I guess the good news is that it’s not quite dire enough to be absolutely unsurfable. There were a few bods in at Dee Why for the early. It’s struggling to get to waist high, so you need to be extra keen. Just to add to the picture, the wind call is for SE early followed by a gradual change to light easterlies. Blergh. Good for getting work done I guess.
The low energy settings that have been showing in the forecasts for some time now are still there. The next 5-6 days (still) look pretty ordinary for the east coast. This morning’s run of the WAMs shows what seems to be an east coast low developing late in the weekend. That’s a big call at this stage though. I guess it’s the usual story with these forecasts – it’s something to watch for now, but it’s too early to make plans.
Have yourself a great day!
