They say it’s a storm of titanic portions. It’s name is Hercules and it geared up massive swell on the Portuguese coast. The black fetch on the graphs moved wide, fast and furious- something like I’ve never seen before. Watching the weather graph moving over our coastline has been a bit of a distraction for me during the past few days. We now can see its effects as the massive waves pounded into the coastline yesterday.
Southern Ireland is expected to see 13-15 metres of groundswell at 18 seconds on Friday afternoon, while Spain and Portugal is experiencing around 10 metres of groundswell at an astonishing 19 seconds.
