Clean early, bump later.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: waist to belly
Traffic: Kinda busy.
Parking: Some to be found.
Dangers: None

Good morning, this is Luke with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Saturday, Sept. 12 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 starting to show this morning running waist to belly high and should improve some on this Saturday mornings incoming tide push.  

Winds are from the north, north-east at 5 to 10 knots providing clean conditions early.

Look for winds to turn east this afternoon at 10 knots, adding some slight chop to the surface but overall shouldn’t hurt it to bad.  

Low tide is at 9:52 a.m., high tide will be at 4:19 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 4.6 ft at 8 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell.

 Surf at Folly this morning is showing waist to belly high sets and should improve some later this morning with the tide push. This is a result from Tropical Storm Paulette who has put herself SE of Bermuda. Watch this swell continue to slowly rise until Monday/Tuesday where the swell should peak.  She lifts north out of our window late Tuesday therefore look for a fading trend to begin as swell rotates out of a more NE direction Weds. Another low out in the eastern Atlantic yet to be named looks very promising as well for the long range. Either way the Atlantic is wide awake and we should be surfing quite a lot the next 8-10 days. We will keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will reside to the north, while tropical low pressure tracks across the northeastern Gulf of Mexico this weekend. A backdoor cold front will drop through the area Monday night, followed by high pressure through midweek. Another cold

front could impact the area towards the end of next week.”

It’s 80* with sun mixed with clouds this morning. Look for a high of 85* with sun and clouds, and a 50% chance of rain this afternoon.   

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.
