Sticky: Bumped up at Dee Why

Posted by: on December 5th, 2011

Hello Friends,

As the south change developed overnight, we got a little bump in swell energy and this morning saw chest high sets along the beach at Dee Why. After weeks of tiny conditions, the banks at the south end look to be pretty uniform and on the low tide they were shutting down hard more often than not. I expect it’ll be a widespread condition.

Speaking of tides, there’s not variation today on that front. First of the low day is at 1045ish and the high comes along at 1630. There’s not even a metre difference between the two.

As the tide turns the southerly should be decreasing a little.

Outlook is for more southerly to SE conditions across the coming week. That should mean a steady supply of at least something wave like, but with the unavoidable imposition of onshore conditions at most spots. Early mornings look to be the best shot for the next couple days at least.

Have yourself a top old Monday!

The high will move very slowly eastwards and weaken, forming a centre east of Tasmania on Wednesday. This high will then move slowly towards New Zealand, maintaining a ridge and east to northeasterly winds along the coast at the end of the week.
