Good Morning. This is Chad with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Friday, Sept., 9 at 8:30 a.m.

Waves at The Washout are shoulder to head high with overhead high sets in south-east ground swell and NE windswell from Hurricane Irma.

There are a lot of people at The Washout, but a lot of swell, so spread out some, because there are waves across the entire beach.

Winds are north/north-east at 15 to 25 knots, and surf is side-shore and bumpy, but fairly clean.

Look for north-east winds increasing to 25-35 knots this afternoon and choppier conditions later today.

There is some current swirling around out there with this big ground-swell, but it looks pretty good out there this morning.

High tide is at 910:39 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:50 p.m

Edisto Buoy is reading 12 ft. at 7.4 seconds in long period south-east ground swell with NE winds.

All eyes are on Hurricane Irma later this week as it is likely to bring us some wind and storm surge. Ground swell from hurricane Irma will continue today and sunday with strong north/north-east winds. The wind will likely increase on-shore into Sunday and Monday, with long period swell being replaced by big wind-swell, but stay tuned as Irma continues to develop and we get a better read on her track over the next few days. Believe it or not, there is another hurricane behind Irma, Hurricane Jose, and this should send more swell our way during the middle of next week.  Hurricane season is in full effect right now.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will prevail through tonight. Powerful Hurricane Irma will impact Florida Saturday night and Sunday, moving northward through early next week. Refer to the latest advisory on Irma issued by the National Hurricane Center.”  It is 65* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 79* with more sun and clouds this afternoon.  Water temperature is around 81*.

Sunset is at 7:35 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:58 a.m.
