Another grey and dripping morning with visibility down to about a kilometre. Swell has come around to the east. It’s about 1.5 metres on average, but the period is still a paltry 7 seconds. The Bureau says it’ll be cloudy with mist patches and drizzle increasing to periods of rain as the east south easterly (blergh!) goes from the present 10-12 kts to 20-25 kts from the east to north-east. To the extent that it matters, tide swings about two metres from a high at 0740 to the low at 1420.
I’m keeping my hopes modest for tomorrow, but I do note that the Bureau says the wind should swing W-NW around lunch time. If the NE’r picks up as predicted later today, there might be a little something still coming in as the wind changes tomorrow.
Have yourself a great Friday!
Here’s a grab from the WRL cam of south Narrabeen. Looks as though Council’s spread out all that sand from Northy lagoon…
A broad trough, which lies over inland New South Wales on Friday, will contract to the coast on Saturday before moving further east across the Tasman Sea on Sunday. A weak high pressure ridge over the coast will weaken on Saturday as the trough draws closer. Monday could see a weak ridge redeveloping over New South Wales ahead of another trough approaching from the west.
