Friday, Sept. 11

Side-shore, semi-chop. Weak.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee. Thigh on incoming.
Traffic: Some.
Parking: Plenty early. Parking restrictions in place Friday through Sunday.
Dangers: Some jelly fish stings reported. Some small sharks reported.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 a.m.    

You can now park in right-of-ways on the side streets at Folly Monday through Thursday. Keep in mind parking restrictions still apply Friday through Sunday. Check the City of Folly Beach’s Web site for more information.

We still have a mandatory mask ordinance in effect for Folly Beach.

Surf at Folly this morning is knee-high at low tide. We’ll likely see a thigh-high set as the tide comes in.

Winds are from the north-east at 5 to 10 knots. Surf is weak and semi-clean.

Look for winds to turn east this afternoon at 10 to 12 knots, adding side-shore bump to the surf zone.

Low tide is at 8:37 a.m., high tide will be at 3:09 p.m. The next low tide is at 9:37 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.3 ft at 8 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell.   

Surf is knee-high range this morning, with semi-clean, side-shore conditions. It could pick up a bit on the incoming. For Saturday, we should start seeing increasing easterly wind-swell in the waist-to-stomach high range, building some on Sunday. We now have Tropical Storm Paulette moving into the Eastern Atlantic, and Tropical Storm Rene in the Central Atlantic. Paulette could send some more significant long-period easterly ground swell our way Monday and into the middle of the work week. We expect significant easterly swell for the majority of the next work-week, but swell trends north-east late in the work week, and might fall off some. Either way, get your chores done and wax your stick.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A surface trough will impact the region into the weekend. A cold front will drop through the area Monday night, followed by high pressure through late next week.”

It’s 80* and cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 84* with sun and clouds, and a 50% chance of rain this afternoon.   

Water temperature is 84*.  

Sunrise is at 7:01 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:29 p.m.
