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

New parking restrictions in place on Folly Beach. Please see the City’s Web site for more information.  

Mandatory Mask Ordinance enacted by Folly Beach City Council in late June.

Surf at Folly this morning running knee-to-thigh high in a south-west wind swell. It’s a drained out at the lower tide this morning. It’ll likely get a little push as the tide comes in late-morning.  

Winds are west/south-west at 5 knots and surf is semi-clean, early.

Winds will increase out of the south-west this afternoon at 15 knots, making for choppier conditions as the day wears on.

Low tide is at 10:45 a.m., and high tide will be at 5:30 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5 feet at 6 seconds in a short period south/south-west wind swell.  

We are looking at increasing, choppy, short-period south-west wind swell (on-and-off) through the rest of the work week as high pressure dominates to our west over Bermuda, and low pressure lingers inland. Swell should build some late week. This weekend all eyes should be on Tropical Storm Isaias, which is nearing the Caribbean Islands. Current track has it skimming the southern Caribbean and heading into South Florida over the weekend. Models show our first pulse of swell hitting our shores early Saturday into Sunday. Swell should continue into the early part of the work week.  

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “Atlantic high pressure will prevail into Saturday while a trough of low pressure lingers inland. Tropical Storm Isaias could affect the area late Sunday into Monday. Refer to the latest advisory on Isaias issued by the National Hurricane Center.”

It’s 80* and cloudy at the beach this morning. Look for a high of 86* at the beach with showers and a thunderstorm today.  

Water temperature is up to 87*.  

Sunrise is at 6:31 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:18 p.m.
