At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A clear and pale, milky blue sky is stretching out across the Atlantic again this morning, that sub-arctic breeze a degree or two colder again than yesterday, all making for a stunningly beautiful but bone chillingly icy cold morning.
A foot or occasionally two feet of deep winter blue curling and folding little waves are zipping across the lower tide banks in the sunshine, beckoning and calling but real small.
The longboard is going to love it!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
That strong breeze has a little more north in it this morning, making it that extra bit cooler as well as more onshore here.
It is pretty much flat anyway but it’s a choppy and cold looking flat too!
The other side is the one today and it is only small over there too, smart and clean and pretty but real small.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:30 (1.6m) High Tide: 15:26 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 28th February 2018
And on it goes!
The wind is staying offshore, wheeling in that cold, cold air from the east and meeting the keen-to-build swell head on. The foot or two of immaculately shaped surf that will be tempting us today would be twice that size if the wind eased up a little but then the air temperature would be higher too if that was the case!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those beautiful conditions of the weekend should last well into the start of this week, that beautiful, clear winter’s sunshine cheering us all up while Easterly breezes continue to hollow those little waves that are expected to peel across our favourite surf breaks.
Unfortunately those little waves are going to be exactly that though – little.
Maybe even going flat through Tuesday for a while.
And although the weather should be pretty and bright and beautiful as we start the week, it is going to be cold!
And by Tuesday that clear sky might just start to fill with thicker clouds. And that could lead to…… snow!
It would be nice to see some proper white stuff down here, it’s quite a rare thing and fun for kids of all ages! But we will have to wait and see for that one!
And then, of course, by the back half of the week we will be seeing the return of gusting south westerlies bringing milder but damper conditions as well as some much bigger surf.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
