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

Taste of Folly is today so come by for a good time! Center Street will be closed, however.

Surf at The Washout this morning is flat.  

Winds are north-east at 7 knots, and surf zone is choppy.  

Look for winds to stay the same all day.  

We have a low tide at 12:12 p.m. We have a high tide at 6:18 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 ft at 7 seconds in a short period wind swell.

Another flat morning on Folly, but with the low-pressure incoming and building tomorrow there should be big drifty surf tomorrow with nice clean leftovers on Monday morning. We expect the surf to subside very quick on Monday so get out as soon as you can if possible.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. Strengthening low pressure will track across the region tonight and Sunday followed by colder high pressure into mid next week. Another cold front could then move through late Thursday followed by even colder higher pressure.”

It’s sunny this morning and 48*. Look for a high of 59* today with mostly sun.

Water Temperature is hovering around 56*.

Sunrise is at 7:23 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:37 p.m.

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

Surf at The Washout this morning is flat – shin high.  

Winds are north-west at 10 knots, and surf zone is sheet-glass clean.  

Look for winds to stay the same all day but slightly subsiding in the evening.  

We have a low tide at 11:27 a.m. We have a high tide at 5:34 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.2 ft at 5 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell.

It is flat at the low tide this morning, but possibly high tide could produce a fun longboard wave. Keep an eye on Sunday as we have a stormy wind swell that appears to be hitting. It will be choppy and disorganized and the wind switch in the afternoon will allow the swell to fade quick, but Monday morning could be the best time to go so check back in for more updates tomorrow.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will prevail through the end of the week. Strengthening low pressure will track across the region Saturday night and Sunday followed by colder high pressure into mid week. Another cold front could impact the area Thursday.”

It’s cool and sunny this morning. It’s 45*. Look for a high of 59* today with mostly clouds.

Water Temperature is hovering around 56* after this little cold snap.

Sunrise is at 7:23 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 13 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high. It looks like it has the potential for a long-board glide as the tide comes in late morning.  

Winds are north-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is sheet-glass clean.  

Look for winds to rotate west today at 5 to 10 knots. We see small a semi-clean surf zone today.  

We have a low tide at 10:39 a.m. We have a high tide at 4:42 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell. There is a little swell at the buoy, so perhaps hope for a glide on the log if you need to get wet in mid-January.

A low pressure develops well off-shore today, but it’s not likely to push up too much swell into as it quickly tracks north-east and winds stay strong off-shore Friday. Saturday sees small but increasing easterly wind swell rotate east then south overnight on Saturday. This south wind and swell increases Sunday ahead of a strong cold front and low pressure system moving through our beaches Sunday. There should be some stormy surf to ride on Sunday, with poor form. Winds go strong west overnight Sunday after a strong cold-front passage, and waves will be blown flat to start the upcoming work week.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will extend across the region through Friday as low pressure develops and moves well offshore of the Southeast U.S. Coast. An area of strengthening low pressure will track across the Southeast U.S. Saturday night and Sunday bringing widespread rainfall. After a strong cold front pushes offshore Sunday, high pressure will prevail through the middle of next week.”

It’s cool and cloudy this morning. It’s 47*. Look for a high of 56* today with mostly clouds. If you want the beach to yourself, this is the day for it.  

Water Temperature is hovering around 56* after this little cold snap.

Sunrise is at 7:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:34 p.m.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, January 12 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is flat. Maybe knee high, but it has terrible form.

Winds are north at 15 knots, and surf zone is semi-choppy and drifty; north-to-south.    

Look for winds to rotate north-east today at 5 to 10 knots. We see small semi-choppy surf all day.

We have a low tide at 9:56 a.m. We have a high tide at 3:51 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2 ft at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell with a short-period north-east wind swell 3.6 ft at 7 seconds.

North flow keeps surf small for today. A low pressure develops offshore late Wednesday, but it’s not likely to push up much swell into Thursday as it quickly tracks north-east and winds stay strong off-shore through Friday. Saturday sees small but increasing easterly wind swell rotate south overnight. This south wind and swell increases Sunday ahead of a strong cold front and low pressure system moving through our beaches Sunday. If winds switch off-shore Sunday afternoon, there is a chance for a clean up. Depends on the timing of the front.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will prevail today. Low pressure will develop offshore and will track northeast Thursday into Friday. After a brief period of high pressure late week into early this weekend, low pressure will track across the Southeast Saturday night and Sunday. After a trailing cold front pushes offshore Sunday, high pressure will prevail through the middle of next week.”

It’s cold and sunny this morning. It’s 41*. Look for a high of 56* today with lots of sun. If you want the beach to yourself, this is the day for it.  

Water Temperature is hovering around 56* after this little cold snap.

Sunrise is at 7:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:33 p.m.
