At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
Yuk, it’s another one of those ones today!
The rain continues to be blown around by a cold north north easterly wind, while the murk and dampness of a cold Atlantic morning creep across the sand.
Right now the surf doesn’t look too bad, that wind is almost clean offshore adding a little shape to the struggling two feet or so of otherwise grey and dreary little waves.
But the wind is forecast to continue to swing to north westerly and that will be direct onshore everywhere, making for junky conditions for the rest of the day.
I can’t imagine any swell getting around to the far coast but that would be the only option for any cleaner waves.
So, time to get on with all those indoor jobs that were put off during that moment of summer last week!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Only tiny little waves are trickling in here this morning, the wind shaking surface chop across the top of them all.
With visibility low and the murk and mizzle of a miserable winter’s morning covering the bay, well, there are better things to do today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:28 (1.6m) High Tide: 10:07 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 30th June 2017
Strong and cold north westerly winds are going to be blowing hard down the coast all day long today.
And that will junk the three to four feet of localised windswell that will be blown around the bays. Throw in more chilly and windy, more autumnal weather and, all in all, it’s unlikely to be the finest day of the summer.
If any swell is getting into those south coast breaks then that should make the drive worthwhile but it is only likely to be small over there too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It could very well end up being a weekend of two distinctive halves this weekend, the trail end of that low pressure system hanging around for a day or so too long before we see a light high pressure system dropping over us.
So Saturday should be much brighter but still with that cold and annoying north westerly wind blowing down the coast making a mess of the small surf.
But that junky and choppy surf might just end up being rideable through late morning and into the afternoon providing a lot of sloppy and choppy little peaks for those of you nimble and able enough to throw some air action out there.
The wind should lighten up a lot by Sunday, still blowing onshore from the north west but again allowing some leaping about on those choppy peaks.
And that is likely to lead us into what looks like another week of onshore winds and mediocre surf.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
