Best early

Posted by: on January 24th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Big high tide at 0850 was looming over the surf prospects this morning. Winds were relatively light for the early, but the ocean still looked grey and lumpy for the hardy crew on it. The SE swell is around the 2 metre mark and the period is about 8 seconds. Pretty typical wind swell in other words. Skies continue mostly cloudy and the BoM tells us that once again there’s a 75% chance of a shower or two.

At Dee Why there were a few bods in the beach break scoring the odd waist to chest high set. Although it was bumpy and messy, I saw a couple folk pick up reasonably long rides. There were people at the point as well, but they were doing a lot of waiting compared to the beachy.

The long range forecasts this morning all agree that we’re in for more easterly wind swell and steady onshores through to the weekend. Size looks to stay around the 1.5-2 metre range, and periods will continue bumping up and down around the 8 second mark.

From Saturday some of the modelling is showing a pulse developing from the NE. It could be into the 3 metre range for Sunday morning, but it’s highly likely to be accompanied by stiff NE winds.

At least it’s not flat eh?

Have yourself a top old Tuesday!

Weather Situation
A slow-moving high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is directing a moist easterly airstream onto the New South Wales coast. This high is expected to move over New Zealand on Thursday as a weak cold front passes to the south. Another high is then forecast to move from the bight to the Tasman Sea, maintaining an onshore flow through to the weekend.
