July 31 2020

Clean early, bump later.

Time of Report: 7:00 am
Wave Forecast: thigh high maybe a plus set mushy and unorganized
Traffic: Kinda busy.
Parking: limited new restrictions
Dangers: Hurricane

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, July 31 at 7:00 a.m.

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  

Mandatory Mask Ordinance enacted by Folly Beach City Council in late June.

Surf at Folly this morning running thigh high in a south-west wind swell overall looking weak this morning.   

Winds are west/south-west at 5-10 knots and surf is semi-clean, early.

Winds will increase out of the south-west this afternoon at 15-20 knots, making for choppier conditions as the day wears on.

Low tide is at 11:45 a.m., and high tide will be at 6:30 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5 feet at 6 seconds in a short period south/south-west wind swell.  

We are looking at increasing, choppy, short-period south-west wind swell (on-and-off) through the rest of the work week as high pressure dominates to our west over Bermuda, and low pressure lingers inland. Swell should build some late week. This weekend all eyes should be on Hurricane Isaias, which is nearing the Bahamas and headed for south florida area this weekend.  Models show our first pulse of swell hitting our shores early Saturday into Sunday. This should last well into the start of our work week but unfortunately the storm is coming close to our shores and winds will be a factor through much of the event. We will keep you posted but waves on the way!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will prevail into Saturday while a trough of low pressure lingers inland. Hurricane Isaias could affect the area late Sunday into Monday. Atlantic high pressure will then rebuild. Refer to the latest advisory on Hurricane Isaias issued by the National Hurricane Center.”

It’s 80* and cloudy mixed with sun at the beach this morning. Look for a high of 93* at the beach with showers and a thunderstorm today.  

Water temperature is up to 87*.  

Sunrise is at 6:31 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:18 p.m.
