Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, January 17 at 8:30 a.m.   

We received a few Catch Surf 7’0” soft-boards this week, which have been hard to find. Come on by and check them out.

Surf at Folly is flat this morning.    

Winds are west this morning at 5 knots, and surf zone is side/off-shore and fairly clean.

Look for winds to increase south-westerly today at 15 to 20 knots this afternoon. Surf will get drifty and choppy this afternoon.

We have a high tide at 10:53 a.m. and a low tide at 5 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a very small 1.1 ft. at 5 seconds in a short-period 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 will move though during the latter part of the work week and might push up another small, pre-frontal, choppy south-west wind-swell. We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail through much of next week. A weak cold front is expected to pass over the region Friday.”

It is 38* with sunny skies this morning. Look for sun today and a high of 52*.

Water temperature is down to 52*.

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

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, January 15 at 8:30 a.m.   

We received a few Catch Surf 7’0” soft-boards this week, which have been hard to find. Come on by and check them out.

Surf at Folly is still knee-to-thigh high and weak at the morning’s high tide.  

Winds are south-west this morning at 10 knots, and surf zone is side/on-shore and choppy.   

Look for winds to continue south-west at 15 to 20 knots this afternoon, building choppy, short-period south-west wind swell later today. It’s likely not anything to write home about.

We have a high tide at 9:27 a.m., and low tide at 3:33 p.m., and another high tide will be at 9:34 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a very small 3 ft. at 4 seconds in a building short-period south-westerly swell.       

A cold-front moves though our area late this afternoon, and this could push up some choppy south-west wind swell later in the day, but we don’t expect much. There might be some poor-quality leftovers on Saturday morning, but westerly winds are forecast to be strong after tonight’s strong cold-front. Surf gets small Sunday and into our work week. Another low will move though during the latter part of next week and might push up another south wind-swell. We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “A strong cold front will move across the area this evening, followed by cool high pressure through the weekend. A low pressure system could affect the region late next week.”

It is 50* with partly cloudy skies this morning. Look for rain beginning this afternoon with a high of 57*.

Water temperature is down to 53*.

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

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January 14 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly is still flat-to-knee high. It’s weak and breaking right on the beach at the morning’s high tide, and is not really rideable.

Winds are west this morning at 5 knots, and surf zone is clean.  

Look for winds to shift west at 10 to 15 knots this afternoon, adding some slight bump to very small surf.   

We have a high tide as of report time, and low tide will be right around 2:48 p.m., and high tide will be at 8:48 p.m.

Virtual buoy data is reading a very small 1 ft. at 7 seconds in a medium period south-easterly swell.       

Not much surf today. Another cold front approaches Friday, and this could push up some choppy south-west wind swell Friday, falling off overnight Friday as winds come strong west, and leave us with small surf for the weekend and straight into early next week. Another low will move though during the latter part of next week and might push up another south wind-swell. We’ll keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail through Wednesday. A weak trough will move through Wednesday night, followed by high pressure into Thursday night. A strong cold front will move approach Friday and pass through Friday night, followed by high pressure through the weekend. A likely weak dry system will move through the area Sunday night into Monday with a more significant system possibly impacting the area near the middle of next week.”

It is a 41* with bright sunshine this morning. We have a beautiful beach day on tap with lots of sun and a high of 57*.

Water temperature is 54*.

Sunrise is at 7:21 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:35 p.m.
