Choppy

Time of Report: 8 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thigh. building
Traffic: None
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None

Good morning this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, May 22 at 8:45a.m.   

Surf is beginning to slowly build knee-thigh drifty north-east wind-swell.  

Winds are moderate out of the north-east 15+ mph some drift and chop as a result.

We had a high tide around 10:41 a.m., and low tide is at 4:33 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 4.3 feet at 5 seconds in medium period ENE swell.   

Surfs is beginning to slowly build in high angled north-east wind-swell this Monday morning. This weeks forecast is extremely difficult. A high pressure will sit just north bringing hard north-east winds which could give us some drifty NE wind-swell early to mid-week. But were also seeing a weak low pressure system  developing now through mid-week just east of the Bahamas that could also send us a small pulse of SE ground-swell.  Late week models also are showing another low to develop over central Florida and eventually push off their coastline and could generate another ESE swell (this low looks a lot more promising). If you remember Bertha a few years back this is a very similar set-up and Bertha was late May as well. Interesting. There is plenty of uncertainty and I’m positive these models will shift and change with every update. Keep your eyes on it I think this week we could have some windows of glory especially late week, just be patient.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “A cold front will remain stalled just south of the area through Tuesday, then high pressure will build from the north through late week. A coastal low pressure system could affect the area next weekend.”

Its 70* and partly cloudy this morning. Look for clouds to continue through today with a high of 76*.  

Water temperature is 75*.

Sunrise is at 6:19 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:14 p.m.
