Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, August 15 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at The Washout this morning is knee to thigh high.
Winds are south at 5 to 10 knots, and surf is semi-choppy. Probably best for the long-board this morning.
Look for winds to remain from the south today at 10 knots, with variable winds possible during thunderstorms.
We have a high tide early this morning, and low tide will be at 2:25 p.m. The next high tide is at 8:56 p.m.
The Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft at 6 seconds in a combination of medium period south swell, and south-east wind swell.
Surf looks small today, in the knee to thigh high range in a weak south wind swell. We should see choppy south-west wind swell build for Friday and Saturday as a front lingers in our area, creating unsettled weather and choppy south-west wind waves averaging thigh to waist high. This wind swell drops off Sunday and 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 front will linger over the area through Saturday before
Atlantic high pressure rebuilds.”
It’s 81* with sun behind clouds this morning. Look for a high of 88* and thunderstorms likely today, especially this afternoon.
Water temperature is around 84*.
Sunrise is at 6:38 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.
Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, August 14th at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is ankle to knee high.

Winds are light out of the south this morning and surf is clean.

Look for winds to pick up later today 15 mph continued from the south.

Tide is outgoing now. We have a low tide at 1:46 p.m., and a high tide at 8:26 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 4 seconds in short period SW wind-swell.

Surf has continued to drop into this Wednesday morning knee high at best and very weak overall. Looking into the rest of the work week a cold front impacts our marine area tonight. This front looks to push in some south wind-swell into the waist+ range Thursday into Friday. High pressure returns back and trade-swell could reinforce for the weekend.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front is expected to move into the area late this afternoon, then linger into Friday before slowly moving offshore. Atlantic high pressure will rebuild over the weekend and prevail into early next week.”

 

It’s 81* with some passing showers and thunderstorms this morning. Look for a high of 89*

Water temperature is around 84*.

Sunrise is at 6:38 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.

Good morning, this is Annie with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, August 13th at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee high.

Winds are light and variable this morning and surf is clean.

Look for winds to switch from the S later today, remaining light under 10 knots.

Tide is outgoing now. We have a low tide at 1:00 p.m., and a high tide at 7:36 p.m.  The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.0 ft at 8 seconds in a south-east swell.    Surf has dropped this morning but is still fun on the right board at outgoing tide this morning. Yet again, we have decently fun, glassy waves.  The remainder of the week looks to stay small with increasing SW winds. We see showers and thunderstorms mixed in over the course of the week, potentially giving way to small windows of cleaner surf, but not much to hold onto this week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure over the region today will give way to an inland surface trough tonight. A cold front is expected to move into the area late Wednesday, then linger into Friday before slowly moving offshore.”

It’s 83* with sunny skies. Look for a high of 90* today with mostly sunny skies.

Water temperature is around 84*.

Sunrise is at 6:38 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, August 12th at 6:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is running knee high and weak.

Winds are light out of the east this morning semi-choppy conditions.

Look for winds to pick up East late morning in the 10 mph range surf will become more choppy as a result.

We have a low tide at 12:16 a.m., and a high tide at 6:59 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.0 ft at 8 seconds in a south-east swell.

Surf has dropped off as expected this morning showing no more than knee high. High pressure has built in but wont last long as a cold front approaches our marine area Thursday rotating our winds South and should produce a decent shot of South wind-swell for our later work week.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A front will remain stalled over or just south of the area through Monday. Drier high pressure will briefly build from the north on Tuesday, then another front will drop into the area late Wednesday and linger into Saturday”

It’s 80* with sunny skies mixed with some clouds this morning.  Look for a high of 89* today with mostly sunny skies.

Water temperature is around 84*.

Sunrise is at 6:38 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:10 p.m.
