SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE - Stormy conditions for the next 24 hours at least with high winds, big swells and heavy rain. This will affect the diving conditions in the area dramatically. There will be no scuba diving possible on the South wales coastline especially around Cardiff, Porthcawl, Swansea and Carmarthenshire for the next day or two. Looking to when the swell and the wind drops into next week with offshore winds predicted across the region and smaller swells which should allow for access into the water for many areas. Visibility will be low due to the recent spate of weather with high winds and big sea swells, even inland sites will be affected by the heavy rain over the past few days. Hopefully next weeks offshore winds and lower swells will see better diving conditions.
