Tuesday 17th October

Looking flat today but things look interesting as ex Hurricane ' Ophelia ' is forecasted to enter the North sea. Likely outlook is the swell will likely hit after dark this evening . Keep an eye out last light for an early arrival but realistically its tomorrow folks .

WNW flat - possibly picking up later SW 20 - 30 mph 3.11 5.5m 3.46 5.6m
Wednesday 18th October

swell picking up all day with heights around 2-3 feet. Winds are forecasted lighter earlier in the day while the swell is likely to be a touch bigger later. Check a reliable wind forecast like Windguru Scarborough as storm ' Ophelia ' could throw a few suprises today. If she pulls into the Low situated further north, wave heights could be significantly bigger. Roll the dice here see what happens.

NNW 2 - 3 feet ESE 5 - 11 mph 3.59 5.7m 4.27 5.7m
Thursday 19th October

Best conditions of 2 feet + of surf will likely be morning time when offshore winds and clean lines look forcasted this moment in time. Swell is likely to drop through the day and winds look to be swinging later to a more SSE direction .

NNW 2 feet + SW 4 - 12 mph 4.40 5.8m 5.03 5.8m
Friday 20th October

Difficult to call this one. Likely scenario is very small leftovers surf as the swell drops away. Check the webcams early doors to avoid a flat dissapointment.

NNW 1 - 2 feet WSW 12 - 16 mph 5.16 5.9m 5.39 5.8m
Saturday 21st October

Different wave model predictions all saying conflicting things. To me most point to a big increasing NW swell much later in the day towards nightfall folks. Keep youposted as weather patterns twist and turn. 

Cheers Scotty 

NW flat picking up evening time WNW 15 - 20 mph 5.50 5.9m 6.13 5.8m
