At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
The weight of a proper Cornish coastal fog is bearing down on us this morning, a cosy damp blanket of murk and mizzle still snuggling over the coastline.
You can barely see the beach never mind the surf but it sounds like there’s a couple of feet of surf crumbling ashore in the lightest of onshore, north westerly breezes.
It might be this afternoon before this fog burns off but it will, eventually.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A spooky calmness has Harlyn in its foggy grip this morning, the muffled swish of tiny waves washing ashore on the onshore breeze.
This fog doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere anytime soon but it will eventually burn off to leave something brighter and better. We hope.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:58 (2.7m) High Tide: 11:35 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 13th August 2020
Another day of murk and mizzle is likely to keep the visitors hunkered down in the towns and villages today, the beach offering nothing much more than a cosy claminess of damp.
It might be evening before brightness wins through.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Northerly breezes are likely to continue to tumble and crumble a small and fairly weak little swell throughout this coming week, not really allowing the surf to be any better than a cruisy summer affair.
Mixed weather with plenty of murky, damp fog and mizzle is going to unsettle our summertime visitors too, with those marauding showers keeping everyone on their toes but with enough brighter spells to just about make it worthwhile.
So, those mid-length cruisers, longboards and cheaters are going to be the boards of choice again this week, anything with enough float and stability to buoy you through the flats.
But there will be enough surf and enough weather to keep most of us fairly happy and occupied, surfing those long summer days away and cruising at the beach.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
