Monday, Sept. 9

Choppy all day.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thigh. Rare waist.
Traffic: Not much. Lots of clean up going on.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Monday, Sept. 9 at 8:30 a.m.    

Surf at The Washout this morning is running knee to thigh high with perhaps a waist high set.

Winds are SSW at 10 to 15 knots, and surf is choppy this morning.

Look for winds to remain from the south today at 10 to 12 knots, with choppy surf all day.

We have a low tide at 11 a.m., and a high tide will be at 5:38 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 10 seconds in an easterly ground swell with a south wind swell 2 ft at 4 seconds.

We have choppy south/south-west wind waves on top of an easterly ground swell in the water this morning, and look for that trend to continue today. Despite the long period, waves are disorganized and it doesn’t look like a whole ton of fun, but it is rideable on a higher volume board. Our next significant swell should materialize this weekend as a tropical wave approaches to our south, sending another decent sized ground swell our way, with moderate winds from the east causing some chop on the ground swell. Get ready for that. Should be fun, and a lot less destruction. There are also a few spots to watch in the tropics, but we’ll monitor those for two weeks out.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stationary front will linger over or near the area through Tuesday then dissipate. High pressure is forecasted to build in from the north midweek. A weak tropical wave should pass to our south late in the week, bringing an increased chance of rain.”

It’s 83* at the beach this morning and partly cloudy. Look for a high of 88* with partly cloudy skies.

Water temperature has dropped some, but it’s still 81*.

Sunrise is at 6:59 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:36 p.m.
