At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 feet.
Another damp ’n windy one is reminding us that summer can be ‘changeable’ around these parts!
A brisk westerly wind is gusting into the bay from the west north west this morning, chopping out the three feet or so of already chopped and slopped junk surf.
Dark and brooding clouds are bumbling across the horizon too, contrasting with the silver stuff above and reminding us that there will be the likelihood of some showers here and there, maybe not lasting that long but probably very wet when you are under them!
So, a day to do other things than surf maybe, unless there are some waves wandering along the far coast today?
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot.
A foot or two of windblown and weak looking little waves are crumbling ashore here a couple of hours ahead of low water, that west north westerly wind gusting onshore.
The tidal push should add a little size but the wind is forecast to blow onshore all day long.
Once the tide has moved up the bay though there could just be some fun, lumpy peaks to jump off for aerial guys but for most it looks as though it is likely to be just onshore and messy.
The south coast is the only option for some cleaner surf conditions but it is likely to be very small over there.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:49 (2.3m) High Tide: 14:49 (5.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 16th June 2016
That three to four foot, mixed up and choppy swell is likely to continue to be pushed our way by a continuing north westerly (onshore) blowing wind.
The weather is promising to be lighter and brighter although, as always, it is going to feel chilly in that wind.
So, another day where those south coast surf breaks might come alive if there is enough swell getting around to make it worth the journey!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
A more mixed start to the week has produced some bigger waves than we have seen for a little while with three to four feet of onshore blown swell rolling along the coast. By midweek we should be seeing some Harlyn action as the wind pushes as much as two to three feet of swell all the way around the headland.
The wind is likely to have settled to a more north westerly blow by then, onshore at Harlyn but still allowing some fun waves to keep a little shape.
And that’s likely to be the way of it through to the end of the week with three to four feet of swell rolling in, being pushed and pulled by steady north westerly winds, those winds veering back and forth from south westerly (Yay!) to north westerly (Booo!), before settling to a more direct (and chillier!) northerly direction.
So, this week promises a bit of a change to more breezy and damp and chillier weather with mixed up and sloppier surf conditions to play in!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
