Rainy old morning

Posted by: on May 29th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Swell is still out of the S by SSE this morning. It’s showing half the size on the MHL buoys though. On the other hand, the average period has improved to 11 seconds. The end result is chest high sets on the beach and infrequent and smaller ones at the point.

Tide was low at 0820 and will hit high at 1445.

The showers are set to ease as the day goes along, but so too is the swell.

This morning’s swell models are showing the swell height gradually dropping over the next three days. But, they also show some long period 14+ second south energy coming into play. So, while the swell height may be only in the metre to metre plus range, we could still see some fun and juicy chest plus category.

I don’t like the wind outlook, but we might get lucky for the early sessions…

Have yourself a top Tuesday!
