At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s about as ‘weathery’ as you can get out there this morning with blue skies above, black skies beyond, rainbows in-between and sheet rain blasts everywhere lasting for moments, or minutes or hours during the night.
South westerly winds are blustering into the bays pushing three feet of slopped and chopped, bouncy surf ahead of them. So we’re going to end up enjoying a mixed cup but okay kind of a day, more early Spring than early summer.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Smaller waves than expected are spilling quietly into a moody Harlyn Bay this morning, the south westerly wind blowing steadily offshore while heavy downpours flash by amongst the rainbows and sunshine of a mixed up old day.
The tide should push a little more surf our way but it’s unlikely to be much better than okay.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:23 (2.3m) High Tide: 10:05 (5.8m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 19th May 2021
Lighter onshore winds are going to continue to blow over us today, maybe slightly more from the north, making for sloppy conditions everywhere while keeping temperatures lower. But otherwise it should be okay generally.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore breezes are going to frustrate what would otherwise be a promising start to this week.
With plenty of storm activity out in the Atlantic we can expect enough swell to keep us all happy but those winds will slop and chop and frustrate at all of our main surf breaks on this coast.
We should get an opportunity for cleaner conditions at Harlyn through Tuesday afternoon while the winds on Wednesday are expected to be variable, probably ending up bringing sloppier than we would like conditions to all the breaks again.
And then another low pressure will bumble over us towards next weekend bringing storming swells and more lively onshores!
Friday could just end up being fairly mighty at Harlyn – but that’s a long way off just yet!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
