Traffic: None.
Parking: Lots.
Dangers: None.

Good Morning. This is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 8:15 a.m.
Surf at the Washout this morning is knee to thigh high. There is an occasional waist high set.
Surf is breaking up in the rocks this morning at the higher tide, but should get better form mid-morning as the tide drops some.
Surf is very clean.
Winds are light from the west, and are expected to blow south at less than 10 knots today.
We have a high tide at 8:36 a.m., and a low tide at 2:37 p.m. The next high tide is at 8:51 p.m.
Edisto Buoy is reading 3.6 ft. at 9 seconds in long period east ground swell, with the majority of the swell headed past our beaches to Fla.
Surf looks smaller today, and is best for the longboard or the fish. We should see inconsistent long period swell Thursday in the thigh to waist high range. Next up in the batting order is Category 5 Hurricane Maria, which will move north of Puerto Rico late week. She will be smack dab in our swell window starting Saturday. We look for another big ground-swell building Friday and into your weekend, fading Tuesday of next week. Another big swell in the forecast for a historic hurricane surf season. Keep an eye on Maria, in case she decides to take a swipe at Charleston.
Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “High pressure will extend south across the region into early next week as Hurricane Maria moves northwest to near the Bahamas this weekend and then likely north just off the Southeast U.S. coast.”
We have perfect weather today. It is 77* and sunny. Expect a hot day with a high of 90* and sun. There is a 20% chance of a thunderstorm.
Water temperature is around 77*.
Sunset is at 7:20 p.m. and sunrise will be at 7:05 a.m.
