At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
It’s a mizzly old start to the day, all a bit grey and damp with a fresh enough wind rustling across the headland.
And so the surf isn’t all that; three feet or so of bumpy and crumbly waves are wandering casually into the bay, casually breaking wherever they want. It’s likely to increase in size through the day, especially on this evening’s tide and the wind is probably going to ease by this evening too but it is still unlikely to be that great!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A couple of feet or so of crumbly and fairly weak looking little waves are tumbling ashore here this morning, the odd slightly bigger set looking just that bit more interesting. It could be better this afternoon on the incoming tide.
It should be bigger anyway!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:57 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:47 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 15th March 2017
Superlight onshore winds are being forecast for today as high pressure takes a bit more control and the surf should be thumping through!
I suspect that Harlyn could be the break of choice locally, unless the breeze switches offshore at any stage (maybe by late evening?).
Yep, Harlyn and other surf breaks like it could just be really very good today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to plague a week of otherwise fairly hefty swells and mainly pleasant weather.
Looking at the maps though, there is just a chance that a tiny but tight low pressure system could throw some thick swells our way through the middle of the week, just as a streak of high pressure manages to stretch over the county.
Midweek could just turn out to be a whole lot better than the surf forecast sites are predicting!
So,to start the week that same north westerly wind will be chopping up an otherwise solid six feet or so of swell, the wind calming and dropping to no more than a breeze by Tuesday. Still onshore but maybe light enough to allow some shape to those strengthening swells.
The breeze is likely to back to the south west through midweek, a brighter and sunnier few days cheering us all up while we enjoy what might just end up being some really good surf at Harlyn!
And then back come the north westerlies for the weekend!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
