Wednesday, Sept. 8

Crossed, semi-clean. Bumpy.

Time of Report: 8:15 a.m.
Wave Forecast: Thigh-to-waist. Bigger sets are inconsistent.
Traffic: Surfers for sure.
Parking: Packed at key surf spots and walkovers.
Dangers: It's pretty crowded, if that's a danger for 'ya.

Good morning, this is Bates with your Ocean Surf Shop surf report and forecast for Wednesday, September 8 at 8:15 a.m.

Surf at the Washout is thigh-to-waist high with a chest set in an inconsistent, building south-easterly ground swell.  

Winds are west/south-west at 5 to 10 knots, and surf is a bit crossed-up and side-shore with some clean sections.

Look for south winds at 10 knots this afternoon and a bumpy, semi-choppy surf zone as the tide goes out late morning.

High tide is at 9:25 a.m., and low tide will be at 3:31 p.m. The next high tide is at 9:39 p.m.

The Edisto buoy is reading 3 ft. at 15 seconds in a building, long-period east/south-east ground swell.  

Hurricane Larry is looking like it will give us waves beginning small today, building and running through Saturday. Thursday looks to be a good day if winds cooperate and stay more westerly, but with a frontal boundary moving in from the west, and a tropical low following it out of the Gulf of Mexico, localized winds will be shifty, but should tend moderate from the south-west. The swell begins to fall off Saturday afternoon. Either way, we have long-period ground swell in the forecast, and don’t be surprised if it’s closing out. But if you’re a beach-break barrel rider, then you’ll be in your element.

Your National Weather Service Marine Weather Forecast for our area calls for: “A stationary front over the region will dissipate today. A cold front is forecasted to slowly move through Thursday, while a low originating in the Gulf moves along the front. High pressure returns for the weekend and early next week.”

It’s79* this morning and partly cloudy. Look for a typical humid summer day with a high of 83* and mostly clouds with rain showers on and off.

Water temperature is around 85*.

Sunrise is at 6:58 a.m. and sunset will be at 7:36 p.m.
