Tidier and some chest high sets too

Posted by: on August 24th, 2011


Hello Friends,

Ocean looks much better this morning. Swell is around to the east now. It was close to two metres out at the MHL buoy and the average period is about 9 seconds. We’re heading into a sunny Wednesday with light offshores for the early which are expected to wander around to SE later, but not get up to much above the 10 kt mark.

Outlook is for the swell energy to gradually decrease over the rest of the week, but as of this morning the wave forecast models are calling for it to hold around the waist to chest high range through to Saturday.

Get out there and enjoy!

TIDES: L @0920, H @1610

Weather Situation
A strong, slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the NSW south coast. A low pressure trough lies over the Coral Sea and a vigorous east to southeast airstream, between these systems, lies over the northern Tasman Sea and northern NSW coast. The trough is likely to gradually contract east across the Tasman Sea on Thursday and Friday with winds easing in the north. A weakening southwest to southerly change is expected to affect NSW coastal waters late Thursday through Friday as a cold front enters the southern Tasman Sea. Another weak southwest to southerly change may affect the coast during the weekend.
