Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, June 1 at 8:30 a.m.
The Folly Beach Wahine is this weekend, so make sure to show your support this weekend at the contest shack.
Surf at the Washout is running knee to thigh high.  There is an occasional waist high set.  Bring the longboard or the fish.
Winds are west at 6 knots. Surf is fairly clean.
Winds are expected to remain from the south-west at 10 knots today, and we’ll see semi-choppy surf.
High tide will be at 10:23 a.m. and low tide will be at 4:16 p.m.
The first The Edisto buoy reading 3.3 ft. at 5 seconds in south-east ground swell and south-west wind swell mix.
Off-shore wind swell has dropped off to end the work week, and this pattern will be replaced by south-west wind swell over the weekend. Look for waves averaging thigh high this weekend with mostly choppy conditions Saturday and Sunday as we see moderately strong south-west winds for the period. We’ll keep an eye on the tropics as this is the first official day of hurricane season.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A warm and humid air mass will remain across the region through this weekend. A cold front is forecast to sweep across southeast South Carolina and Georgia late Sunday night into Monday morning. In the wake of the front, a drier air mass is expected to build across the Southeast U.S. through early next week. During the mid to late week, conditions are expected to see gradual increases in deep moisture.”
It is 75* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 89* with partly cloudy skies and a 20% chance of rain.
Water temperature is now up to around 80*.
Sunset is at 8:23 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:11 a.m.
