Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, January 25 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is knee-high. Maybe slightly larger. It’s still weak, so bring the longboard.

Winds are very light from the west, and surf zone is clean.    

Look for moderate south-westerly winds today, and some texture in the surf zone this afternoon.

We have a low tide at 11:30 a.m., and a high tide will be at 5:29 p.m.

The virtual buoy is reading 1.3 ft. at 8 seconds in a medium period south-east swell.

Surf could build slightly this afternoon on the incoming tide. Nothing too big, but we do expect building south/south-westerly wind swell as a storm system effects our marine area Tuesday into Wednesday, with winds blowing moderate from the south-west, adding some surface chop. There is also a low forecast to form east of the mid-Atlantic states. This should push up a significant north-easterly ground swell, but most of the swell will pass Folly. Points south in Florida that like north-east swell should pick up significantly late week and into the weekend.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. A wet storm system will impact the region Tuesday into Wednesday, before a strong cold front pushes offshore late Wednesday night. High pressure will return late week. Another cold front could impact the area early next week.”

It is 59* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 63* and with a mixture of sun and clouds this afternoon.

Water temperature is 53*.

Sunrise is at 7:17 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:45 p.m.

Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 24 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is ankle to knee high, putting out a lackluster longboard-able wave.

Winds are north/north-east at 5-10 knots, and surf is somewhat side-shore, semi-clean, weak and not good.   

Look for winds rotating more easterly this afternoon and remaining around 8 knots. Surf should be small and semi-choppy this afternoon given these forecasted conditions.   

We have a low tide at 10:37 a.m., and a high tide will be at 4:40 p.m.

The virtual buoy is reading 2.6ft at 4s in a short period, east-northeast wind swell.

For now, there is not much hope for meaningful surf today with no swell off-shore. It should be expected that this flat spell continue into Monday morning. Surf may pick up significantly in south/south-west wind swell late afternoon Monday into Tuesday, as a cold front moves into our area to start the work week. Another storm system effects our marine area on Thursday, but this system seems less promising based on current forecast models. So next week, we might get some surf.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail through the weekend. A cold front will impact the region Tuesday, followed by another storm system mid-week. High pressure will return late week.”

It is 46* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 57* and sun this afternoon.   

Water temperature is 55*.

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 Saturday, January 23 at 8:30 a.m.   

Sorry for the late report. There was no power on the west side of the island this morning. Thanks Dominion Energy!

I suppose it doesn’t matter too much. Surf at Folly is flat. 

Winds are north/north-east at 15 knots, and surf is side-shore, semi-clean, weak and not good.   

Look for winds rotating more north-easterly this afternoon and remaining around 15 knots. Surf should be small and semi-choppy this afternoon.   

We have a low tide at 9:49 a.m., and a high tide will be at 3:47 p.m.

There is no swell at the buoy.

For now, there is not much hope for meaningful surf today with no swell off-shore. Winds go strong north-east this afternoon, but it will be a high-angled north-east wind swell and will not increase our surf for the weekend. Surf could pick up significantly in south/south-west wind swell late afternoon Monday into Tuesday as a cold front moves into our area to start the work week. Another storm system effects our marine area on Thursday. So next week, we might get some surf.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail through the weekend. A cold front will impact the region Tuesday, followed by another storm system mid-week. High pressure will return late week.”

It is 48* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 55* and sun this afternoon.   

Water temperature is 53*.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, January 22 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is flat.  It’s kind of like a broken record. But the good news is there is some surf on the horizon next week.       

Winds are west at 5 knots, and surf zone is clean.  

Look for winds rotating from west to north today at around 5-10 knots, and surf zone should stay clean today.  

We are coming off a low tide this morning and high tide will be at 2:53 p.m. The next low tide at 8:50 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a 2.4 ft. at 4 seconds in a short-period west/south-westerly wind-swell.       

For now, there is not much hope for meaningful surf today with little swell off-shore. Winds go strong north-east on Saturday, but it will be a high-angled north-east wind swell on Saturday in the thigh-high range with lots of current and semi-choppy conditions. Surf could pick up significantly in south/south-west wind swell Monday into the middle of next week as a cold front moves into our area Monday into Tuesday. Another storm system effects our marine area on Thursday. So next week, we might get some winter-time surf.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “A cold front will slowly push south of the area today. High pressure will then prevail over the weekend, before another cold front crosses the area early next week. Another storm system could impact the region mid to late week.”

It is 52* with rain this morning. Look for a shower and clouds this afternoon with a high of 55*.  

Water temperature is 53*.

Sunrise is at 7:19 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:43 p.m.
