Huey’s feeling generous this morning kids. Swell angle is perfect for most of Sydney, coming as it does from the SE at a couple metres at 9 seconds (with the odd 11 second bomb). Dee Why is about as populated as you’d expect it to be on a cool and sunny autumn Sunday morning. There was some breeze about, but the automated weather stations along our stretch of coast are were showing in coming mainly from the WNW. Once again, ideal for the swell direction. Oh, and just to cap it all off, we have an incoming tide to a moderate midday high, so this morning should be very fun. Did I mention sunny all day?
Get out there if you can because the swell is expected to gradually fade from the current shoulder to head high sets to maybe waist to chest by the end of the day.
The coming week is shaping to be partly cloudy with generally westerly to SW winds. Tomorrow may not be too flash, but from there on we should get waves of some sort or other. The long range models are currently suggesting we might get a nice solid pulse next weekend. Ah, autumn, we love ya!
A high pressure ridge over NSW is weakening as a cold front and weak trough approach from the south and west. The trough will affect the southern half of the coast Sunday and the front will reach the far south Sunday evening. On Monday the low pressure trough will deepen off the NSW north coast with a low developing during Tuesday increasing south to southwesterly winds along the coast.
