Waves at The Washout are running knee to thigh high at the morning’s lower tide. It shows potential to build, so there could be a bigger set as the tide comes in early afternoon for the longboard.

We see waves build thigh, maybe waist, high early afternoon as the tide comes in. Surf drops back out around dark with the lower tide. Look for south wind swell for Saturday averaging waist high, with smaller waves in the forecast late in the weekend. Tropical Storm Irma is in the Central Atlantic moving west and heading in our general direction, but any swell from this system would be a week to 10 days out.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A warm front will lift north of the region today as Tropical Depression Harvey moves across the lower Mississippi Valley. A cold front will approach from the north this weekend. High pressure will then prevail early next week before another front approaches the region during the second half of next week.”
It is 76* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 85* with sun and passing clouds. There is a 30% chance of a thunderstorm.
Water temperature has dropped with these north winds. It is 80*.
