Wednesday, Feb. 12

Clean with some bump. Soft. Best for a long-board.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Thigh-to-waist. Stomach set.
Traffic: Not too bad.
Parking: Plenty.
Dangers: None.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, February 12 at 8:30 a.m.   

Surf at Folly this morning running thigh-to-waist high with an occasional stomach set. It is too foggy to get proper pictures (sorry!), but our surf reporter Luke Levanchy paddled out and said it’s soft, and OK for the long-board.  

Winds are light from the south/south-west and surf is bumpy, but fairly clean.

Look for winds to increase from the south-east today at 10 knots. This should add some chop to the swell, but not too bad. We should have decent surf today.

We have a high tide at 10 a.m., and a low tide will be at 4:18 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 3 ft. at 10  seconds in a long period east/south-east swell.

A front stalls over our general marine area today, before moving north this afternoon, so today might be a good day to get wet before south-west winds pick up ahead of another cold front on Thursday.  After another cold front passage on Thursday, winds and wind-swell go north-east, offering smaller, colder surf with drifty choppy conditions for Friday. This trend continues into the weekend. We see another storm system approach early-to-middle part of next week, so surf could pick up again from the south ahead of the system.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our marine area calls for: “A stalling cold front over the Carolinas will shift back north as a warm front by this evening. A stronger cold front will then move through late Thursday followed by cooler high pressure into Sunday. Another storm system could then affect the area early to mid next week.

It’s 60* and very foggy at the beach. Look for a clouds later and a high of 70 with a slight chance of a shower today.

Water temperature is 57*.

Sunrise is at 7:05 a.m. and sunset will be at 6:01 p.m.
