We’re in for a hot one today but it doesn’t look as though Huey will be supplying much in the way of diversions for refugees from the heat.
The problem is that we only have about 1.5 metres of 6 sec period south windswell. So, even if you’re at a beach with straight south exposure, you’ll be doing very well to find anything much above waist high. Anywhere else and you’re looking at swimming and snorkeling.
We’re due for a late southerly change which should give us an increase in wave energy by tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, it promises to be blowing pretty hard from the south as well. The period is likely to be pretty short, so I wouldn’t expect to see too much getting into the protected south corners. By tomorrow afternoon, the wind is set to drop a bit and swing around to the more easterly quarters. Not helpful Huey. Sounds like a recipe for junky conditions to me.
No real sign of much beyond knee to waist high windswell for the next week. However, as always, Huey will have the last word!
Go well with your day and stay happy.
