At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet
It is all a little sullen this morning with a moody grey sky sulking over the bays, the breeze light and onshore, lazily slopping the tiny surf.
We are probably going to see a soaking or two this morning but we should see something brighter too, probably by this afternoon, just when the surf slowly starts to build.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Harlyn is quiet beneath layers of heavy cloud this morning, the surf as flat as, the breeze drifting onshore.
It’s a moody and broody place to loiter this morning but that will change as the surf starts to pound its way in soon enough!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:25 (2.5m) High Tide: 10:51 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 24th October 2020
We are in for a bit of a storm today with strengthening winds and building swells.
The next forty eight hours are going to see strong winds pushing mountainous seas our way but this could be as nothing compared to what is aiming our way at the start of the week!
In the meantime it’s Harlyn or not in!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A deep area of low pressure is set to sweep up the North Atlantic this weekend with Storm Epsilon closely following behind!
And that could just swing a whole lot of big, big – really big waves our way!
So Saturday should start out reasonably enough as Harlyn showcases a fun three to four feet of offshore blown and hollowed, crunchy surf. But as the wind strengthens, still from the south west, the swell is likely to double in size and then double again. And then by Sunday it is likely to be bigger again.
So as south westerly gales blow hard onto the coast and mountainous seas tumble and crash ashore, it might just be worth taking a moment to wonder whether you might want to be unleashing the kids into that maelstrom as the school half-term holiday unfolds.
Lifeguards are on all of our more popular beaches but there’s only so much they can do, especially if conditions prove to be as exciting as promised!
On the other hand if your fitness levels are twitching and you’ve already experienced a little taste of the wild and roar power of an out of control Atlantic swell, then your time has come!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
