A blustery west wind is fluttering into the bay this morning, a blanket of grey threatening to provide at least a little dampness sooner or later. If this was a normal Bank Holiday then we’d all be a little disappointed but as it is, the rescue services and crowd controllers are probably breathing a little sigh of relief – that over hyped mass exodus to the coast is unlikely to happen today.
It should all brighten up a lot by lunchtime though and that could add a little pressure.
The surf is a mess too, a windswept four feet plus of chopped and shaken, onshore crumbled slop is tumbling our way. The sheltered spots should be more inviting, if you really want to catch a cold or two!
Today’s Tide Times:

Forecast for Bank Holiday Monday 25th May 2020
Light breezes will be drifting onshore as the sea breeze effect kicks in through midday on a beautifully bright and warm, sunshiny bank holiday Monday.
It is promising to be a good ‘un if you’re able to get outside and enjoy it!
Conditions for the Bank Holiday Weekend
A blustery weekend is going to replace those settled and sunny conditions of midweek.
A fresh sou’ wester should blow some bigger and lumpier swell our way through Friday, the wind backing westerly for Saturday adding a lump and bump to the waves even at those popular sheltered surf breaks along our coast.
The surf is likely to bump up really very quickly through Friday, maybe catching a few isolation refugees by surprise as they head for some coastal relief to their lockdown loneliness. The beaches are unguarded and the swell is likely to get big and dangerous to the unfamiliar, so this might not be the weekend to aim for a socially distanced dip or two.
By Sunday the swell will have eased to a stuttering four to six feet or so, still thick and lumpy enough to cause problems for the unfit or unfamiliar but a little more fun at those sheltered spots.
So, a mixed weekend of weather change and roaring surf is expected, settling down by Monday when we can expect some light breezes and warm sunny weather.
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
