Much less choppy this morning, but the swell has dropped pretty dramatically as well. It’s still out of the east (so not too great for Dee Why, which is the only place I’ve looked at so far today). Winds were lightly west and are expected to go N-NE but to weaken further as the day goes along. Bureau says it’ll be mostly fine with the possibility of a shower along the coast early.
Couple of bods were out at Dee Why when I took the photo, but they were struggling to get much. Catchable set waves looked to be fairly intermittent. Size on the sets seemed to be in the shoulder to head high range, so it ain’t flat. But the more average waves were half that whilst I was watching.
Outlook is for the energy levels to decline through the day, but with luck it’s not going to drop into the flat range. The models are currently suggesting that Wednesday will be about the best combo for us this week; shoulder high from the ESE and offshore is the estimate. Thereafter the wind goes more southerly and periods drop back, even as the average size gets back into the 2+ metre range. So windswelly, the odd shower, generally southerly and not too spectacular is the call for late in the week.
Go well with your endeavours and have yourself a top old day!
Next tide is a high at 0843, the low is at 1415.
