Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, March 20 at 8:30 a.m.

The City of Folly Beach has issued a state of emergency regarding the Covid-19 virus, and is encouraging social distancing at this time. Please see the City of Folly Beach’s Web site for more information.

We will be closed at 5 p.m.

Waves at Folly this morning are in the thigh-to-waist high range.  

Winds are ver10 knots from the south-west, and surf zone is side-shore and semi-clean early today.  

We see winds increasing from the south this afternoon at 15 to 20 knots, and this should build choppy south wind-swell for today and Saturday.

Tide is going out, and we have a low tide at 12:15 p.m., and a high tide at 6:21 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is down and not reading. But the virtual buoy is reading 2.3 ft. at 8 seconds in a mixed direction easterly swell, with a small underlying south wind swell.

We see small trade-wind swell today best for the long-board, with wins picking up from the south this afternoon. Swell slowly builds from the south increasing today and Saturday ahead of a cold front, as south-west winds pick up averaging 15 knots, adding chop to waist/stomach high south swell today and Saturday. Sunday, we see fresh north-east wind swell fill on once again with strong north-east winds until Monday morning, when winds go off-shore, and cleans up mixed direction easterly swell.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will persist through tonight. A cold front will then move through the area Saturday night followed by several disturbances into the middle of next week.”

It’s 70* with sunny skies this morning. Look for partly cloudy skies with and a high of 80* today.

Water temperature is around 65*.  

Sunrise is at 7:26 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:28 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
