Monday, Feb. 12

Clean early. Bump later.

Time of Report: 8 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thgih. Waist sets.
Traffic: None.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None. Storms later today.

Good morning this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop report and forecast for Monday, February 12 at 8 a.m.

Pier surf is very clean this morning and running around thigh high. Maybe a slightly larger set. It is kinda’ fat with the high tide, but it’s rideable on the high volume board out here, even though it is weak at the high tide. No takers this morning, and  could get better form  late morning as the tide begins to run out.  

Winds are slack, early.  

We expect winds to clock south at 10 knots this afternoon as a storm system moves through our area. This should add some bump to surf in the thigh-to-waist high range.   

We have a high tide at 9:38 a.m. Low tide will be at 3:43 p.m., and your next high tide will be at 10 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is reading 3 feet at 8 seconds in a medium period south swell, which should push up some longboard waves for today.  

Surf should pick up a good bit overnight as our storm system passes though the area and winds come strong from the south-west overnight. Tuesday sees strong, side-shore, westerly winds in the morning and a chewed-up surf zone before winds switch for afternoon on Tuesday (keep an eye on the flags, and try to feel the humidity drop) and clean up the surf (HOPEFULLY). Mid-to-late week, look for smaller surf as high pressure sets up over our marine area. This trend lasts through Friday.

Water temp is around 55*.

The NOAA Marine Forecast for our waters calls for: “A storm system will impact the region through tonight. High pressure will return for the middle and latter half of the week. A cold front could move through the region early in the weekend.”

It’s 60* and cloudy. Look for a high of 64* today with clouds and rain. Some severe storms are possible this evening and overnight.

Sunrise is 7:05 a.m., Sunset 6:02 p.m.

That’s all from us at Ocean Surf Shop. We’ll check back tomorrow.
