Wednesday, May 24

Sied-shore, semi-clean and drifty. Should be getting choppy later.

Time of Report: 8:30 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Thigh-to-waist. Slightly bigger.
Traffic: There is some. Not too bad.
Parking: Some to be had.
Dangers: Rip currents are going to be pretty bad for the tourists this weekend.

Good morning this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, May 24 at 8:30 a.m.

We just received a whole shipment of Orion boards. Performance short-boards, grovlers, mid-lengths and some sweet longboards. Come check them out.

Surf at The Washout this morning is drifty down the beach, but there is a wave to ride, especially for the high-volume boards. It’s around thigh-to-waist high. Might get a bit bigger as the tide moves in.  

Winds are north – side/off-shore – at 15 knots, and waves semi-clean and super drifty.  

Look for north-east winds this afternoon at 15 knots. This wind pattern will be increasing through Saturday as a frontal boundary sits to our south, and high pressure just to the north of our marine aera. This drifty swell should continue for your work week.

We will have a high tide at around noon, and low tide is at 5:47 p.m.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 4.6 feet at 5 seconds in short-period ENE swell. Most of the swell is headed south, but there is something to ride if you don’t mind drifting some.

A high pressure will sit just north and a frontal boundary to our south. This brings strong north-east winds which will likely give us some drifty NE wind-swell through Thursday. Late week models are showing a more significant low-pressure system to develop over central Florida and eventually push off their coastline and could generate another ESE swell mixed with strong north/north-east winds. This will increase north-east winds and the swell will likely get pretty big and drifty from the north-east. There is plenty of uncertainty, but there will be waves of some sort all week. Look for a windy clean up on Saturday as waves start to drop off Sunday.

Your NOAA Marine Weather Forecast calls for: “High pressure will build from the north through Thursday. A coastal low pressure system will affect the area Thursday night through Saturday. Weak high pressure will then build in.”

Its 64* and mostly sunny this morning.  Look for sun with passing clouds today with a high of 74* and wind.

Water temperature is 75*.

Sunrise is at 6:16 a.m., and sunset will be at 8:17 p.m.
