At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s a shocker of a morning this morning! There’s a north westerly blowing a hoooly down the coast driving sheets of penetrating rain ahead of it as the hedgerows rattle and shake to the rhythm of the storm.
It just makes you wonder how the Caribbean is holding up, this is a breeze compared to what they are going through!
And so the surf is a mixed up mess of chop and slop.
Four feet of broken and shapeless waves are being blown around the bay with no outside area, just a sea of broken waves.
It’s likely to be a good while before it improves any!
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
This north westerly blow is blasting straight into the bay here this morning too but it’s blowing so hard that the high tide waves are almost being blown smooth!
Well, that is a bit of an exaggeration but you know what I mean!?
The dropping tide will expose it all to the full brunt of that stormy wind but for the moment it is all very atmospheric and kind of strangely pleasant in that driving rain and screaming wind!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:53 (0.8m) High Tide: 19:46 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 9th September 2017
Another day of blasting north westerly winds and driving rain!
The size of the surf is of little importance because you’re unlikely to be able to paddle out to it at any place around here! But it is likely to be just big and stormy and blown to pieces by these storms!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A very weathery weekend is waiting for us this weekend with lots of onshore wind, plenty of weak but occasionally sizeable windswell and even just a little sunshine too!
Saturday looks like a write-off for surf with a fresh north westerly wind blowing out the four to five feet of weak and wishy washy swell.
Sunday’s swells will be smaller, more in the three to maybe four feet region, while that fresh wind will be blowing more westerly than northerly, still onshore everywhere but maybe not as onshore as Saturday’s winds.
And then next week will start out in the same vein with hard blowing and onshore winds, very mixed, autumnal weather along with some big windswells.
The south Coast will probably be beckoning this weekend and probably well into next week too!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
