Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, January 27 at 8:30 a.m.    

Looks like they are doing some paving in The Washout area, so expect delays if you head up that way.

Surf at Folly this is knee-high and pretty weak.  

Winds are west at 5-10 knots, and surf zone is clean, but waves are weak.

Winds continue west at 10 knots throughout the rest of the day.  

High tide will be at 9:28 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:34 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:33 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2 feet at 10 seconds in an east swell pushing against a west/south-west wind swell 2.3 feet at 5 seconds.

Surf is looking small through Wednesday as high pressure sets up over our marine area. After a storm system passage on Wednesday, we see high angled north-east wind swell fill in again, with choppy conditions and current running north-to-south, down the beach. Size should increase some, but don’t look for great wave quality Thursday and Friday. Surf could pick up some on Sunday ahead of another approaching cold front, as winds and swell come from a more southerly direction.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will return this afternoon and prevail into Tuesday. A storm system is forecasted to cross through the area on Wednesday, followed by another storm system Friday into Saturday.”

It’s 47* this morning with showers. Look for a high of 60* with rain ending and clouds this afternoon.  

Water temperature has dropped back down to 54*. You’ll need at least a 4/3, and booties.

Sunrise is at 7:17 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:47 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 26 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly this is ankle to knee high and weak.

Winds are west at 5-10 knots, and surf zone is clean as a result.  

Winds continue west at 10 knots throughout the rest of the day.  

Tide just started going out. Low tide will be at 2:55 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.9 ft. at 11 seconds in an east swell.

Surf has dropped considerably since yesterday only showing knee high sets for Folly. This trend looks to begin our work week at the moment expecting small knee high surf. Although a few smaller systems look to push out of the Gulf area late week. We will keep you in the loop as the week progresses and models become more aligned.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A disturbance will move through the area late tonight into early Monday, followed by a return of high pressure. Another weak disturbance should pass to the south midweek followed by a potentially more potent storm system for the region towards the end of the week.” 
  

It’s 46* this morning lots of sunshine. Look for a high of 60* with sun in the forecast.

Water temperature has dropped back down to 54*. Bundle up.

Sunrise is at 7:18 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:44 p.m.

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

Surf at Folly this morning is waist-to-chest high.

It looks fun this morning. But it’s a little soft at the higher tide, early. It could get better form as the tide drops out some.   

Winds are west at 5-10 knots, and surf zone is clean as a result.  

Winds continue west at 10 knots throughout the rest of the day.  

Tide just started going out. Low tide will be at 1:35 p.m. The next high tide will be at 7:33 pm.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.9 ft. at 11 seconds in an east/south-east swell.

Look like a fun day to get wet as we are currently seeing sets into the chest high area with clean conditions. Last nights front has pushed through and winds have gone offshore this Saturday morning. Surf does begin to fade later this afternoon into Sunday morning. The work week at the moment looking small. Although a few smaller systems look to push out of the Gulf area mid-week we will have to see if they are wave makers as models become more clear. Get wet today!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through the weekend. A few quick moving storm systems will bring some impacts to the area next week.”
