Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee. Occ. Thigh.
Traffic: None.
Parking: Lots.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, January 13 at 8:30 a.m.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-to-thigh high. It looks like it has the potential for a long-board glide as the tide comes in late morning.  

Winds are north-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is sheet-glass clean.  

Look for winds to rotate west today at 5 to 10 knots. We see small a semi-clean surf zone today.  

We have a low tide at 10:39 a.m. We have a high tide at 4:42 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 ft at 9 seconds in a medium period east/south-east swell. There is a little swell at the buoy, so perhaps hope for a glide on the log if you need to get wet in mid-January.

A low pressure develops well off-shore today, but it’s not likely to push up too much swell into as it quickly tracks north-east and winds stay strong off-shore Friday. Saturday sees small but increasing easterly wind swell rotate east then south overnight on Saturday. This south wind and swell increases Sunday ahead of a strong cold front and low pressure system moving through our beaches Sunday. There should be some stormy surf to ride on Sunday, with poor form. Winds go strong west overnight Sunday after a strong cold-front passage, and waves will be blown flat to start the upcoming work week.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will extend across the region through Friday as low pressure develops and moves well offshore of the Southeast U.S. Coast. An area of strengthening low pressure will track across the Southeast U.S. Saturday night and Sunday bringing widespread rainfall. After a strong cold front pushes offshore Sunday, high pressure will prevail through the middle of next week.”

It’s cool and cloudy this morning. It’s 47*. Look for a high of 56* today with mostly clouds. If you want the beach to yourself, this is the day for it.  

Water Temperature is hovering around 56* after this little cold snap.

Sunrise is at 7:22 a.m., and sunset will be at 5:34 p.m.
