choppy and drifty. May clean up late

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: stomach
Traffic: None
Parking: plenty
Dangers: None

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, Sept. 16 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 remain the same today but lightening up a bit towards the end of the day for a possible cleanup sesh before dark.

We just came off a high at 7:33 a.m Low tide is at 1:37 p.m. Another high tide to finish the day at 7:56 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is down. Surfline data showing 7.2 ft at 11 seconds in ENE swell.

 Surf at Folly currently showing waist to belly high drifty/choppy conditions. Winds are forecasted to lighten up late so a possible cleanup sesh before dark tonight. Looking ahead surf continues to drop the rest of the week but remains rideable. Hurricane Sally made Landfall today in LA and will eventually push off the Carolinas 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 Central 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 weaken from the north today as Tropical Cyclone Sally slowly moves inland along the Gulf coast. Sally will continue to weaken as it tracks across the region and offshore through Friday. Strong high pressure will then build back in and prevail into early next week.”

It’s 76* with clouds and showers this morning. Look for a high of 80* with rain in the forecast and noticeably cooler temps.

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.
