At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet.
Another storm is blasting into the bay this morning, the screeching west wind and driving rain just reminding us that winter is knocking on the door – it’s only 5 deg C out there as well!
The surf is bigger than it has been for a while but that’s irrelevant, there’s just a blown out mess of junk surf bulldozing its way to the beach with no shape, no style, no attraction.
It might be worth giving it a miss today!
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 4 feet.
Three to four feet of wind driven storm surf is crashing up the beach at Harlyn this morning, the raging gale of a winter’s storm battering and scattering those broken and weary waves.
No, it’s not worth it here today.
It might be a day for the south coast somewhere?
One of those tucked away little coves that occasionally work on a westerly?

Surf Forecast for Saturday 19th November 2016
The leftover remnants of those storm swells are as much as we can hope for today, three to four feet of still onshore slopped windswell is probably going to be our lot!
There is just the chance of some cleaner conditions just before dark (or maybe just after?), but even so the swell is looking weak and the wind is mainly going to be onshore.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend.
These winds are likely to continue to blow hard into the weekend, easing in strength and maybe even switching direction for a moment through late Saturday afternoon but for most of the time just gusting hard into the bays and making a choppy mess of those rolling, windswept swells.
So, Saturday is likely to see a reduction in waves size after Friday’s bigger but still stormy surf and the wind should ease a little in strength too. But it is still going to be blowing a bit, still onshore and still pretty chilly too!
There is just a chance of the wind twitching offshore, just for a moment, on Saturday evening but that will be a full race before darkness!
And then Sunday will produce more onshore winds, blowing chilly, chilly air down from the north west, still onshore and still making a mess of the smaller surf.
Monday could see some offshore wind to smooth out those waves but the chances are that the surf could quickly drop in size as soon as it loses the support of those onshore winds!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
