Your correspondent is feeling slightly miffed. Here in southern California it’s a case of spring wavelessness, but Sydney looks like getting a whack of swell on Monday – albeit with a fair old serve of southerly for the early.
This morning’s outlook will be explored in greater detail by the Goat during his guest spot on ABC 702 at around 0730.
My guess is that he’ll mention the light westerly for you early risers as well as the possibility of finding something in the surfable range at most beaches – thanks to the 2 metres of 8 second period SE swell.
Have yourself a great Saturday!
TIDES low at 0710 high at 1315
A high centred near the Bight will move east slowly and enter the Tasman Sea next Monday. The high will generally maintain a ridge over NSW over the next few days though winds are likely to temporarily strengthen along the coast Sunday as a cold front moves across Tasmania into the Tasman Sea. Dangerous long period swell is likely to develop along the southern parts of New South Wales coast later Sunday, extending to all NSW coast on Monday.
