Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, August 19 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at The Washout this morning is in the knee-to-thigh high range with perhaps a slightly larger set. It is weak, and probably best for a longboard.
Winds are moderate out of the WSW currently around 8 knots making for semi-clean conditions.
Look for winds from the south today at 5 1o 10 knots, and we see bumpy small surf as the tide goes out late afternoon.
High tide is at 11 a.m., and low tide will be at 5 p.m.
The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 ft at 5 seconds in a south-west wind swell.
High pressure looks to build back in over our marine area early this week, resulting in small surf today. We should see small south wind swell build some for Tuesday for the longboard. This trend continues on-and-off most of your work week as south/south-west winds trend small on-shore wind-swell for our beaches. It looks like we’ll see mostly long-board or grovler-board waves this week.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure and an inland trough will prevail until late week when a cold front possibly affects the area.”
It’s 79* with some clouds mixed with sunshine. Look for a high of 87* with a 40% chance of rain this afternoon.
Water temperature is around 86*.
Sunrise is at 6:45 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:59 p.m.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, August 18th at 7:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is in the thigh-belly high range still some slight drift and current.

Winds are moderate out of the WSW currently around 12mph making for semi-clean conditions.

Look for winds to continue WSW through the afternoon hours.

We’ll have a high tide at 10:20 a.m., and a low tide at 4:21 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 6.6 ft at 7 seconds in a SSW wind swell.

Surf this morning looks decent overall running thigh to belly with some slight drift down the beach. This swell fades throughout the day into early tomorrow so get on it while it last. Looking ahead high pressure looks to build back in over our marine area resulting in small surf for the early part of the work week. Keep your eyes on the tropics as always this time of year.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stationary front will linger just west of the area early this week before dissipating. Atlantic high pressure and an inland trough will then prevail into late week before a cold front approaches but likely stalls before reaching the area.”

It’s 82* with some clouds mixed with sunshine. Look for a high of 88* with some sun returning after a soaking last few days.

Water temperature is around 86*.

Sunrise is at 6:43 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:02 p.m.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, August 17 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is in the chest to head high range.

Winds are whipping from the S at 15-20 knots, and surf is mostly blown out with some big sections if you’re in the right spot.  Big current & disorganized conditions this morning.

Look for winds to remain hard out of the S all day as showers and thunderstorms make their way through over the course of the day.

We’ll have a high tide at 9:42 a.m., and a low tide at 3:42 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:09 p.m. The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.9 ft at 6 seconds in a SSW wind swell.  Wonky storm-like surf out there this morning. Chunky conditions with big drops and a few makeable sections.  Conditions should remain about the same over the course of the day, depending on what the thunderstorms do to the wind this afternoon. This wind swell drops off a bit for Sunday but we could see some residual size if the wind holds up. Surf looks small into the beginning of the work week. As of right now, there is not anything really firing up in the tropics.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A weak low pressure system will track northeast along the Georgia and South Carolina coast today. A stationary front will linger nearby through Sunday. Atlantic high pressure and an inland trough will then prevail through much of the week.

It’s 82* with showers at the beach. Look for a high of 83* today, with rain and thunderstorms.

Water temperature is around 86*.

Sunrise is at 6:43 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:02 p.m.
