Surf at Folly this morning is around knee-to-thigh high. Might get a little bigger set on the incoming tide, but it is mushy and weak. Best for a long-board.

Winds are south/south-west at 10 to 15 knots. Surf is choppy.   

Look for winds from the south this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots, and we see choppy surf today.

 We have a high tide at 10:25 a.m. Low tide is at 4:37 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 feet at 8 seconds in medium period south-east swell.    

Some small long-board surf this morning with choppy conditions, this morning. Conditions should fall off some on the lower tide late this afternoon. After a good run of surf over the weekend and early work-week, we see small surf through the weekend, with mainly small southerly wind-swell in the forecast over the next several days.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stationary front over the area will gradually weaken and dissipate by early next week. The region will then remain between Atlantic high pressure and an inland trough of low pressure through next week.”

It’s 80* and mostly cloudy this morning.  Look for a high of 85 and a thunderstorm is expected late morning into early afternoon. Clearing some late day.

Water temperature is up to 87*.  

Sunrise is at 6:37 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:11 p.m.
