At 8.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
The streams and gullies are still roaring this morning but the sky is gradually clearing, that torrential rain finally but reluctantly sloping off.
But there’s still that gusting west sou’ westerly chilling the air as it blows the tops off four feet and bigger of grey and wintery looking rolling swell.
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
The west sou’ westerly wind is whistling across Harlyn Bay this morning as the stream floods across the beach to meet the three feet of wind warped and chequered surf.
The dark grey, ribbed waves are being held and then pushed by that bullying wind making for the occasional interesting section or two if you are keen for a surf. But I’d get on it sooner rather than later, the dropping tide is unlikely to be too kind to it.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:13 (2.6m) High Tide: 10:49 (5.9m)
Forecast for Friday 22nd January 2021
Light breezes are going to be drifting back and fore all day today, maybe breezing offshore for a while around highish tide. And with a meaty swell still budding itself into the bays we could just see some excellent surf here and there.
As always timing will be everything but there might just be some fun and testing, if a little chilly feeling surf to play in.
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!
