At 8.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A cold nor’ westerly wind is whittling down the coast this morning, that sharp winter sunshine throwing cold shadows across the golden chilled sand.
The surf is a mess, three or four feet of ripped and torn, hesitant and very cold looking surf. The water temperature has suddenly dropped into single figures over the last few days as we enter that real winter water stretch!
But it’s bright and fresh and those seabirds are loving life!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A freezing nor’ wester is blowing into a deserted Harlyn this morning, the ice blue sea awash with the winter screech of breakfasting seabirds. The early morning dawn light of a far away sun is throwing long shadows across the bay, warming the sand in the shelter of that chill wind.
It is quite beautiful here this morning but it’s not a place to linger half dressed.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:38 (2.7m) High Tide: 13:06 (5.6m)
Forecast for Sunday 24th January 2021
Another windswept and chilly kind of day awaits with that same cold north westerly wind blustering into the bays, ruining any surf that may wander our way.
Conditions for the Weekend
Friday’s teasingly promising conditions with calm and offshore breezes along with those clear skies are soon going to be replaced by the return of those equally cold but less pleasant north westerly winds.
A bumping and lumping four to six foot swell is going to be pushing through on Saturday, the waves getting much bigger as we go into a breezy and damp Sunday.
If we weren’t in the middle of a highly contagious global pandemic, all eyes would be looking to the south coast but as it is we can only wait for the inevitable images to appear from those within walking distance.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
