After blowing ESE overnight, the wind is now around to the SE at around 10 kts at 0900. The swell is still SSE at a couple metres out where the MHL buoy floats, but inshore the waves are around the waist to chest high range on sets. Dee Why looked very messy and junky, but thanks to the sunny skies, there were more than a few takers. The wind is going to continue in much the same way, so there’s no point waiting around for it to back off. Get your mind into junk surfing mode and get out there and enjoy that warm water.
Tomorrow looks like being cloudy and wind too, so at this stage I’m not too hopeful of anything like an improvement. With luck it’ll hold at about the current
This morning’s run of the models is not too encouraging for our region. It looks as though the current energy levels might stick around for another 24 hours or so before slumping back toward a run of near flat days that could last into next weekend. Bah!
