Nice morning, but lookin’ very small

Posted by: on January 18th, 2010

Hello Friends,

As expected, not much going on this morning at Dee Why. But the good news is that we should see a south pulse and SW wind by tomorrow morning. The wind’s set to go pretty hard by this afternoon and to blow overnight, but we should have a couple metres of south swell filling in at the same time.

With any luck the energy won’t drop away too quickly and we’ll have waves all day tomorrow with maybe a scrap left over for Wednesday at the south swell magnets.

This could be the best swell we’ve had in a couple months – if it happens as the models anticipate.

By Wednesday evening it could be back to very small. But, the patterns seem to be shifting a bit. The Bureau is watching for a possible cyclone to develop in the Gulf and some of the models are showing it sitting off far north Queensland by the weekend. That’s all a long, long way from surfable cyclone swell in Sydney, but hey, it gives us something to watch.

Go well with your day
