Good morning this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, September 19 at 8:30 a.m.   

New Gary Wilson boards are in the shop. Just in time for our next hurricane swell. Surf fast and take chances.

Waves at Folly this morning are averaging waist-to-stomach high at the lower tide this morning in a building south-east ground swell. It’s kind of shutting down, early. It’ll likely improve on the incoming late morning. Just keep an eye on the winds.

Winds are north/north-east at 10 knots. Surf zone is side-shore and semi-clean, early. There are rain showers in the area.

Winds rotate north-east and will increase 15 to 20 knots mid-afternoon. We see a choppy, drifty surf zone this afternoon.

Low tide is at 9:11 a.m., and high tide will be at 3:47 p.m. The next low tide is at 10:14 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 4.3 feet at 11 seconds in a long-period south-east ground swell compliments of  Hurricane Fiona.

Ground swell is starting to build from Hurricane Fiona, which will be our main swell-maker this week.  North-east winds will be the fly in the soup today. Look for more moderate winds and continued swell on Tuesday. This builds mid-week, with winds forecast to be westerly for Thursday. Could be a good run of waves through mid-week. Winds come strong north-east on Friday, so get it mid-week if you can. Leash up and be a hero.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will expand over our area from the northwest through midweek. A dry cold front is forecasted to move through the region Thursday night, followed by cooler and dry weather through next weekend.”

Water Temperature is around 82*.

It’s 75* with clouds and some showers this morning. Look for a high of 83* with clouds and sun mixed. Don’t be surprised to see a shower today.   

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m., and sunset will be at 7:20 p.m.
