Another grey and sullen, still day is greeting us this morning, the breeze non-existent, forecast to remain only light and to drift down from the north west later.
The surf isn’t all that great, a glassy foot or two of reluctant looking little waves spilling shorewards on the dropping tide.
But don’t write it off, the swell is likely to double in size with the afternoon tide while the wind should remain light throughout.
This afternoon could be a whole different world of fun surf and, you never know, maybe some brighter sunshine too!

Harlyn (0*):  6 inches to 1 foot.

Six inches to a foot of glassy little ripples are washing into the bay this morning, the seabirds seemingly having a feast for a noisy breakfast, that fish stock probably attracting the Seals in there later.
But right now there are no seals and no real waves to ride. The action is likely to be over on the other side of the headland today but maybe not until the tide turns and starts to push in.
Tomorrow though, tomorrow might be okay around here!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th March 2016

A steady three to four feet of mid teens wave-period swell is likely to be washing along the coast with a brisk south westerly wind.
Harlyn might just be okay today with an expected two to three feet of pleasantly shaped surf expected to wash into the bay!

Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

All eyes are on the Atlantic weather charts in anticipation of the Easter holiday this coming weekend.
And it is looking interesting from a surfing point of view!
As the wind swings onshore through midweek more swell should start to roll our way, slowly to start with but steadily building as the week winds down.
The very light north westerly winds of midweek will quickly be replaced by gusting south westerlies, veering back to northerly through Friday but easing to a light, light breeze as it does so, before surging back to the south west for the holiday weekend.
And so the surf should build, quickly offering enough size to get Harlyn to show off.
So it is looking very much like a Harlyn weekend with a brisk sou’ wester blustering in and pushing in a building four to five to six foot swell ahead of it, getting bigger by Easter Sunday.
We should be enjoying some pleasant and bright enough weather and fairly clean surf on Good Friday before more blustery and maybe a bit showery conditions hit us for the weekend.
Big spreads of sunshine are expected as well as those cloudy bits too, as growing swells start to boom into Harlyn through Saturday and into Easter Sunday and Monday.
Yep, it’s looking mainly okay for everyone this holiday weekend!
Have a great week and weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
