Situation at 1000.
Wind is 20-25kts SE. Swell is averaging 4 metres from the east at 9 seconds (see below for snap from MHL Sydney buoy.
But Coffs and Crowdy show there’s likely more coming our way. Currently average heights up there are registering at 6 metres with average period around the 11 sec mark. That’s damn big.
Our next high tide is around 1230… but it’s not as big as the one at around 0100 tomorrow when the peak energy could be arriving.
I’m going out and about for another look in about an hour (around 1100)
