Very quiet looking in the old Sydney today. Hardly any swell energy about and what there is seems to be coming from the east according to the latest MHL data. It’s about 0.5 metre and the period is a weak 8 seconds. Since I’m not in a position to grab a snap for you, I’ve picked up one from the WRL beach survey camera high atop the flight deck building in Collaroy. Good to see they’re still shoving sand out at Mactier and Wetherill streets. That’s one advantage of no swell any way.
The good news is that the swell forecast models are showing another little pulse developing overnight and into tomorrow. The Bureau reckons 2-3m from the NE, but the various interpretations of the model data don’t seem to be quite so hopeful. Nevertheless, there could be some shoulder to head high energy if you’re lucky (loud gnashing of teeth from your currently inland webmaster).
And it basically looks as though there should be a steady supply of surf right into the weekend before another lull next week…
All good! Go well one and all.
