Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, Nov. 6th at 8:30 a.m.  

Surf at the Pier this morning is averaging knee high at low tide, and looks like the little swell we had yesterday has faded.

Winds are north/north-east at 10 to 15 and conditions are side-shore and fairly clean with a moderate current down the beach.  

Look for winds to rotate more north-easterly this afternoon at 10 to 15 knots with a gust to 20.

After a low tide at 9 a.m., we have a high tide at 3:24 p.m. The next low tide at 9:31 pm.

The Edisto Buoy is reading 1.6 ft. at 7 seconds in a medium period south-east swell with a fresh, increasing short-period north-east wind swell, 3 ft. at 3 seconds.

We see increasing, high-angled north-east wind swell building some this afternoon with drifty, semi-choppy conditions as winds rotate north-east. This north-east wind swell should build some for Thursday. A strong cold front brings northerly winds rotating more north-east Friday and into the weekend, when we see strong, high angled north-east swell and north-east winds for the period. Looks like some waves around this weekend, just not the best swell angle for Folly Beach, as is usually the case with a strong north/north-east wind.

It’s 66* and cloudy this morning. Look for a nice day with sun behind clouds and a high of 72*.

Water temperature is slowly dropping, now 71*.

Sunrise is at 6:41 a.m. and sunset will be at 5:24 p.m.
