Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, April 16 at 8:30 a.m. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee high.  

Winds are north/north-east at 15 knots, and surf-zone is semi-choppy, weak, side-shore and drifty down the beach.  It looks pretty bad this morning, and we don’t expect much improvement today.

Look for winds to blow north-east at 15 to 20 this morning, going east at 10 to 15 knots later today. Look for small, choppy surf today.  

We have a high tide at 11:22 a.m., and a low tide at 5:10 p.m. The next high tide is well after dark.

Virtual buoy readings are showing 1.5 ft. at 10 seconds in a long period, high-angled east/north-east swell.

A front stalls off-shore today and through the weekend, and it’s looking like light winds for the next four days and there is not much swell through early into the next work week. Not the best forecast.    

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A stationary front will linger offshore and to the south through early next week as a series of low pressure systems pass to the east. A cold front will move across the region by the middle of next week.”

It is cloudy and 61* this morning. Look for a high of 67* and clouds this afternoon.  

Water temperature is around 68*.

Sunrise is at 6:47 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:50 p.m.

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

Surf at The Washout this morning is thigh-to-waist high.  There is a stomach set.

Winds are south-west at 5 to 10 knots, and surf zone is bumpy and kind of soft, but there are some clean sections.  

Look for winds to gradually pick up from the south-west late morning at 15 to 20 knots ahead of a cold front. Surf should build in size and get choppy and drifty this afternoon.

We have a high tide at 10:36 a.m., and a low tide at 4:34 p.m. The next high tide is well after dark.

Virtual buoy readings are showing mixed easterly swell under 3.6 ft. at 5 seconds in a building south-west, short-period wind swell.

We have a few waves for the high volume board this morning averaging thigh-to-waist high. It’s not too choppy, early. Look for more south-west winds and choppy conditions this afternoon. Winds could come west late day, so keep an eye on the flags. A cold front stalls off-shore Friday. Hopefully a more meaningful low will pop off of this stalled frontal boundary for Friday and into the weekend, but right now swell models are NOT calling for much surf for Friday and into early next week.  

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “A cold front will advance through the region today, then will stall off the Southeast coast Friday through early next week. A series of low pressures will track along this stationary front this weekend into early next week. Drier high pressure will then build over the area through the second half of next week.”

It is cloudy and 72* this morning. Look for a high of 73* and clouds this afternoon with rain showers in the area.

Water temperature is around 68*.

Sunrise is at 6:48 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:49 p.m.

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

Surf at The Washout this morning is in ankle-to-knee high. There is a rare thigh set, and it’s perfectly glassy as the tide comes in. Only for longboards, but it’s a pretty morning.  

Winds are slack this morning, and surf-zone is clean.

Look for winds to gradually pick up from the south late morning. Blowing south 15 to 20 with a higher gust as a cold front approaches this afternoon.

We have a high tide at 10:11 a.m., and a low tide at 4 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:18 p.m.

Virtual buoy readings are showing mixed easterly swell under 1.8 ft. at 8 seconds in an east/north-east medium period swell passing right by our beaches.   

Surf looks small today, but will pick up some Thursday in a choppy, drifty south-west wind swell as a cold front approaches and then stalls off-shore for Thursday. Hopefully a more meaningful low will pop off of this stalled frontal boundary for Friday and into the weekend, but right now swell models are NOT calling for much for Friday and into the weekend.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “Dry high pressure will prevail into tonight. A cold front will advance through the region Thursday then will stall off the Southeast coast Friday through early next week. A series of low pressures will track along this stationary front and will produce periods of inclement weather this weekend into early next week. Drier high pressure will build over the region during the middle of next week.”

It is nice out this morning. Lots of sunshine and 65*. Look for a high of 75* with perfect beach weather on tap for today, but it will get a little windy this afternoon.

Water temperature is around 67*. It should be going up over the next week.

Sunrise is at 6:50 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:48 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, April 13 at 8:30 a.m. 

Surf at The Washout this morning is in flat. So we thought we’d show you a few pictures of the pier’s construction.   

Winds are north/north-east at 10 knots, and surf is weak and semi-clean.

Look for winds to blow north-east at 10 to 15 this morning, going east at 10 knots later this afternoon.   

We have a high tide at 9:36 a.m., and a low tide at 3:27 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:45 p.m.

Virtual buoy readings are showing mixed easterly swell under 1 ft, with dominant swell at .8 ft from the north-east at 10 seconds.  

Surf looks small today and Wednesday, but could pick up some in another south wind swell as a cold front approaches and then stalls off-shore for Thursday. Hopefully a more meaningful low will pop off of this stalled frontal boundary for Friday and into the weekend, but right now swell models are NOT calling for much over the next five days.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “Dry high pressure will prevail through Wednesday. A cold front will advance through the region Thursday then should stall just south and east of the area Friday through early next week. A series of low pressures will track along this stationary front and could produce periods of inclement weather this weekend into early next week.”

It is nice out this morning. Lots of sunshine and 65*. Look for a high of 74* with perfect beach weather on tap for today.

Water temperature is around 67*. It should be going up over the next week.

Sunrise is at 6:50 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:48 p.m.
