Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January 21 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is flat-ankle and weak.     

Winds are west/north-west and surf zone is mostly clean with some added texture.

Look for winds to rotate west/south-west at 5-10 knots and remain this direction through the remainder of the day. We will continue to see small waves and a flat surf zone all day.

We are coming off a low tide this morning 7:46 a.m., and high tide will be at 1:59 p.m. Low tide this evening will be 8:05 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a 2.3 ft. at 4 seconds in a short-period west/south-westerly wind-swell.       

For now, there is not much hope for meaningful surf this week as winds stay side/offshore from the west/south-west Thursday into Friday. Perhaps a small south-west wind swell bump on Friday, but side-shore winds late in the work week make for poor conditions. Winds go strong north-east on Saturday, and we should see some high-angled, thigh-high north-east wind swell on Saturday with lots of current and semi-choppy conditions. Surf could pick up late Monday into Tuesday as another cold front approaches our marine area and brings some pre-frontal south wind swell.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will subside today as a cold front advances from the northwest. The front will then move offshore Friday, with high pressure returning for the weekend. Another cold front is expected to affect the area Monday into Tuesday.”

It is 52* with clouds this morning. Look for a cloudy beach day with a high of 59*.

Water temperature is down to 52*.

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:43 p.m.

Surf at Folly is flat and weak.     

Winds are west/south-west and surf zone is relatively clean.

Look for winds to rotate north-westerly at 10 to 15 knots and remain straight offshore today. We see small waves and a flat surf zone all day. .

We are coming off a low tide this morning, and high tide will be at 1:08 p.m. Low tide will be at 7:10 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a very small 3.2 ft. at 4 seconds in a short-period west/south-westerly wind-swell.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “A cold front will sweep across the region today. High pressure will build over the area tonight and will gradually weaken on Thursday. Another cold front is forecast to move through the region on Friday, followed by high pressure for the weekend. A secondary cold front is expected to affect the area early next week.”

It is 52* with clouds this morning. Look for a nice beach day with sun today and a high of 61*.

Water temperature is down to 52*.

Good morning, this is Brad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, January 19 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is ankle high and glassy this morning.    

Winds are west-north-west this morning at 5 knots, and surf zone is mostly offshore. Surf is weak and clean.

Look for winds to remain low out of the west today, shifting to north-west this afternoon. Surf will likely remain small and glassy throughout the day.

We have a high tide at 12:24 p.m., and a low tide at 6:26 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a very small 2.9 ft. at 4 seconds in a short-period west/south-westerly wind-swell.       

Surf stays small today and into the first half of our work week, with off-shore winds and no real swell-makers in the Atlantic. Another cold front looks to move though during the latter part of the work week, Friday-Sunday and might push up another small, pre-frontal, choppy north-east wind-swell into Friday morning. Look forward to moderate winds ranging 10-15 knots. We’ll keep you posted as more develops.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail before a weak cold front passes through the region on Friday, followed by high pressure for the weekend. A stronger cold front is expected to effect the area early next week.”

It is 40* with sunny skies this morning. Look for sun today and a high of 58*.

Water temperature is down to 52*.

Sunrise is at 7:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.
