At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Another dull and dreary dawn is gradually and reluctantly giving way to something only a little brighter. That cold wind is still blowing across the bay, hollowing out those tiny left hand breaking waves but putting a surface chop on the rest of it.
There’s only a foot or so of weak and broken looking, tumbling surf rolling into the bay, the wind biting at it, the rain smoothing it, a little.
The weather is not great and neither is the surf but the forecasts are showing massive improvements, to the weather at least.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is flat again around here this morning, that wash of ripples being caught by the wind and making for a choppy and sloppy, grey kind of sea.
It’s not even looking that attractive for a paddle here this morning, not in this bitingly cold wind.
But change is on the cards, hopefully by this afternoon it should be brighter and milder.
But I think that the surf is likely to remain flat here and only tiny and sloppy on the other side too.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:22 (2.0m) High Tide: 10:53 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 6th September 2015
The wind looks to be a lot lighter today, still continuing to blow from the north and so still cold but lighter and less effective on the tiny surf.
Well, I say tiny but it could easily be flat today!
Although I think that with a bit of timing and looking around then there might be some small but rideable surf, probably at Constantine at higher tide and then Booby’s later.
But it is going to be really small and weak too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
There’s a high pressure system trying build over us while a little low pressure system is trying to deepen out in the Atlantic. If either can establish themselves than everything could come together in the shape of settled weather and small but clean surf.
But it looks like it might be late into the weekend before everything does settle as it can.
And so in the meantime that brisk north westerly wind continues to control our weather for a little while at least.
Saturday should repeat the pattern of the last week or so with fresh and cold, onshore north westerly winds not doing much to help the surf at all. Shin-high junk surf is about as much as we can expect as we go into this weekend.
And then high pressure should take control as the weekend unfolds with only small surf but with much cleaner conditions and much better weather due for Sunday.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
