There’s a thick pea-souper out there this morning, the sort of stuff that used to add atmosphere to those London films of half a century ago.
Visibility is down to not very much, certainly not enough to see the sea but otherwise it’s mild and still and cosy feeling.
The surf is a foot or maybe two of sheet glass, hidden away amongst the gloom. But you can just about see it if you get close enough and it sounds right too.
The bank holiday visitors are going to be a bit frustrated if this doesn’t burn off quickly but it should do soon enough.
I would imagine that we could be gliding across knee to hip high and smooth little waves in pleasant sunshine by lunchtime or sooner!

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

The fog is just as thick and dense and bright around here this morning too!
The sea is successfully hiding within the gloom and murk of that mild but very damp fog but you can hear that it is all but flat.
Give it a couple of hours and it should be a beautiful place to go for a paddle but right now be careful that you don’t lose yourself!

Surf Forecast for Whit Sunday 24th May 2015

It might be forecast to be a bit drizzly and grey but I think that all of that should have moved along by lunchtime.
The surf is likely to remain small, a foot or two at best but the wind should stay light and it should brighten up eventually and that always makes a difference!

Surf Conditions for the Whit Weekend

The holiday weekend is looking promising with some bright enough and pleasant enough weather and that small and localised but steady little swell continuing throughout.
Saturday looks promising with plenty of bright weather expected, if the or when the early fog lifts. The wind might even slide offshore for a while through the morning, allowing a couple of feet or so of clean surf to tempt us in, especially through mid-morning, with plenty of sunshine eventually burning through to keep all the visitors happy.
The wind is probably going to back around to the north west again by Sunday and stay there for at least a few days but it should stay relatively light, strengthening through the afternoons, easing into the evenings.
Sunday is likely to start of a bit damp and dreary but again should soon brighten up and stay bright all the way through Bank Holiday Monday.
So a lazy weekend of small but fun surf but generally okay weather awaits!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
