Default West Cornwall - Surfy, Sunny & Warmer.

Yesterday was the 1st day to fail to reach 15C (peaking at just 14.7C) since 19th May (14.1C). A distinctly chilly wind.

Today a complete contrast. With a very gentle breeze off the Bay, where the SSTs still around 16C, the prolonged morning sunshine into SE facing Penzance pushed the temperature up to 17.8C by 13:30. A bit more like it, it feels vastly different.

Interestingly, a narrow band of thin Sc which crossed just after dawn, developed into a line of Cu & Cb as it's moved up the County, to give some showers well to the east.

Surfwise September was generally excellent, and the forthcoming week looks an absolute classic, with deep lows locked in mid west Atlantic and offshore winds on the north coast. By the time the swells, generated largely 1,000 miles away, get here, it'll result in a long period, pretty big clean swell.

Yesterday was a bit of a shock to the system Graham. Cool and showery
for most of the day and then a very chilly night for early October.

Reached a maximum of 16.1°C yesterday though that was in the sunnier
interludes, rather cooler in the showers giving a total of 4.6 mm.

And what a contrast today was; unbroken sunshine all day with a crystal
clear sky. And it was strong sunshine too despite the low(ish) elevation.

A maximum of 18.1°C today and 10.9 hours of sunshine. A rare (for the
time of year) sea breeze set in around midday changing the wind
direction quite abruptly from a northerly to a southerly.

UV levels dropping like a stone, now struggling to make it to 4.0.
Suntan's just about holding on....

18.0C eventual max here, the onshore breeze picked up a bit around 15:00.

Plenty in the sea today in a very nice wave. I wasn't able to go, other commitments. A shame as I can't imagine it being this good again this year. Looks like being windy here for at least the next 2 days, and rather dangerously big. I would like to squeeze in at least 1 more surf before it's too cold, it's a long time until next May.

BTW, Graham - do you know about the 'Love St Ives' group on Facebook - I
just discovered it!

Load of great piccys there, now including some of my own.

I glance at it occasionally Paul, if there's dolphins around, that sort of thing. It is essentially a travel agents / visitors page, there seems to be one for most resorts, e.g. Newquay https://www.facebook.com/LoveNewquay .

They've arrived - http://www.sennen-cove.com/index.htm . High tide, the beach has vanished, extreme surfers are out. The swell might not be that high, but the clean & long period nature, evident in the photos, makes them powerful. Height isn't everything.

Penzance - A sunny, breezy day.
