Rainy, grey skies and very small Saturday

Posted by: on March 17th, 2012


Hello Friends,

Good morning to roll over and get a bit more sleep. At first light, the skies were grey and it was raining lightly. Not much wind to speak of, but the morning forecast is calling a southerly to come through the joint.

Swell out at the MHL buoy off Sydney was registering about a metre from the SE at maybe 6 seconds apart. That’s not good for much of anything. Once the southerly settles in, it should come up but of course there’ll be only a few places with anything resembling a surfable lump.

The southerly is expected to carry on through tomorrow and then on Monday it’s supposed to go SE. Oh joy.

Right now it’s looking like a weekend that will require all your reserves of keeness to get you in the water.

Longer range, the swell predictions are pointing at a potentially interesting east pulse around Wed-Thr., so at least we have something to look forward to!

Go well with your Saturday.
