Friday, January 21

Semi-clean, high angled north-east wind waves.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thigh. Building.
Traffic: None.
Parking: Lots.
Dangers: Ice overnight.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, January 21 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high. It’s soft at the higher tide.

Winds are north at a pretty good clip. It’s blowing 15 to 18 knots. It’s side-shore, drifty and semi-clean.

Look for north winds to continue today at 15 with gusts to 20. There is just some high angled north wind swell in the water for today.

High tide is at 9:42 a.m., and low tide will be at 4 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:04 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 8 ft at 7 seconds in a building, medium period north-east wind generated swell, much of which is headed to Florida for the weekend.

We have high angled north-east wind swell on tap starting to build today. We see a cold front stall offshore today. Look increasing east/north-east swell with a high angle on it as a low pressure system develops off-shore along this stalled cold front. This low begins to track north-east for Saturday. Surf and wind will be increasing significantly into Saturday as north-east wind ramp up to 30 knots with ice in the forecast overnight for tonight.  There should be plenty of medium-sized north-east wind waves mixed with easterly swell for Saturday, but the weather and the quality of the surf won’t be great because of strong north winds and cold weather. This swell drops off for Sunday. Everyone you know is heading to Florida, so gas up the mini-van.   

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Low pressure will develop along the front today then move northeast tonight. This low will produce a period of freezing rain in some areas. Dry high pressure will then build from the west Saturday through Monday. Low pressure could affect the area next Tuesday, followed by another cold front by the middle of next week.”

The weather pretty much sucks at the beach, unless you love the coast of Oregon (which I do, by the way). It’s 39* and raining. Expect rain all day with a high of around 40*. There should be  some ice overnight.

Water Temperature has gone down. It’s hovering around 52*. It’s mid-January.

Sunrise is at 7:20 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:41 p.m.
