Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, September 23 at 8:30 a.m.

We actually got a few Billabong men’s spring suits and O’Neill jackets in, so come grab one while we have a few left. It has cooled off a good bit late week.

Surf at the Washout is waist-to-stomach high. Maybe slightly larger. It’s nice and clean this morning. Looks fun for the high-volume board. It is soft at the higher tide but there is a small, long-period ground swell running, and it looks really fun.

Winds are north-west at 5 to 10 knots and should continue off-shore today. Probably a good day to get wet with clean, fall-like conditions all day.  

We have a high tide at 10:30 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:16 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:26 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 10 seconds in a long-period east/south-east ground swell.

After a cold front passage overnight, winds are more offshore and there is fun, small ground swell from what is now Tropical Depression Peter. This trend continues into Friday. Look for waves to drop off for the weekend as north-east flow increases and sends north-easterly swell past our beaches and down to Florida. But the weather will be beautiful.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “High pressure will build across the region today, then prevail this weekend through the middle of next week.”

It’s a beautiful 67* and sunny. Look for a high of 78* and sun today.

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:08 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:15 p.m.

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

Welcome to the official first day of fall.

We actually got a few Billabong men’s spring suits and O’Neill jackets in, so come grab one while we have a few left as it’ll cool off at the beach later this week.

Surf at the Washout is knee-high with a thigh set.  

Winds are south/south-east at 10 knots. Surf is choppy and weak.

Look for south/south-east winds to continue today at 10 knots. We see a bumpy surf zone all day.   

WE have a high tide at 9:23 a.m., and low tide will be at3:35 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:48 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.3 ft. at 7 seconds in a short period easterly wind swell. Hopefully the swell will swing more south-east as the day wears on.     

Surf is still smaller this morning, but after a cold front passage on Thursday, winds will come more offshore and clean up a fun, small ground swell from what is now Tropical Depression Peter. This trend continues into Friday. Look for waves to drop off for the weekend as north-east flow increases and sends north-easterly swell past our beaches and down to Florida. But the weather will be beautiful.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Deep tropical moisture will lead to wet conditions today before a cold front moves through the area this evening into tonight. Cooler and drier high pressure will then prevail across the region into early next week.”

It’s 77* this morning with lots of sun. We expect partly cloudy skies with thunderstorms this afternoon and with a high of 81*.  

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:07 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:17 p.m.

We actually got a few men’s spring suits in, so come grab one while we have a few left as it’ll cool off at the beach later this week.

Surf at the Washout is thigh-to-waist with a stomach high set in a choppy easterly wind swell with a high angle on it. It is soft and very disorganized at the higher tide, and should keep the same form today.

Winds are east at 15 to 20, and there is a drift down the beach.  

Look for easterly winds at 15 to 20 knots today, and we see choppy east wind swell building late afternoon as the tide comes in.  

We are coming off a high tide, and low tide will be at 2:06 p.m. The the next high tide will be at 8:30 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 4.9 ft at 6 seconds in a short period easterly wind swell, with a south-east ground swell mixed in; 1 ft at 10 seconds.    

We see increasing easterly wind swell in our forecast for today with easterly winds keeping surf choppy and weather unsettled. Winds come more on-shore for Tuesday and Wednesday and look for choppy wind-swell to continue into mid-week. After a cold front passage on Thursday, winds well come more offshore and clean up small ground swell from what is now Tropical Storm Peter. Look for waves to drop off late week as north-east flow increases and sends north-easterly swell past our beaches and down to Florida.   

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A wet weather pattern will prevail into the middle of the week. A cold front will move through the area Wednesday night into early Thursday, followed by drier high pressure prevailing through the weekend.”
