At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
Big bundles of thick, dark cloud left over from that low pressure system of the last few days are being tumbled across the orange lit sky by a frisky and chilly northerly wind this morning, the dark sea shimmering and sparking beneath the lightshow.
Throw in a couple of phat rainbows blossoming out of the three feet or so of trying surf and you have one atmospheric bay to start your holiday Saturday from!
The surf isn’t all that though. Not yet anyway but give it a few hours and we might be enjoying an entirely different feeling day.
And the wind might just nudge a little more offshore as we go along, those clouds eventually being bowled clear and that sunshine warming us up, away from the wind anyway.
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
A cold northerly wind is pushing into Harlyn this morning, tossing and turning the foot or so of already mixed up little surf.
The sky is alive with action here too as huge bundles of cloud bumble across the horizon, skipping and tumbling past rainbows and brighter patches. The showers are short, sharp and stinging when they blast down but hopefully they are well on their way to other parts as brighter skies take control, eventually!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 30th August 2020
Offshore breezes and tiny swells will make for a pleasant holiday Sunday of scooting across waist high waves under some pleasant enough sunshine.
Surf Conditions for the Bank holiday Weekend
We might just get away with an enjoyably pleasant bank holiday weekend this weekend with some okay weather mixed with almost offshore breezes to manicure the small but very rideable little surf.
The breeze is going to be from the north, hopefully north easterly for most of the time, maybe a little chillier than we’d like but also helping to smarten and smooth a fun little two to three foot swell.
Saturday might be more side shore than offshore but the surf should still be clean enough and bright enough to be pleasantly enjoyable, while Sunday is likely to be a little smaller but maybe a lot cleaner.
Monday is likely to be really small but with a more southerly south easterly breeze to warm things up and smooth out that tiny surf.
So, all in all we can expect a pleasant enough weekend for the grand finale to a slightly surreal season.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
