At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet.
Another mizzle-laden day blankets us this morning, the visibility low, the air damp and the temperatures as low as the cloud is clinging.
It’s hardly a balmy summer’s day!
But the sun should eventually emerge, or at least shadow itself by midday, maybe.
In the meantime the wind is light but still onshore and still making a bit of a mess of the small and weak looking surf.
A couple of feet or so of slow moving and lazy looking little waves are stumbling ashore, ruffled and slopped by that light but steady onshore, westerly wind. It could just build a fraction for high tide at lunchtime but it is still unlikely to be all that.
Saying that, we could be in for a day of two halves, this afternoon maybe hinting at something brighter, clearer and more fun.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It is pretty much flat here again today. Smoother, glassier, sharper but still flat in the marine layer murk of a more autumnal morning than a high summer one.
It might not be good idea to even go for a paddle in this mizzle and murk either, you might not find your way back!
But lunchtime could see an improvement, in visibility, not the surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:14 (2.1m) High Tide: 12:42 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 29th July 2016
Lighter onshore breezes will continue to ruffle the still three feet or so of weak surf.
The weather is likely to continue to be a bit mixed but should show just enough brightness to keep most happy, while the three foot surf continues to be ruffled and lightly slopped as it rolls steadily in.
So, another not greta one but providing just enough surf and weather to keep us hippyish.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well at least the weather might improve for the weekend!
Light breezes are set to gently waft our way as we go into the weekend, that same three foot swell continuing to lazily roll our way.
Those breezes are likely to be light enough and mainly from the north west, a chillier direction and not very supportive of the swell, while that swell is likely to be just a continuation of the same close-fetch and fairly weak stuff that we have enjoyed all week.
So, a weekend of mainly fun and playful surf with enough sunshine to resemble summer lies in wait!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
