You need to keep an eye on rainfall as heavy rain will lead to flashing as ground water levels are high again after recent rain. This does mean the waterfall levels will be constant however, you still need to watch plunge pool depths with current river levels. The water temperature on the river is pretty constant throughout the year however, with air temperatures dropping and strong winds forecast you need to be thinking of thermal protection for before, during and after any outdoor activity.
Once again we're unlikely to see the conditions required for any Coasteering activities in South Wales this weekend. We're going to be seeing big swell over the whole weekend, up to 6ft at times and some big Southerlies too, reaching almost 40mph at times!
If you want to get out any about, you'll need to head inland to the Brecon Beacons and try some Gorge Walking or Canyoning. These will give you all the thrills and jumps of a Coasteering activity without the coastal conditions to contend with.
Surf's going to be big this weekend, and less experienced surfers may find the conditions challenging. For you more experienced surfers, head to some of South Wales' more sheltered bays, such as Caswell Bay in Swansea or Rest Bay in Porthcawl and you could be in for some great fun. You'll need to keep an eye on the wind as we're due some big Southerlies and water temperatures are dropping, so decent thermal protection is going to be required.
We're still running our activities over the weekend, with our usual mix of Stag weekends from Cardiff and Swansea, Hen parties from across South Wales. They'll be taking part in both Gorge Walking & Canyoning activities, weather permitting up in the Brecon Beacons.
We've mentioned it already, but full safety equipment and proper thermal protection is absolutely vital for any outdoor activity!
