Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, June 18 at 8:30 a.m.   

New Gary Wilson boards arrived on Friday. Come make sure to check them out while the selection is still good. This might be our last batch for a while.  

Surf at Folly is knee high and weak at the lower tide this morning. There is not much push, so not likely to pick up so much on the incoming tide.

Winds are south, south-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is a bit textured with added bump due to the light southwest wind direction.  

Look for winds to rotate west at 5-10 knots this afternoon into the evening, which should continue producing that semi-choppy, disorganized wave until nightfall.   

We are just coming off a low tide, and high tide will be at 3:55 p.m. The next low tide will be late tonight at 10:07 p.m.

We have small, weak surf this morning. Surf looks small for the remainder of the work week. Potential waves for Sunday as Tropical Cyclone Claudette moves on-shore in the Central Gulf Coast. This will begin to affect our weather and our surf Monday through Wednesday in building south-westerly wind-chop swell as inclement weather passes to our west, and a cold front moves through during the middle of next week. We then see a high angled north-east wind swell fill in late next week behind the front.  

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: Tropical Cyclone Claudette will weaken as it moves through the Southeast Sunday and Sunday night. A cold front will pass through the local area Tuesday through Wednesday. Broad low pressure will then linger across the region into late next week.”

It’s 81* and sunny at the beach. It’s perfect out here this morning. Look for a high of 84* mostly sunny skies today with chances of rain increasing throughout the day into the night. You should expect to see showers all week, as Claudette moves into the area.

Water temperature is around 81*.

Sunrise is at 6:12 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:30 p.m.

Winds are north-east at 5 knots, and surf zone is clean.

We have small surf this morning. Surf looks small for the remainder of the work week. Saturday we start to see increasing south-west winds pushing up some small, choppy wind swell Saturday afternoon into Sunday as Tropical Cyclone Three moves on-shore in the Central Gulf Coast. This will begin to affect our weather and our surf Monday through Wednesday in building south-westerly wind-chop swell as inclement weather passes to our west, and a cold front moves through during the middle of next week. We then see a high angled north-east wind swell fill in late next week behind the front.   

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through Saturday. Unsettled weather is expected Saturday night through the middle of next week as a Gulf low moves through, followed by a cold front.”

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