At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The wind is slowly strengthening this morning, drifting from the north east right now, forecast to be more northerly by midmorning. So the heavy downpour that is powering down is falling almost vertically but starting to gain an angle, that thick rain having a feel about it that it is here for a while at least!
It is such shame for the Royal Cornwall Show visitors and organisers today but I’m sure that there are lots of things to do there undercover.
Back in the bay there are little waves peeling and peaking their way to the sand, a foot or occasionally two of longboard gliding heaven in the rain.
I’m guessing that the wind will kill it by lunchtime but right now it does look like fun!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Flat and choppy conditions are all that you will find at a rain lashed and murky Harlyn Bay this morning, that north easterly wind being straight onshore here.
The sky is grey, the sea is grey and the sand is a soaked and sodden golden grey.
But it is still somehow quite a pleasant place to be!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 8th June 2019
Westerly winds will be driving four feet or so of localised windswell our way all day long today.
Hopefully the worst of the weather will be blown along by that same wind, at least allowing for a brighter kind of day for most of the time.
And we’ll have a choice as to going to play in three to four feet of choppy junk surf at Constantine or to shuffle and skiffle in smaller but maybe just a little more organised Harlyn.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Westerly going south westerly winds are going to blow a mix of weather and surf conditions our way this weekend.
A blustery Saturday morning should see any showers blowing through quickly enough and giving way to one of those bright but breezy kind of days, a rolling four feet plus of raggedy surf pounding into the bays.
By Sunday the wind is likely to have quietened and eased its way back to the south west, at least allowing some clean shape at Harlyn as the size all but disappears.
So, bumpy and lumpy, windswept Harlyn should keep us busy through Saturday with smaller surf for Sunday providing a choice between sloppy but bigger west side breaks or much cleaner but small Harlyn!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
