More showers coming through this morning but skies are set to clear later and wind will pick up and come around to the NE to E. Swell this morning is mainly out of the east at about 8 seconds apart. It’s a couple metres out at sea and that’s translating into waist to chest high plus at Dee Why. I’d expect a bit better than that if you were at an east swell magnet.
Should be waves around all day and indeed for the next three days.
Have yourself a great Tuesday!
TIDES: H @0745, L @1410
A high pressure system over the southwest Tasman Sea directs an east to southeast airflow over the central and northern NSW coast. The high will move slowly east over the next couple of days and extend a ridge to the central part of the coast. A low pressure trough will move through western and southern NSW on Wednesday with a strong southerly change for the south coast later in the day. The trough will reach the northeast on Thursday, weaken and become slow-moving. A strong cold front and west to southwest change is expected to affect the southeast on Friday.
