Hazy skies early, fluffy looking waves as the wind fades

Hello Friends,

Just a quick note, will follow up later. This morning sees light onshores and a couple metres of east windswell are combining to deliver so-so but surfable conditions at Dee Why. Average wave height looks to be around the waist to chest high mark.

Weather Situation
A strong slow-moving high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge to northwestern New South Wales and a low pressure trough lies over the Coral Sea. A vigorous east to southeast airstream over the northern New South Wales coast, between these systems, is expected to persist until about Wednesday. Along the southern half of the coast winds will tend east to northeast at first under the dominating high pressure ridge. A weak cold front may bring a southerly change to the southern half from late Thursday.
