SCUBA DIVING WALES, SOUTH WALES CARDIFF, SWANSEA, LLANELLI, CARMARTHENSHIRE – Yet again another stormy and unsettled week ahead, strong winds, heavy rain and big sea swells means that conditions are not good for scuba diving this week. Visibility will be minimal in all areas especially close to Cardiff, Porthcawl, Swansea and up to West Wales. There will be a couple of days when the wind will be offshore which will settle the sea levels but the swells are still high effecting the entry and exit conditions as well as the underwater state. Even inland will be affected by the heavy rain again.
