If you're a Charleston surfer you've probably gone all giddy in the last 36 hours as Hurricane Bill starts pushing over bigger waves.
Currently the morning-to-noon period on Saturday is looking the best, but you can get a pretty good overview of what's coming on this page at Surfline.
And you needn't take a total shot in the dark as to if the surf is good, there are a number of local Web cams:
- Folly Beach: Folly Wind & Sea Cam, FollyWeather.com, and the high-frame-rate Surfline cam.
- Isle of Palms: SurfCam & Surf Report and The WIndjammer.
Just watch out for jellyfish being pushed in with the waves, and be safe as rip currents will be worse with the heightened wave activity.
Oh, and for the record, Bill is pretty well out of the scope of Charleston's direct concern. Though we could get some mild erosion at the beaches.
