Weak but sunny

Posted by: on November 6th, 2011

Hello Friends,
We’re looking mighty summery out there this morning. The beach at Dee Why is ablaze with fluttering flags of a surf carnival, rubber duckies are running in and out from the beach and a knot of surfers were doing their best with the knee to waist high sets.

Wind was light and out of the north at 0830. The Bureau says it’ll stay that direction and pick up to 10-20 kts later. Swell is south but only about a metre at 7 seconds, so it’s not likely to be much above the waist high mark anywhere in Sydney. There is some long period stuff in the mix, so maybe you could get lucky every now and again.

Tide’s low at 1115 or so this morning.

Outlook is for at least a week of this dribble according to the swell forecast model interpretations this morning.

Enjoy your Sunday one and all!
