Thurs., Sept. 7

Side-shore, clean. Soft, early.

Time of Report: 8:15 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Stomach, chest sets. Occ. head. Building.
Traffic: Busy.
Parking: Cars at surf spots.
Dangers: Hurricane Irma.

Good Morning. This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, Sept. 7 at 8:30 a.m.
Waves at The Washout are waist to stomach high with chest high sets in south-east ground swell. Occasionally, there is an inconsistent head high set.
Winds are north at 10 to 15 knots, and surf is side-shore, but fairly clean. It is soft at the morning’s low tide, but will be hollow later by noon as the tide drops out.
We have a high tide at 9:04 a.m., and a low tide will be at 3:14 p.m. The next high tide will be at 9:33 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 13 seconds in long period east/south-east ground swell. Ground swell is building.
All eyes are on Hurricane Irma later this week as it is likely to affect our area. Folly Beach will most likely be under mandatory evacuation sometime this weekend. Ground swell from hurricane Irma will build Friday and Saturday with relatively moderate north/north-east winds. The wind will likely become much stronger into Sunday 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 tropical low behind Irma, and this should send more swell our way 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 late week. Powerful Hurricane Irma will be near Florida and the Bahamas this weekend, moving northward. Refer to the latest advisory on Irma issued by the National Hurricane Center.”
It is 69* and cloudy this morning. Look for a high of 81* with more sun this afternoon.
Water temperature is around 81*.
Sunset is at 7:35 p.m. and sunrise will be at 6:58 a.m.
