At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
……..and then it rained.
Those leaden skies are emptying themselves along the coast, a steady downpour of chilly wetness washing down the overused beaches and bays after that busiest of weekends. There’s barely a breeze to move this weather along yet, allowing the gardens, fields and bays a good old soaking.
But there is just enough of a breeze drifting down from the north west to make for slightly sloppy surf.
Two feet or so of close together and fairly shapeless little waves are washing ashore amongst the murk and gloom of a more autumnal morning.
It is likely to be late this afternoon before the skies brighten again and that will probably make the surf look more attractive, inviting you in for a low tide evening session.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It is all but flat again at Harlyn, an occasional one foot wash of leftover slop can just be seen through the murk and mizzle, reluctantly flopping onto the sand.
The other side isn’t great but at least it is surfable on this damp and dreary but kind of cosy late summer morning.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:24 (2.8m) High Tide: 11:57 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 31st August 2017
Another day of light onshore breezes will be slopping the small and weak, one to two feet of lazy surf.
It might just be a little brighter and milder but any sunshine will probably take some time to settle in as well!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
After Monday’s beautifully still and calm conditions, light north westerly winds are going to take us into the rest of this week, keeping the air temperatures just that bit lower than they might be while not helping the surf in any way either.
And so, as our seasonal visitors gradually wave goodbye on their return to reality, the weather is likely to ease away from that loveliness of the holiday weekend too.
Only tiny little waves will be breaking as we go into the week, the stillness of Monday being replaced by some sloppiness by Tuesday. We should see some slightly bigger waves by midweek but only in the two to three feet range and that is likely to be quite a weak two to three feet as well!
It looks as though it’s going to be well into the weekend or even the start of next week before we see anything worth getting excited about surfwise!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
