Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, Sept. 19 at 8:30 a.m.    

You can now park in right-of-ways on the side streets at Folly Monday through Thursday. Keep in mind parking restrictions still apply Friday through Sunday. Check the City of Folly Beach’s Web site for more information.

We still have a mandatory mask ordinance in effect for Folly Beach.

Surf is waist-to-stomach high in a high-angled north-east wind swell. It is semi-clean and very drifty from north-to-south.  It is a little soft at the morning’s high tide, so bring a high-volume board if you want to get wet.

Winds are north/north-east at 20 knots. It is blowing hard side-shore, early.

Look for winds to clock more north-east and gust to 30 knots this afternoon. We see a drifty surf-zone all day.    

We have a high tide at 10 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:08 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:15 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data showing 5 ft at 5 seconds in a short period north-east wind swell.  

Might want to bring the longboard this morning for some high angled north-east wind swell. You’ll be drifting down the beach for sure. We have building ground swell today with a high north-east angle on it. We should see swell begin to fill in from Hurricane Teddy overnight, but strong north/side-shore winds are forecast again Sunday behind today’s cold front. There will, however, be bigger surf Sunday. So keep an eye on Teddy’s ground swell and look for increasing north-east winds. Big swell and north-east winds will continue into the first half of the work week. Look for surf falling off mid-week.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Strong high pressure will gradually build into the area over the weekend and will persist through next week.”

It’s 69* – dude – with clouds this morning. Look for a high of only 75* with clouds in the forecast this afternoon.

Water temperature is 84*.  

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:19 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
