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

Surf at Folly is knee- high and not to looking to great this morning. It’s pretty weak.

Winds are north at 5 knots, and surf zone is side-shore and very clean.  

Look for winds to remain light from the north-east today, and surf zone should remain semi-clean today, with small surf in the forecast.    

Low tide this morning at 11:43 a.m., high tide will be at 6:03 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data is showing 2 ft at 6 seconds in a small, medium-period east/south-east swell.     

Surf is best for the log today, with knee-high surf and semi-clean conditions by this afternoon. We see small surf to start your work week, but we have Hurricane Zeta entering the Gulf of Mexico The storm is forecasted to further strengthen and hit somewhere near Louisiana. Zeta will merge with an oncoming cold front that will eventually affect our marine area Thursday with strong south winds and a quick shot of south wind swell. Look for surf to build Thursday in choppy, drifty conditions. This fades Friday morning with strong offshore winds, colder temps and hopefully a few leftovers early in the morning. We see high-angled north-east wind swell build through the weekend behind the cold front, and this high angled north-east wind swell should carry into early in the work week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will linger through the middle of the week. A storm system will bring impacts to the region Thursday, followed by high pressure Friday into the weekend.”

It’s 64* this morning with sun at the beach. We have perfect beach weather. Look for a high today of 75* and sun.   

Water temperature is 74*.

Sunrise is at 7:33 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:32 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data is showing 2.5 ft at 10 seconds in a long-period east/north-east ground swell, mostly passing by our beaches.     

We see small surf to start your work week, but we have Tropical Storm Zeta entering the Gulf of Mexico The storm is forecasted to further strengthen to Hurricane status and hit somewhere near Louisiana. Zeta will merge with an oncoming cold front that will eventually effect our marine area late this coming week. Look for surf to build Thursday in a quick shot of south wind swell. This fades into Friday after a cold front passage, when winds go strong off-shore. We see high-angled north-east wind swell fill in for the weekend behind the cold front.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will linger through the middle of the week. A storm system will then bring impacts to the region Thursday with high pressure returning by the weekend.”

It’s 65* this morning with clouds at the beach. Look for a high today of 75* with some sun behind clouds.

Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data is showing 4.6 ft at 11 seconds in a long-period east ground swell.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, October 24 at 7:30 a.m.    

Keep in mind, there are no more parking restriction at Folly Beach. Parking is now available on Center Street and all side-streets.

The Folly Beach Pier is now closed as they prepare to tear it down and build a new structure.

Surf at Folly is Thigh-waist+ really drained out with low tide this morning. Look for improvement mid-morning on the tide push.

Winds are very light from the west, and surf zone is very clean.

Look for winds to come more onshore from the east and increase around 10 by mid-afternoon. This should add some bump and a wind-chop to the surf zone.  

Low tide this morning at 8:48 a.m., high tide will be at 3:33 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data is showing 7.2 ft at 12 seconds in a long-period east ground swell.    

Surf is still showing this morning thigh-waist high might be a plus set when tide comes in. Look for this swell to slowly fade today into the afternoon hours.  We also have Invest 95 firing up again south of the Caribbean, and it could move into our swell window, but it’s not looking super promising right now. We should see some pre-frontal trade-wind swell during the middle of next week, as a cold front approaches late week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail today before an upper disturbance passes through tonight. A weak cold front will then move through Sunday night, followed by high pressure. A storm system is expected to bring impacts to the region late next week.”

It’s 72* this morning with clouds at the beach and showers. Look for a high today of 82* and partly cloudy skies. Showers developing late/overnight.

Water temperature is 72*.

Sunrise is at 7:30 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:36 p.m.
