low pressure persists inland. A cold front will gradually approach the region early next week, then stall near the area into the middle of next week.

It’s 75*, cool and cloudy. Look for a high of 80* today and a slight chance of showers on-and-off today.      

Water temperature is around 79*.  

Sunrise is at 6:10 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:25 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
