Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, January 24 at 8:30 a.m. 
We received another batch of Catch Surf soft-boards and bodyboards. We also now have some Vissla wetsuits in stock. Come check it out. 
Surf at The Washout this morning is knee high.    
Winds are 10 to 15 knots from the north-west, and surf zone is clean.   
Look for north-west wind today. These winds should abate by early afternoon, and we see a clean surf zone today, with small waves.  Wind will switch south-west late day. 
High tide is at 11:52 a.m., and low tide will be at 6:13 p.m. 
The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.3 ft. at 5 seconds in a short-period west/south-west wind swell.  
With the continued off-shore flow, we see small surf for today into Tuesday Surf looks small to start the work week, and the next chance for meaningful surf looks to be mid-week when low pressure crosses the Florida Peninsula and slides near our marine area. Winds become strong north-easterly and kick up some drifty north-east wind swell building late Wednesday into Thursday.  
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will persist through Tuesday morning. Low pressure over the Gulf is expected to slide across the Florida Peninsula late Tuesday night before a cold air mass builds into the region through the rest of the week. Another low pressure system could bring unsettled weather to the area early next weekend.”
It’s 41* at Folly Beach this morning. Look for a high of 53* and sun today. It’s a little chilly, but it’s kind of nice here at the beach, and no one is around.  
Water Temperature has gone down. It’s hovering around 50*. Brrrrrr. 
Sunrise is at 7:18 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:45 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, Jan. 23 at 8:30 a.m.

We received another batch of Catch Surf soft-boards and bodyboards. We have just about every shape and size. Come check it out.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high in a long period easterly swell. And it’s cold. But if you’re feeling like an arctic paddle on your log, this is a good morning for it.  

Winds are light from the west, and surf zone is perfectly glassy.  

Look for north-west wind today, and a clean surf zone.  Wind will switch west late day.

High tide is at 11:02 a.m., and low tide will be at 5:23 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 4 ft. at 12 seconds in a long period easterly ground swell.

It’s a cold morning, but if you need to get wet, pull out the 5/4/3 and your log. There is a glide to be had for the log. Surf looks small to start the work week, and the next chance for meaningful surf looks to be mid-week when low pressure moves through our marine area, but still not looking like much.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will persist through Monday. Low pressure could affect the area Tuesday, followed by another cold air mass through the rest of the week.”

It’s cold and frosty -literally – it’s 30* and sunny, with lots of frost. Look for a cold, sunny day with a high of 50*. It’s not that cold, actually. If you want the beach to yourself, come on out.

Water Temperature has gone down. It’s hovering around 50*. Brrrrrr.

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, January 21 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high. It’s soft at the higher tide.

Winds are north at a pretty good clip. It’s blowing 15 to 18 knots. It’s side-shore, drifty and semi-clean.

Look for north winds to continue today at 15 with gusts to 20. There is just some high angled north wind swell in the water for today.

High tide is at 9:42 a.m., and low tide will be at 4 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:04 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 8 ft at 7 seconds in a building, medium period north-east wind generated swell, much of which is headed to Florida for the weekend.

We have high angled north-east wind swell on tap starting to build today. We see a cold front stall offshore today. Look increasing east/north-east swell with a high angle on it as a low pressure system develops off-shore along this stalled cold front. This low begins to track north-east for Saturday. Surf and wind will be increasing significantly into Saturday as north-east wind ramp up to 30 knots with ice in the forecast overnight for tonight.  There should be plenty of medium-sized north-east wind waves mixed with easterly swell for Saturday, but the weather and the quality of the surf won’t be great because of strong north winds and cold weather. This swell drops off for Sunday. Everyone you know is heading to Florida, so gas up the mini-van.   

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Low pressure will develop along the front today then move northeast tonight. This low will produce a period of freezing rain in some areas. Dry high pressure will then build from the west Saturday through Monday. Low pressure could affect the area next Tuesday, followed by another cold front by the middle of next week.”

The weather pretty much sucks at the beach, unless you love the coast of Oregon (which I do, by the way). It’s 39* and raining. Expect rain all day with a high of around 40*. There should be  some ice overnight.

Water Temperature has gone down. It’s hovering around 52*. It’s mid-January.

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.

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

Surf at The Washout this morning is once again flat.  

Winds are south/south-east at 10 knots and surf zone is semi-clean, but it’s too small to ride.

Look for south-west winds at  10 knots this afternoon, and we see a semi-choppy surf zone today.   

High tide is at 9:07 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:23 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:27 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 1.3 ft. at 8 seconds in a small, medium-period easterly wind swell.

Surf is looking small today ahead of a cold front moving into the area this afternoon. We see a cold front stall offshore into Friday. Look increasing east/north-east swell with a high angle on it as a low pressure system develops off-shore along this stalled cold front. This low begins to track north-east for the weekend. There should be plenty of medium-sized north-east wind waves mixed with easterly swell for Friday and Saturday, but the weather and the quality of the surf won’t be great because of strong north winds and cold weather. But that never stopped ya’ before, so charge it!  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “A cold front will move through the region today, then will stall off the coast tonight. Low pressure will develop along the front Friday then move northeast Friday night and Saturday. This low will produce a period of freezing rain in some areas. Dry high pressure will then build from the west Saturday through Monday. Low pressure could affect the area next Tuesday, followed by another cold front by the middle of next week.”

It’s nice this morning. It’s 60* and sunny. Look for a high of 66* with some sun and clouds moving in later. It’s not a terrible day to be at the beach. But we do expect rain Friday with some icing overnight on Saturday morning.

Water Temperature has gone down. It’s hovering around 52*. It’s mid-January.

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.
