At 8.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
We are enjoying a more typical winter’s morning than we have seen for a little while this morning with a blustering old sou’ westerly wind blowing in some short and sharp squally showers along with plenty of dull and grey but mild weather. That wind is also blowing in a building but lumpy and choppy four to five feet of rolling surf too, those windblown, deep grey waves growling into the bay.
It’s all too windy and choppy for me but Hilly, Neil and one or two others are looking curious.
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet with bigger sets
That sou’ westerly wind is whistling offshore at Harlyn this morning, prettying up the smaller than expected two feet or so of smooth faced little waves as they lazily roll over the high tide bank. The swell should build soon enough, the occasional bigger set peaking just a bit further out already.
But right now it’s that lazy kind of morning here, the grey sky and sea just making it all even cosier than usual.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:42 (2.0m) High Tide: 09:19 (6.5m)
Forecast for Wednesday 20th January 2021
We should escape the full effects of Storm Christoph as it swaggers by the Uk further to the North but we will still likely enjoy plenty of hard blowing wind along with enough wetness.
Those strong sou’ westerly winds are going to be blowing some big waves our way today but there probably won’t be that many places to surf, those obvious tucked away little spots being the exception.
Conditions for the Start of the Week
Strong south westerly winds are likely to bring damper but maybe milder conditions throughout this coming week as Storm Christop flounces across the North Atlantic over the next few days.
With plenty of little storms out in the Atlantic we should enjoy our fair share of bouncy little waves to ride too, Harlyn being the venue of choice in these conditions, this wind should be mainly offshore there for most of the week.
That wind should bring milder temperatures too, maybe throwing just a little hint of Spring at us by midweek, if only briefly.
So with a building four foot sell rolling our way throughout the week, we can look forward to some fun Harlyn isolation sessions!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
