It’s pumping at east swell spots, so take care if you’re heading out. Looks like a morning of solid swell coming up. The wind is set to be light offshore, it’s sunny and there’s two metres of cleaned up 10 second east swell pushing in. You really should be spoiled for choices this morning. Wind is expected to go NE in the afternoon, but with luck it won’t be too hard. As the sun leaves the eastern horizon behind, it looks as though we’re in for a great day of surf.
From the shape of the forecast models, this is peak day and by this afternoon the models show the swell starting to drop away. With luck it’ll be a slow process and we’ll still have plenty of fun for tomorrow as well.
I went shooting at North Narra yesterday, so I’ll have lots to share later on. However, if it goes well, I’ll get some more pics today to add to the collection.
Have a good one and check back later as I plan to update.
TIDES: H @noon L @1750
A low pressure system lies over Bass Strait with a trough to a second weaker low over the Tasman Sea. These systems are producing a fairly moist west to southwest airstream over NSW with showers about the western slopes of the ranges and in the south. The low pressure area is expected to move slowly to the south over the next few days with a high pressure ridge gradually becoming established over NSW.
