Tuesday, September 20

Clean early. Ground swell. Surface chop on ground swell this afternoon.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Stomach-to-chest.
Traffic: Some local traffic, but not too hard to get on the island.
Parking: Lots of cars at key surf spots.
Dangers: No internet connection.

Good morning this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Tuesday, September 20 at 8:30 a.m.   

Checking the pier this morning because of the lower tide. Seems like Washout is shutting down, but should get better when there is more water under it.

Waves at the pier are stomach-to-chest high with good form. Fiona swell is looking pretty good today.

Winds are north/north-west at 5 knots, and surf zone is clean.  

Winds rotate north at 5 knots this morning, going east at 10 to 12 this afternoon. Surf should chop up some this afternoon, but not too bad.

Low tide is at 10:08 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:12 p.m. Next high tide is after dark around 10 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 feet at 10 seconds in a long-period south-east ground swell compliments of  Hurricane Fiona.

Ground swell is starting to build from Hurricane Fiona, which will be our main swell-maker this week.  Look for more moderate winds and continued swell on today. This swell builds mid-week, with winds forecast to be westerly for Thursday. Could be a good run of waves through mid-week. Winds come strong north-east on Friday, so get it mid-week if you can. Might be some leftovers for Saturday morning, but swell should fade this weekend as Fiona heads well north of our swell area.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “High pressure will expand over our area from the northwest through midweek. A dry cold front is forecasted to move through the region Thursday night, followed by cooler and dry weather through next weekend.”

Water Temperature is around 82*.

It’s 73* with bright sun this morning. Look for a high of 84* and sun today.    

Sunrise is at 7:06 a.m., and sunset will be at 7:20 p.m.
