At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Heavy rain is being carried across the bays by a blustering south south easterly, the tuorquoise sea smooth and clear on this murky, mucky old morning.
Barely a ripple of a wave is breaking at high tide but as the wind backs to the south west through midday look out for some more waves. We should be enjoying a couple of feet or so of mixed and choppy stuff by this evening.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
A deserted and desolate Harlyn is enjoying a midsummer washdown as the rain powers across the bay this morning, the silver sea reflecting the low slung cloud cover on a mirror flat day of no surf.
It is still beautiful, just in a different kind of way.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:46 (0.9m) High Tide: 18:41 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 20th August 2020
Storm Ellen is likely to be shaking and shivering the wind and rain all over us all day long today.
As usual, another mid August storm is going to be galloping by, just to remind us that we are but a little island squatting in the North Atlantic and so subjected to the roars and groans that that mighty expanse of sea might choose to throw our way.
Strong winds will mix with high tides to try and create some mischief, so take it easy whatever you might be doing, it could become a little testing as we go along.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A fun week of mixed weather and building surf should keep us entertained throughout this week as the weirdest summer holiday season ever slowly starts to come to a close.
Starting out with flat conditions, the breeze is likely to ease onshore and slowly strengthen through midweek, those weak and disorganised little windswells tumbling into each other before becoming more organised through the back half of the week.
And then we should see something more solid with waves getting into the ‘big’ category by week’s end!
Tuesday promises to be the most comfortable ‘beach’ day weather wise but overall, although we will see a mix of conditions this week, it should be generally okay enough to hang out at the beach for most of the time. Most of the time before storm Ellen hits, that is. Wednesday night and Thursday morning will see strong winds and bigger waves combining with those big spring tides to cause some damage if we’re not careful.
So, wax the boards down, it’s all looking promising for some pumping waves (okay, dumping Harlyn then!) by the end of the week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
