Traffic: Not too bad.
Parking: None in key surf spots.
Dangers: Crowds.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, September 8 at 8:15 a.m.

Surf at the Washout is waist-to-chest high with a rare shoulder set.  It’s a bit soft at the higher tide, but there are some nice lines. It is very crowded and inconsistent.

Winds are north-north-west at 5 to 10 knots, surf is clean.

Look for winds rotating moderate north-west to west as Tropical Storm Mindy pulls to our south and off-shore of our marine area. Surf zone should remain clean, overall.  

High tide is at 10:11 a.m., and low tide will be at 4:21 p.m. The next high tide is at 10:24 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 14 seconds in a building, long-period east/south-east ground swell with a short-period south-west wind swell 2.6 ft at 4.5 seconds.  

We have long-period ground swell from Hurricane Larry at Folly today, with another tropical system, Tropical Storm Mindy, rolling off-shore and south of our beaches today. Surf should stay relatively clean today with storms and rain in the area. Swell should pick up some this afternoon. Friday holds similar waves with winds going more north-east in the afternoon, adding some surface chop to surf averaging chest high with bigger sets possible. Surf should fade but hold some on Saturday morning, before fading out late day Saturday and into Sunday.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “Mindy is forecasted to pass just to our south today, followed by a cold front crossing through our region this evening. High pressure returns for the weekend and persists for most of next week. Refer to the latest advisory on Tropical Storm Mindy issued by the National Hurricane Center.”

It’s76* this morning with rain and showers. Look for a high of 79* with rain and clouds this afternoon.

Water temperature is around 85*.

Sunrise is at 6:59 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:33 p.m.
