Chatter with cross shore south-west winds.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Waist-to-chest.
Traffic: Cars at key surf spots.
Parking: Some to be found.
Dangers: Work.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, January 14 at 8:30 a.m.  

Now is a good time to order a custom Stewart, as we’ll be placing an order this week for spring. Call us at 843-588-9175.

Surf at Folly this morning is waist-to-chest high and looks fun. There is still plenty of south-east swell in the water. There are still fog-banks rolling through the beach.

Winds are light from the south-west at 10 knots, surf has some cross-shore chatter in it.       

Look for winds to from the south-west this afternoon at 5 to 10 knots and we see semi-choppy surf today with some bump in it from the cross-shore winds.

We have a high tide this morning at 10:22 a.m., and a low tide at 4:41 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 5.2 ft at 10 seconds in south-east swell.

Plenty of south-east swell at the buoy today, and plenty of swell in the water here at Folly Beach today, with surf averaging waist to chest high pretty much all day. Look for some bump with a cross shore south-west wind this afternoon. This south trade-wind swell continues into mid-week, dropping off some on Wednesday, but still OK for the high-volume boards. High pressure set up well off the mid-Atlantic states (a Bermuda style high pressure) sends in south swell through Thursday, when we see another cold front pass, sending wind and swell from a more north-easterly direction. Swell rotates again on Friday, coming south on Saturday, so there is some surf forecast for Saturday, but there will be some wind on it. 
 
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A weak front will linger inland of the forecast area through the middle of the week. A cold front will cross the area on Thursday, followed by high pressure late week. Another cold front is expected to arrive over the weekend.”

It’s 64* this morning with sun trying to break through the fog. Look for a high of 76* today and clouds with some sun.  

Water temperature is up to 60* with the warm flow over the weekend.

Sunrise is at 7:22 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:34 p.m.
