The wind is howling through this morning, the temperature drop reflecting the north nor’ westerly direction that it’s screaming in from.
Yep, a storm force blow is bending the hedges again, bringing chilly air our way and wrecking any thoughts of surfing here today! The surf is eight feet or so but it’s just a wrecked mess of windswept wash.
Even the seagulls have decided to do other things.

Harlyn (0*):  4 feet.

The car paintwork enjoyed a quick buff down while pulled up here this morning! That storm force wind is blasting into the bay, toppling the four feet of broken and chopped, blown out surf and blasting a sandstorm into the carpark. There’s nowhere to fit a surfboard on those windswept waves, even if you wanted to!
No, it’s a south coast day today, if you’re keen enough!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 13th January 2016

A slow start should show Harlyn cleaning up as the day rolls on.
The wind and the waves are both likely to be a little quieter than Tuesday’s stormy blow, the wind backing more south westerly through morning.
We are probably going to be seeing a half decent three fete or so of offshore surf on the afternoon tide and it should all be a little lighter and brighter too!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

This week has started off again with strong blowing north westerly winds, making a mess of the surf everywhere on this coast while dropping the air temperature at the same time.
Big swells have been rolling our way through Monday and into Tuesday, that wind making a wild mess of those choppy and bouncing waves but it should back to the south west if only for a short while during midweek.
So, a couple of days of south coast surf action are calling with smaller midweek, offshore Harlyn for a day or two before returning to the south coast as those north westerlies blow again.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
