Sticky: Take the floaty-est one in your quiver

Hello Friends,

Light offshores and a small to tiny SE wind swell of about a metre at 8 seconds apart was lighting up the odd low tide peak this morning along the Dee Why to Longy stretch. And, I should imagine, various other SE spots around the Sydney region will be producing similar results. The Bureau tells us that the light and variable winds early will gradually yield to seabreezes of 10-15 kts later.

Outlook for the rest of the week remains marginal but not quite into write-it-off territory – as long as you don’t mind playing in knee to waist high conditions.

We’re set to have more NE conditions through to Thursday, but it looks as though the wind swell will stick around at about the current level.

Could be worse!

Have yourself a top old day.

TIDES: L @0605 H @1200

Weather Situation
A high pressure system centred to the west of Bass Strait is moving east, while another high over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast. This second high will be one of the dominant features in the region during the next few days as it drifts slowly towards New Zealand. Between these systems is a trough on the southern coast, which is expected to weaken later today. Another trough is expected to affect the southern coast during Thursday.
