Had a look at the beach late and can report it was just as ordinary as this morning. No real sign of a substantive change to the swell settings since then either. Still fluffing along at a couple metres and 7 sec apart. Waves are extremely junky and forming and reforming in such a jumble that you’re hardpressed to get into ’em.
Outlook is for the cursed wind to blow pretty strongly tomorrow, so I’m not hopeful of a quality improvement at all. The chance of showers doesn’t really brighten the picture much either.
The models aren’t showing a huge increase tomorrow (there’s nothing much showing on the buoys either), but the Bureau reckons it’ll ramp up. For their part, the WAMs are showing it kicking in from around midday Thursday, fading slightly on Friday, kicking back up for Saturday morning. The Bureau says the wind should go more NE and come back a bit for Thr as well…
Oh, and we look like getting overhead and a bit at the very least during the peak pulses.
Just the thing to lull yourself off to sleep with this evening…
