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 showing waist to chest high clean peelers early looks fun at the moment.

Winds are from the north at 5 to 10 knots providing choppy semi-drifty conditions.

Look for winds to rotate easterly and pick up 10 knots later today resulting in choppy conditions.

Low tide is at 11:52 a.m., high tide will be at 6:13 p.m.

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

 Surf at Folly this morning is showing waist to chest high surf and fun early. This is a result from both local NE wind-swell and  Hurricane Paulette who has put herself SE of Bermuda. Watch this swell continue to slowly rise today intoTuesday where the swell should peak. Winds will be an issue Tuesday forecasted NE 15-20. Paullette 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. Tropical Storm Sally was also born yesterday off South Florida coast and shes heading into the gulf therefor will not be much production for us.  Teddy in the eastern Atlantic 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 several days. We will keep you posted.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: A cold front will approach the area today, then pass through tonight. High pressure will prevail into mid week, before low pressure impacts the region late week. Strong high pressure will build in for the weekend.”

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.
