Not much of interest going on at Dee Why this morning. The primary swell direction has gone around to the SE. It’s about a metre on average out at sea and averaging 8 seconds apart. High tide at 1030 isn’t contributing anything to the surf prospects. Wind was light early, but the Bureau tells us that it will gradually build up from the south and be going pretty hard tomorrow morning.
All that southerly activity should push up some wind swell tomorrow, but I’d be astounded if there was a quality wave anywhere. Might be a prospect on Tuesday morning though because the forecast says the wind should weaken from around midday on Monday. I’m also liking the look of some of the longer range predictions for late in the week when we just might get a long period south pulse. Might be an idea to tentatively secure a Friday morning surf slot in your schedule…
Have yourself a great Sunday!
A cold front will move through the northeast of the state today as a strong, slow-moving high pressure system moves south of the Bight extending a ridge towards NSW.
