Newhaven Weather Forecast Sat 14th June 2014

Hi all,

I am after some help relating to the weather forecast for Newhaven Tommorrow Saturday 14th June,

I have just been on the met office weather forecast and I have seen the below, I am not 100% sure if it is ok to go out mainly because of the weather later on,

The weather sounds quite good at first but I am not so sure later on in the day, I am looking at going out between the hours of 08.30am & 17.00pm 2morrow & I am not so sure to make the 80 mile drive or not?,

I am still learning & understanding about marine weather so all help greatly received,

North Foreland to Selsey Bill

For coastal areas up to 12 miles offshore from 1800 UTC Fri 13 Jun until 1800 UTC Sat 14 Jun
24 hour forecast:

Wind - Variable 3 or 4, becoming northeasterly 4 or 5.

Sea State - Smooth becoming slight, occasionally moderate later near North Foreland.

Weather - Showers for a time.

Visibility - Good, occasionally moderate.

Absolutely typical Sussex coast weather, 99% of the time it's a south westerly force 3 or 4 with slight seas down here and bumpy in a SIB. But NE tomorrow so should be OK. But as always what the forecast says and what the sea is like when you get here can be completely different! Pi$$es me off and I'm only 8 miles from the beach! Of course if it turns grotty just come in, you won't be far from the shore in a SIB. Met office is OK but you're better off checking Magic Seaweed, Wind Guru etc. Have you been to sea before? Have you done PB2?

I have been to Sea and had a couple of boats before. I was younger and did not have so much sense as I do now to be truthful, so this time round all safety minded, VHF radio, flares etc, I don't fancy bouncing around all the time 2morrow, if you were me, would you abort?

I was out there last week, Cooden to Seaford. Forecast was smooth, 5kt wind, 12" 'waves' all day. The morning was glorious, like a mill pond around Beachy Head. Came out of Sovereign harbour mid afternoon, was blowing force 3/4 and very choppy...

Typical East Sussex day!

Last time I was out to test the boat out for the first time it was quite choppy, but we had one hell of a sun tan, :-)

so I would prefer to be able to travel a bit further out to sea in search of bigger fish so I need to make my long drive worth it, but safety is my priority along with my mates safety, I am also trying to finish running my outboard in as I have another 8 hours to go, then I need to get it serviced so it's a bit of a vicious circle,

Also bear in mind the on shore sea breezes that occur in this heat. They don't show on most forecasts. They start about 13:00 ish. Unless your waiting for them with your kite or windsurf then it doesn't happen!!
