Good Morning. This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, Sept. 21 at 8:30 a.m.
Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh high. There is an occasional waist high set.
Surf is breaking up in the rocks this morning at the higher tide, but should get better form late-morning as the tide drops some.
Surf zone is clean.
We have trace north-west winds this morning. We look for moderate south winds at 5 to 10 knots this afternoon, and fairly clean surf today.
High tide is at 9:21 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:24 pm. The next high tide is at 9:33 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft. at 8 seconds in medium period easterly swell.
Surf looks smaller today, and is best for the longboard or the fish. We should see inconsistent long period swell late afternoon in the thigh to waist high range as the tide pushes in. Next up in the epic hurricane swell batting order is Hurricane Maria, which will move north of Puerto Rico today. She will be smack dab in our swell window starting Saturday. We look for another big ground-swell building Friday afternoon and into your weekend. Winds trend north at 15 knots – side-shore – for the period. Swell begins to fade Tuesday of next week. Another big swell in the forecast for a historic hurricane surf season.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through this weekend. The high will weaken and shift inland as Hurricane Maria tracks northward off the Southeast U.S. coast through the first half of next week.”
We have perfect weather today. It is 77* and sunny. Expect a hot day with a high of 87* and sun. There is a 40% chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.
Water temperature is around 80*.
Sunset is at 7:16 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:07 a.m.
