High tides are predicted for this afternoons high tide Monday 16th October. The winds are forecast to be gale force 9 from a south westerley direction. Offshore waves are expected to be very large. The combination of large waves together with high winds means that wave overtopping is likely in a number of exposed locations around the ceredigion coastline. In particular Aberystwyth sea front is likely to be affected by wave action and debris being swept onto the promenade area. At Aberaeron wave action is likely to affect the quayside in the Harbour. Wave action is also likely to affect the frontage at Borth and Clarach Bay. The majority of the Ceredigion coastline is likely to be affected this afternoon and care needs to be exercised during this stormy period. Be careful as sea spray and waves could be dangerous and could contain debris. The time of high tide at Aberystwyth is approximately 6:30 pm this afternoon.
