The waves are back this weekend, I had meant to stick up a heads up earlier in the week but I've been too busy. The swell is probably peaking about now, and will fade overnight to leave small swells and offshore winds just about the whole of next week. Offshore, that is, with a lot of easterly in it and that means more cold weather to tinkle with your goolies.
By about Wednesday, a low starts to pick up some momentum in Atlantic and this will bring some pretty decent swell in for the weekend. It's still early days for the detailed forecast but if the current prognosis pans out it'll be roast beef with all the trimmings. Confidence is pretty high as there is good alignment with the UK European and American models that
1. the low develops
2. high pressure holds firm over Scandinavia to keep the wind south-easterly over the bank holiday.
I've got a week off and plan to make the most of it.
Right I'm off down the allotment to plant some spuds, before heading down the beach.
