At 8.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A thick and drenching sea mist is clinging to the coast this morning, visibility down to feet and inches rather than kilometres.
And it’s nice to see the thermometer up into double figures for the first time in a while, even if that soaking breeze is still keeping a chill to it.
There’s not much surf, a couple of feet of wishy washy and onshore slopped little waves are tumbling ashore but hardly worth the virus-dodging shenanigans that are still needed.
Then again, those write-off sessions often end up being the most fun ones too!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
Harlyn is silently wrapped in a cosy thick fog this morning, the odd seabird shrieking muffled shouts in search of a friend, the steady thump, thump of the Diesel engine of an invisible someone deeper offshore, maybe dragging their lobster baskets in, though that’s a bit late isn’t it?
There’s not much surf, the occasional foot or two of ribbed and warped little waves stumbling onto the sand.
This afternoon’s tide might give it a little extra push but it’s not looking all that promising.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:56 (1.7m) High Tide: 16:47 (6.6m)
Forecast for Thursday 28th January 2021
South westerly winds are going to be blowing mild but wet air into our bays while heaving some thick and lumpy swells our way too.
Harlyn is going to be the spot for those within covid restricted travelling distance.
Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gentler temperatures wait for us this week, especially towards the end of the week as onshore winds feed in wetter but warmer air while big swells start lumping their way into the bays.
The wind is likely to strengthen from the south west, gradually building through Monday afternoon, staying steady into Tuesday and Wednesday before pushing in harder through the end of the week.
A fresh Sou’ Westerly wind along with a building winter swell are always the recipe for a period of thumping and snappy close-outs to negotiate at Harlyn, those elusive, peeling grinders always being just one more wave away!
So, although this week starts out gently with still and frosty conditions, the winds will gradually strengthen and bring in more damp Atlantic weather.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
