Tuesday, Jan. 11

Choppy and drifty. North-to-south.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee.
Traffic: None.
Parking: Lots.
Dangers: the Georgia Bulldogs.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, January 11 at 8:30 a.m.

Sorry for the late report, but Georgia won the National Championship, and when you’ve got a Bulldog fan in your house, you stay up too late.

Surf at The Washout this morning is knee-high. Maybe a little bit bigger. It is choppy and weak in a high-angled north-east wind swell. Not missing much today.  

Winds are north/north-east at 15 to 20 knots with a higher gust, and surf zone is choppy and drifty; north-to-south.    

Look for winds to continue north-east at 10 to 15 knots, and we see choppy, short period wind swell in the knee high range today.

We have a low tide at 9 a.m. We have a high tide at 3 p.m., and a low tide at 9:01 p.m.  

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.6 ft at 5 seconds in a fresh north-east wind swell, all of which is passing south of our beaches.

North flow keeps surf small for the next two days. A low pressure develops offshore late Wednesday, but it’s not likely to push up much swell into Thursday as it quickly tracks north-east. Off-shore flow keeps surf small and temperatures cold into the weekend. If you want some surf, head south to Florida over the next few days.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will prevail into Wednesday, before low pressure develops offshore and tracks northeast late Wednesday into Thursday. After a brief period of high pressure late week into early this weekend, low pressure will track across the Southeast and will pull a cold front through the region late Saturday into Sunday. High pressure should then prevail early next week.”

It’s sunny and cold this morning. It’s 43*. Look for a high of 49* today. 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 5:33 p.m.
