Not warm this morning, but there are waves. We have a couple metres of 8 sec period south swell working its way into the usual spots. The beachy is bigger than the point at Dee Why, with sets approaching the shoulder high range. Lots of folk were not being put off by the bitterly cold S-SW wind. It should be sunny all day, but the wind is due to swing more to the south, so conditions at some spots may go from okay to marginal.
From the look of the swell data, we should have waves of some description all day.
Tomorrow should see the conditions weaken into the marginal range, but then the models suggest that energy levels will perk up on Monday. In fact, the outlook for all next week is pretty reasonable – mainly fine conditions and waist to head high more or less. Peak days are currently forecast to be Weds and Thrs.
High tide: 0913, Low 1513
