Light easterly winds are delivering a chopfest to our beaches. Outlook is for the wind to be E/SE all day, so you’ll want to be extra keen to get in the water I’d say. On top of the wind, or rather under it, the sea is currently slopping a rather ordinary SE windswell at us. It’s a couple metres offshore, but the average period is a platry 7 seconds so finding anything much above waist high will be an accomplishment.
The Goat’s forecast is interesting. He’s not as bullish on the swell prospects as the latest run of models for the Sydney region. We shall see what we shall see, but it looks from the WAMs as though we should definitely get surf over the Sun-Tue period.
Have yourself a good one!
