Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, August 14 at 8:30 a.m.  

Gary Wilson, Album and Jason Rowells boards arrived this week. Come check them out while we still have a good selection.

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  

Mandatory mask ordinance is in effect for Folly.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee- high.

Winds are light from the west/north-west. Surf-zone is clean.

Look for winds from the south this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots knots adding surface chop to small surf later today.

Low tide is at 10:13 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:47 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is only reading 3.9 ft. at 7 seconds in a short-period, south-west wind swell.

High pressure is east of our general marine area. Low pressure lingers inland. Looks like a little bit of choppy, short-period, south/south-west wind waves on-and-off for Saturday and Sunday. Nothing to write home about, but some wind-chop to ride if you are into it. Tropical Storm Josephine is now in the western Atlantic. It’ll likely start showing some swell late Monday into-middle of next week. Nothing too big, but might be a few fun ones We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A trough of low pressure will persist inland, while high pressure remains over the Atlantic through Saturday. A weak cold front will then pass through the area Sunday into Sunday night. A trough will redevelop over the region during the middle of next week.”

It’s 878* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 88* and a 30% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

Water temperature is 86*.  

Sunrise is at 6:42 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:03 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
