Back to tiny Sydney

Posted by: on May 19th, 2012


Hello Friends,

A few little waves to be had for this morning’s early risers. Those equipped with the most buoyant options will make the most out of the waist high (at best) sets. From the shape of the swell models, the morning is likely to offer the best shot at something. The energy levels are set to weaken as the day goes along, but some of the swell models (including the Bureau’s) are showing a small bump up in size for Sunday around lunchtime. Unfortunately it’ll be in the context of southerly sea breezes as well, so I’m not expecting fabulous quality.

The longer term outlook hasn’t changed much for us since yesterday’s run of the swell models. At present it would appear that the remainder of the week will be tiny or flat. There seems to be a possibility of a perk in energy toward Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning. By perk, I’m hoping for waist to shoulder high. The very long range (and thus speculative) modelling is showing a powerful looking system in the southern ocean that just might massage our shores with some solid head high plus energy late in the weekend or early next Monday…

Go well with your Saturday!

TIDES: High at 0710, low at 1300

A high pressure ridge extends across northern New South Wales, and a trough will pass over the south today. This will bring southerly winds to the southern coast today, extending to the northern coast later on the weekend. Following this, a ridge will strengthen again across the south, with winds turning northerly ahead of a cold front expected at the end of the week.
