We woke up to the sound of rain on the roof and the swish of tyres on wet streets this morning. And surfers woke up to an ocean of calmness. From the look of Dee Why this morning, it’s going to be a challenge to catch much of anything there at all. The MHL buoy shows swell out of the SE but with only a metre and just 8 seconds average period to work with, Huey’s not likely to serve up anything very exciting – or even rideable.
There wasn’t much wind to start with, but the forecast is for a moderate southerly to get going this morning. Some of the models suggest that this might lead to a small pulse for south facing stretches tomorrow morning. But overall, the outlook according to the latest wave height forecast is for marginal to flat conditions across the next three days. The prospect of another good size pulse on Saturday has disappeared from the long range estimates.
Oh well… Huey will get over this slackness sooner or later….
Have yourself a top old day!
