Thursday, September 16

Semi-choppy.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Thigh-to-waist. Possibly bigger on incoming.
Traffic: Not too bad.
Parking: Cars at key surf spots.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Thursday, September 16 at 8:30 a.m.

Our friend Gary Wilson just brought a whole bunch of boards to the shop. Come check them out while we still have some in stock.

Surf at the Washout is thigh-to waist high and semi-choppy. There is a little swell out there, finally.

It is kind of closing out at the lower tide this morning, but I’d expect it to get a push as the tide comes in. There is some swell out there, but the tide is pretty low.

Winds are east at 5 to 8 knots.

Look for east winds increasing 10 to 12 knots late day. We see a bumpy, semi-choppy surf zone all day.

We have a low tide at 10:30 a.m., and a high tide at 5:13 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 2.6 ft. at 8 seconds in a medium period south/south-east swell. This lazy, medium period swell should continue this afternoon.   

Surf should be building a bit when the tide comes in late morning as an area of low pressure now called Disturbance Number 2 is developing east of our waters. It might not push up much, but it should make for rideable waves over through the afternoon. There is also what is now called Tropical Depression 1 coming off the coast of Africa and moving westward. It’s a long way out. But look for possible development of this system. It could be a wave maker during the middle to latter part of next week.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Weak high pressure will prevail inland while low pressure passes well offshore through late week. High pressure is expected to expand into the region this weekend into early next week.”

It’s 80* this morning and partly cloudy. Look for a high of 82* with clouds and a 30% chance for a shower this afternoon.  

Water temperature is around 82*.

Sunrise is at 7:04 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:24 p.m.

Thanks for checking in with Ocean Surf Shop.
