At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
Well this Bank Holiday Monday seems to be living down to expectations, the wind is screeching in from the west nor’ west, the sky is as dark as Mordor, air temperatures are low and that threat of a heavy downpour or two is ever present.
And of course the surf is a chopped out mess of three foot junk surf.
If you’re all snuggled up and cosy then you might want to pull the duvet up, roll over and enjoy some more cosy time, you’re missing nothing out here this morning!
But the wind should ease and calm while the sky will reluctantly clear, leaving a semblance of a late summer’s afternoon to enjoy later.
The surf is still going to be junk though!
Let’s hope that conditions improve for this afternoon’s Great Atlantic Raft Race at Harlyn. The sun should be out by the hoped for 2pm start and, as always, a whole bundle of fun should keep you entertained!
And then of course it’s the Lifeguards’ 3 Bays Challenge aiming for a 7pm start over at Constantine, Booby’s and Treyarnon. It’s a challenge for the entrants but huge entertainment for the rest of us! So let’s all go down to the bays and cheer them on!
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of onshore junked, choppy and bumpy surf is rattling and rolling its way to the beach just ahead of high tide.
It is all grey and cold looking, a wild and woolly scene hinting at the Autumn to come and yet, as always, quite a nice place to be somehow. And I’m sure that you have already heard me say it before but Harlyn can be a whole heap of fun when it’s onshore!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:12 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:07 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 28th August 2018
A lighter and brighter, calmer day should cheer us up today with only very light breezes forecast and a welcome return of some brighter weather.
Hopefully the waves should be still in the three foot size range, a little bouncy and sloppy but clean enough and bright enough to tempt you in for a splash or two.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We have almost seen the back of those annoying north westerly winds, almost but not quite. The week is likely to start with those same north westerly winds blowing in and making a mess of an already weak little three foot swell. But by Tuesday we should be enjoying some calm offshore breezes, small surf and very pleasant weather. But just as we relax, that north westerly returns to chill the air and chop the surf, a gentle reminder that Autumn is suddenly not so far away.
And then it all comes good for week’s end.
Fine weather, light breezes, bright sunshine and small but hopefully big enough, prettily shaped surf should cheer us all up for those last few days of the school holidays.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
