Choppy and drifty NE

Time of Report: 8:00 a.m
Wave Forecast: waist to belly high
Traffic: Not bad at all
Parking: plenty
Dangers: None

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 8:00 a.m.    

You can now park in right-of-ways on the side streets at Folly Monday through Thursday. Keep in mind parking restrictions still apply Friday through Sunday. Check the City of Folly Beach’s Web site for more information.

We still have a mandatory mask ordinance in effect for Folly Beach.

Surf is waist to belly high and drifty/choppy conditions.

Winds are from the north north-east at 15 knots making for lots of drift.

Look for winds to rotate easterly and pick up 15-20 knots later today resulting in choppy drifty conditions.

We just came off a high at 6:40 a.m Low tide is at 12:45 p.m. Another high tide to finish the day at 7:06 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is down. Surfline data showing 5.2 ft at 12 seconds in ESE swell.

 Surf at Folly currently showing waist to belly high drifty/choppy conditions. Winds will be picking up NE 20 kts deteriorating the surf. Looking ahead surf continues to drop the rest of the week but remains rideable. Sally makes Landfall today in LA and will eventually push off NC coast as a remnant low. This will push strong NE swell mostly passing our shores. By Saturday we should see swell begin to fill in from Tropical Storm Teddy who is still in churning in the eastern Atlantic heading in our general direction. Teddy looks to further develop during his trek across the Atlantic. Hes still a ways out and the timing of Sally coming off the coast will have a strong impact on where and when Teddy puts himself in the long term. We have more waves coming!!

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: High pressure will reside north of the area today while tropical cyclone Sally spins near the Gulf coast states. The remnant low of Sally will then track across the region through late week. Strong high pressure will build in over the weekend and prevail into early next week.”

It’s 78* with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 82*  cloudy skies and noticeably cooler outside. Starting to feel like fall.

Water temperature is 84*.  

Sunrise is at 7:01 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:29 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
