Thursday, Nov. 19

Side-shore, drifty. Soft and semi-clean.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee. Occ. thigh.
Traffic: Not too bad.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, Nov.19 at 7:30 a.m.

We just received a shipment of Billabong kid’s full-suits. Come get ‘em while the getting is good.

Surf at Folly is knee-to-thigh high in drifty north-easts wind-swell.

Winds are moderate/strong NNE at 10 to 15 knots, making conditions semi-clean, soft and drifty.

Look for winds to rotate more on shore, north-east, at 10 to 15. We see choppy, drifty surf all day.  

We have a high tide at 11:03 a.m., and a low tide at 5:15 p.m.

Edisto Buoy is down. Virtual buoy data is showing 4.1 ft. at 5 seconds in a short period north-east wind-swell.

Surf has picked up slightly but still not worth the cold this morning. Things continue slow for us surf-wise here on Folly much of our work week as high pressure dominates our marine area with strong side-shore winds blowing swell past our beaches. Later in the work week a strong high pressure moves off the Mid-Atlantic coast, and looks to produce a decent trade-wind swell Saturday through Monday, as winds come more on-shore, and surf size increases. Early next week, we see another cold front passage, and more high-angled north-east wind swell passing our beaches, but there should be some surf this weekend.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will prevail across the area through the weekend, as weak coastal trough remains nearby. A series of cold fronts should shift through the area during the early and middle of next week.”

It’s 47* and sunny this morning. Look for a high of 62* and sun.

Water temperature is around 69*.  

Sunrise is at 6:54 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:15 p.m.
