At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is blowing fresh, the rain is falling hard and the air is all gloomy murk down in the bays on this Summer Solstice morning, a brisk north easterly wind slinging wetness far and wide.
In amongst that though there are some pleasant looking waves tumbling ashore with three feet and bigger of offshore wind smoothed left-handers reeling off the Reef, that peak spinning itself into Booby’s and a bit of a right coming off the Slab.
The weather will sort itself out after watering the gardens and blowing away the flotsam and jetsam of the weekend while the surf is likely to ease in size but keep its shape all day long.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
The wind is pushing onshore into Harlyn this morning, tumbling and tossing any small waves in its way as it scatters its soaking weight of rain across the bay.
There’s only a foot or two of green and lumpy, sloppy surf anyway and the greyness of a damp and miserable Monday morning are not helping to make it in any way attractive either.
It is a dull and damp and dreary one here today but, as always, there is still that easy calm and pleasant feel to it all.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:10 (1.7m) High Tide: 15:09 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 22nd June 2021
Small but clean waves should keep us occupied on a brighter and lighter, warmer and sunnier day today.
Only a foot or two at best of summer fun surf but a smooth and clean foot or two under bright skies and with light breezes.
Don’t forget the sunblock!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A little low front is likely to skip along the bottom end of the county as we hurtle headlong through the summer solstice this week, the grim and murky Monday morning weather not lasting too long before the return of much more ‘summery’ weather by Tuesday.
The jet stream pattern still has that annoying rollercoaster-like dip to it, allowing those brisk, more northerly winds to chill their way down the coast. At least that wind should stay just about offshore for the first half of the week, helping to smooth and shape the dropping swell. A dropping swell maybe but it should still be very surfable all the way through.
So Monday’s disgusting weather and great surf will soon be replaced by much brighter and clearer weather but with smaller surf, a foot or two of clean and sunny surf attracting the gliders and drifters on Tuesday.
And that’s the way it’s likely to stay all week long, a foot or two of graceful little surf with the breeze becoming lighter as we go along.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
