Good Morning. This is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Sunday, Sept., 10 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Washout are head high to overhead sets in south-east ground swell and NE wind swell from Hurricane Irma. Chilly air and wind is here this morning, come on in and get a wetsuit jacket for the fall season. You’re probably going to get a lot of use out of it this year.

There is a lot of swell, but it’s very windy and rainy.

Winds are north/north-east at 25 to 35 knots, and surf is side-shore and choppy.

Look for north-east winds increasing to 35-45 knots this afternoon and choppier conditions later today as we start to see bands from hurricane Irma.

High tide is at 11:28 a.m., and low tide will be at 5:40 p.m

Edisto Buoy is reading 15 ft. at 10 seconds in long period south-east ground swell with strong NE winds.

Hurricane Irma has made landfall on the US Mainland of the Florida Keys. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people of Florida and hoping for the best for them. Please be careful here in Charleston, as Irma is likely to bring us some strong winds, flooding and storm surge. Ground swell from hurricane Irma continues today strong north/north-east winds and choppy conditions. The wind is on-shore today and into Monday in the 35-55 range, with long period swell being replaced by big wind-swell. Believe it or not, there is another hurricane behind Irma, Hurricane Jose, and this should send more swell our way during the middle of next week.  Hurricane season is in full effect right now.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through tonight. Powerful Hurricane Irma will impact Florida Saturday night and Sunday, moving northward through early next week. Refer to the latest advisory on Irma issued by the National Hurricane Center.”  It is 65* and rainy this morning. Look for a high of 71* with 60% chance of rain this afternoon.  Water temperature is around 81*.

Sunset is at 7:35 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:58 a.m.

Good Morning. This is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, Sept., 9 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Washout are shoulder to head high with overhead high sets in south-east ground swell and NE windswell from Hurricane Irma.

There are a lot of people at The Washout, but a lot of swell, so spread out some, because there are waves across the entire beach.

Winds are north/north-east at 15 to 25 knots, and surf is side-shore and bumpy, but fairly clean.

Look for north-east winds increasing to 25-35 knots this afternoon and choppier conditions later today.

There is some current swirling around out there with this big ground-swell, but it looks pretty good out there this morning.

High tide is at 910:39 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:50 p.m

Edisto Buoy is reading 12 ft. at 7.4 seconds in long period south-east ground swell with NE winds.

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma later this week as it is likely to bring us some wind and storm surge. Ground swell from hurricane Irma will continue today and sunday with strong north/north-east winds. The wind will likely increase on-shore into Sunday and Monday, with long period swell being replaced by big wind-swell, but stay tuned as Irma continues to develop and we get a better read on her track over the next few days. Believe it or not, there is another hurricane behind Irma, Hurricane Jose, and this should send more swell our way during the middle of next week.  Hurricane season is in full effect right now.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through tonight.
