Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 a.m.  

WATER DROP ALERT temperatures have dropped exceedingly over the last few days. We have O’neil, Billabong and Bodyglove Neoprene on the floor to keep you toasty!

Surf at Folly this morning is waist-to-belly high clean but some drift still remains.

Winds are north/north-west at 20 knots with higher gust. Winds are bending around more favorably.

Look for north-west winds to persist 20 knots today, with occasional gusts to 25.

We have a high tide at 10:54 a.m., and a low tide at 5:18 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 12.8 ft. at 9 seconds in a high angled east/north-east swell.

Surf has cleaned up some overnight as the Low begins pushing offshore. Currently Folly is seeing waist to belly high surf clean faces with still a lot of drift. Be aware its blowing offshore 20+mph its cold! Wind and swell both look to start its fading trend throughout the day. Possible leftover loggable wave on your Monday morning incoming tide push.  Looking ahead surf looks small during our work week as high pressure settles back over our swell window.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Strong low pressure offshore will move away today. A weak cold front is forecasted to cross through Monday night, followed by high pressure until late in the week. Unsettled weather should return next weekend.”

Its 47* out this morning WINDY. Look for clouds to move out and sunshine to return later today with a expected high of 58*.

 

Water temperature is dropping rapidly. It’s now 60*. It’s dropped 8* in about a week.

 

Sunrise is at 6:49 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:17 p.m.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, Nov. 16 at 8:30 a.m.  

Surf at Folly this morning is waist-to-chest high with some plus sets developing. Very drifty but some waves to surf if you want to put in the work.

Winds are north/north-east at 20 knots with higher gust. These winds resulting in difficult drifty semi-unorganized surf zone for Charleston.  

Look for north winds to persist 20 knots today, with occasional gusts to 25.

We have a high tide at 10:04 a.m., and a low tide at 4:27 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 12.1 ft. at 8 seconds in a high angled east/north-east swell.

We expect strong north winds this Saturday and continued, high angled north-east wind swell in the chest high range. Most of this swell will again pass our shores and head south of our waters, but there is some swell wrapping in. We see ground-swell this weekend with strong north winds keeping bigger surf side-shore and drifty. The Low over us currently looks to depart further offshore tonight. As a result look for more favorable winds Sunday and hopefully cleaner surf. This swell begins its fading trend Sunday afternoon into Monday. Looking ahead surf looks small during our work week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Low pressure will slowly pass offshore into Saturday, then move away on Sunday. High pressure will then prevail for most of next week.”
 

There is a gale watch at the beach today, with temperature at 51* and rain. Look for rain all day and a high of 52*.

Water temperature is dropping rapidly. It’s now 60*. It’s dropped 8* in about a week.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, Nov. 15 at 8:30 a.m.  

Surf at Folly this morning is knee-to-thigh high. There is a waist set, but it is pretty soft in a high angled north-east wind swell.   

Winds are north/north-east at 15 knots, and surf is side-shore and clean with a current still running north-to-south, down the beach.     

Look for north winds at 15 to 20 knots today, with occasional gusts to 25. We will see side-shore semi-clean surf today with current down the beach.

We have a high tide at 9:08 a.m., and a low tide at 3:37 p.m. The next high tide will be at 9:32 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.2 ft. at 5 seconds in a high angled north/north-east wind swell.

We expect strong north winds today and continued, high angled north-east wind swell in the waist high range. Most of this swell will again pass our shores and head south of our waters, but there is some swell wrapping in, and this should increase Saturday and Sunday as a low builds off-shore of our beaches Saturday, moving away from our swell window later Sunday. We see ground-swell this weekend with strong north winds keeping bigger surf side-shore and drifty. Better have some neoprene, as it will be a cold, raw and rainy swell event Saturday, with sun coming out and cool temperatures on Sunday. We see a few leftovers on the incoming tide Monday morning, before surf falls off to start the work week.  

There is a gale watch at the beach today, with temperature at 48* and rain. Look for rain all day and a high of 58*.

Water temperature is dropping rapidly. It’s now 60*. It’s dropped 8* in about a week.

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

Colder weather swell is coming this weekend, and we have a great selection of booties, hoods and gloves out on the floor, so come get your cold-water gear while the selection is still good.

Surf at Folly this morning is thigh high with waist high sets in a high-angled north-east wind swell. It’s breaking right on the beach at high tide.

Winds are north at 15 to 20 knots. There is of current, north-to-south down the beach, but surf zone is bumpy, but semi-clean faces.    

Look for north winds at 15 knots today, with occasional gusts to 20. We will see side-shore semi-clean surf today with current down the beach.

We have a high tide at 8:30 a.m., and a low tide at 2:53 p.m. The next high tide is at 8:52 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 6.6 ft. at 7 seconds in a north-east wind swell.

We expect strong north winds today and continued, high angled north-east wind swell. Most of this swell will again pass our shores and head south of our waters, with north-east wind swell falling off, but continuing for Friday. For the weekend, things get interesting as a low-pressure system looks to develop just north of our coast-line Saturday and Sunday. We could see ground-swell this weekend with strong north winds keeping bigger surf side-shore and drifty. Better have some neoprene, as it will be a cold, raw and rainy swell event Saturday, with sun coming out and cool temperatures on Sunday. Swell falls off to start the work week.

It is cold at the beach. It’s 45* with a wind chill of 40* and cloudy.  Look for a high of only 60* today with clouds and rain starting mid-afternoon.

Water temperature is dropping rapidly. It’s now 62*.

Sunrise is at 6:49 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:18 p.m.
