Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesdday, May 27 at 8:30 a.m.  

The City of Folly Beach is now open. Social distancing rules will be enforced. Please see the City of Folly Beach’s Web Site for more information.

We will be open from 9:15 a.m. until 5 p.m. on this holiday, Monday. Please follow social distancing protocols when shopping.

Waves at Folly this morning are chest-to-head high with a bigger set in a big medium period south-easterly swell.

Winds are north/north-east at 10 knots, and surf zone is semi-choppy, but it promises to clean up as the tide comes in mid-morning and winds switch off-shore.

Winds are predicted to go north-west mid-morning at 10 to 15 knots, then increase 15 to 20 later this afternoon. Winds moderate from the south-west late day as the weather clears out.   

High tide is at 11:54 a.m., and low tide will be at 5:53 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 13 ft at 8 seconds in a combination of medium period south-east swell and short period south-east wind swell.  

Lots of swell at the buoy with good direction, so there should be waves all day. We see strong south-east swell this morning as a low moves off-shore and into our marine area. Get on it this afternoon if you can, as winds should become more favorable late morning into early afternoon. Choppier south-wind swell continues smaller for Thursday and Friday, with moderate south-winds adding some chop, but still something to ride.  Small easterly trade wind swell looks to fill in again Friday and Saturday. Looks like the swell should hold on for the next few days. We’ll  we will keep you posted!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Low pressure will track onshore of South Carolina this morning, then move away to the north this afternoon. Periods of unsettled weather will then continue until a cold front moves through the region early next week followed by cooler and drier high pressure.”

It’s 73 degrees with rain this morning. Look for a high of 78* with clearing later today.  

Water temperature is around 78*.  Back to boardies and bikinis.

Sunrise is at 6:13 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:20 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
