The gloomy old gloom back again

Posted by: on January 27th, 2010

Hello Friends,

10-15 kts of southerly, slate grey skies and choppy seas with no visible swell. What can ya say? Not happening this morning in Sydney. When will it change? Hmmm…

…well, not today, that’s for sure. The wind will stay onshore and the weak 6 sec period southerly windswell is highly unlikely to bump up today.

From the latest run of the swell models, it would seem that Sydney will be just about flat for at least the next three days. But then the data starts to look a bit more hopeful.

If things unfold the way the forecast supercomputer is currently calculating, we could see the development of a broad easterly swell front hitting the coast from around Sunday onward. Indeed, at the outer extremity of the predicitions a very long fetch is shown developing from well to the NE of NZ and into the Tasman Sea. If this happens, we should see some pretty solid east swell for early next week.

Good to see something hopeful like that on the cards…

Have yourself a top old day and keep on smilin’!
