Grey skies and rain return to Sydney

Posted by: on August 10th, 2010

Hello Friends,

Another round of showers and so-so conditions for Sydney this morning. The ocean looks kinda junky and small which figures because the average period has dropped to around the 8 second mark. Swell is still coming from the SE and is averaging around 1.5 metres.

This morning’s run of the WAMs is looking okay for the Sydney region. If things play out as expected, we should see ENE facing stretches benefiting from a little pulse out of that direction starting late tonight and continuing for 36-48 hours. The bigger spots could be seeing head high sets on the bombs, although at this stage it looks as though the average heights will be closer to chest high.

We have a gale warning in the Sydney region today, but the call is for the rain to clear away by early tomorrow morning. From Wednesday onward, the Bureau is expecting mainly sunny weather. Throw in a generally NW to W wind regime, and it’s looking good.

Go well with your day!
