Constantine (0*): 6 feet.
We might not have ‘enjoyed’ any of the white stuff but it is blowing a hooly out there this morning and it’s feeling pretty chilly too while the torrential downfalls of last night seem to have given way to something brighter and just a little cheerier.
Strong north westerly gales are decimating the six feet or so of trashed and chopped, out of control surf as it blasts ashore this wintery morning.
It’s really not the place to be thinking of going too close to this morning, that sea is grumpy and angry today!
Harlyn (0*): 4 feet.
Four to five feet of gale battered storm surf is being buffeted ashore here this morning, the wind pounding against the headland and bending the hedgerows, while a golden sunburst of a magnificent dawn heaves itself over the far horizon.
There’s a lot of weather going on here this morning but with no surf to ride!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:20 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:11 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 14th January 2017
Those strong north westerlies are likely to continue to screech our way well into Saturday afternoon, bringing heavy squalls in amongst some brighter and lighter skies.
So the surf is likely to continue to be a blown out mess of chop at all of our surf breaks throughout today, dropping in size too.
But luckily we have bit of a winter clearance SALE going on in the shop if you’re over this way!?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
These howling, onshore winds that we have enjoyed all week look as though they are going to ease as we go into this weekend. Although still blowing in from the north west through Saturday morning we should be enjoying a bit of an all round brighter day. And the wind should gradually calm as the day rolls on allowing a much calmer and brighter, drier Sunday to cheer us up.
The surf is likely to have dropped as we go into the weekend too. Three to four feet or so through Saturday, dropping to only one to two feet through Sunday. But it should be cleaner on Sunday, not squeaky clean and sharp but better than it has been.
And then next week is starting to look a little sharper with offshore and cleaner, brighter conditions, certainly for the back half of the week anyway.
In the meantime though, we still have those squealing onshores to deal with.
We have a bit of a winter clearance SALE going on this weekend, so there are a few mighty wetsuit bargains to be had if you around this way this weekend!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
