Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 19 at 9:00 a.m.  

Now is a good time to order a custom Stewart, as we’ll be placing an order this week for spring. Call us at 843-588-9175.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee-waist high maybe a bigger set on the incoming tide in a SSW wind-swell.  

Winds are South/south-west at 15-20 mph, and surf zone is very drifty down the beach and choppy.

Winds continue SSW today at 15+ knots becoming west around noon after the front pushes through the area.

We are having a low tide at report time, and high tide is at 3:20 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is not showing a reading this morning. However Surfline has stated a 4.3 ft at 5 seconds in short period SSW wind-swell.  

Its building this morning into the waist high zone with lots of drift and wind on it early. Could clean up slightly around noon and be a decent window to get wet.  This small quick shot of swell begins to fade early this afternoon into the start of the work week. Looking ahead not much action lots of North north-east swell in the Atlantic heading to Florida. Next weekend some models are showing a low develop in the gulf we will keep you posted. But for now its going to be small and cold this week!  
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front is expected to move through this morning, followed by high pressure prevailing through the middle of the week. A low pressure system could impact the area this weekend.”
 

It’s cloudy with showers and 64*. Look for a high of 65* showers are possible.    

 
 

Water temperature is up to 60*, but should drop down to the upper 50s over the weekend with the colder northerly flow.

Sunrise is at 7:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:36 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is not showing a reading this morning. However Surfline has stated a 4.3 ft easterly swell showing offshore.  

We have north-east winds today and a high angled north-east wind swell averaging thigh high with bigger sets on the incoming tide. The angle should start to rotate more easterly through today.

Surf should increase some on Sunday, before getting blown down late day on Sunday, but keep an eye on the timing of the front Saturday into Sunday.  
 
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A warm front will lift through the region later today and this evening. A cold front is expected to move through late tonight into Sunday, followed by cold and dry high pressure into the  middle of next week. A low pressure system could impact the region next weekend.”

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January 16 at 8:30 a.m.  

Now is a good time to order a custom Stewart, as we’ll be placing an order this week for spring. Call us at 843-588-9175.

Surf at Folly this morning is waist-to-stomach high with a chest-high set and it has some bump in it, but there are some clean sections as the tide comes in this morning.  It’s closing out a bit at the low tide, but should get better in the incoming.

Winds are light from the west at about 5-10 knots until wind rotates north at 15 to 20 knots late day after a cold front passage. Overall, surf should stay clean until late afternoon.

We have a high tide at 12:09 a.m., and a low tide will be at 6:27 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.9 ft at 10 seconds in south-east swell.

This south trade-wind swell continues today, but surf is dropping as a cold front moves through our waters. Swell rotates from the north-east in a high angled north-east wind swell for Friday. This north-east wind swell continues on Saturday. Sunday sees winds from the south/south-west ahead of a stronger cold front. Surf should increase some on Sunday, before getting blown down late day on Sunday as north winds increase behind a strong cold-front. 
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A cold front will cross the area today, followed by high pressure through Saturday. Another cold front is expected to move through on Sunday, followed by cold and dry high pressure through the middle of next week.”

It’s 65* this morning some rain and clouds. Look for a high of 75* today with rain and clouds. Rain ends late.   

Water temperature is up to 60* with the warm flow over the weekend, but that will likely go back down with more seasonable weather returning over the weekend.

Sunrise is at 7:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:36 p.m.
