Wednesday, May 11

Side-shore. Very drifty. Weak and semi-clean.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Knee-to-thigh.
Traffic: Some.
Parking: Some.
Dangers: None.

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

Waves at The Washout this morning are knee-to-thigh high. It’s drifty a high-angled north/north-east wind swell. Certainly bring a high-volume board.

Winds are north at 15 to 20.  Surf zone is semi-clean.

Look for winds to continue north at 15 to 20 knots this morning. Fading to around 15 knots late day. We see a drifty, side-shore surf zone today.

Low tide is at 10:30 a.m., and high tide will be at 4:56 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 2.6 feet at 12 seconds in a long period east/south-east swell, with an east/north-east wind swell 7 feet at 7 seconds.  

We see strong northerly flow during the middle of the work week. This will send in high angled north-east wind-swell, and most swell will pass our beaches, but there might be a drifty longboard wave out there through Thursday. We see changes late week when low pressure is predicted to form to move into our marine area with blocking high pressure to the north. We could potentially see fun surf Friday into the weekend as the swell rotates more on-shore. Something to keep an eye on for sure. We’ll keep you updated.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast for our area currently calls for: “Dry high pressure will persist through tonight. Low pressure over the Atlantic will drift west through the area on Friday, then Atlantic high pressure will gradually rebuild.”

It’s 63* with sun this morning. Look for a high of 76* with sunshine today. There is a small craft advisory in effect.

Water Temperature is has dropped to 72*.

Sunrise is at 6:24 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:08 p.m.
