Yep, waves again this morning everybody. Get thee to an east swell spot and prepare to enjoy the occasional head high set for your efforts.
There were 50 plus in the water at Dee Why from the No Man’s to Kiddies. The real energy was more to the north along that stretch. Around at Collaroy Narrabeen, the swell was showing from about Mactier Street north to North Narrabeen and Little Narrabeen. Given the swell direction, pretty much everywhere will be showing something, but the more exposed places will be significantly bigger.
From the shape of the swell forecast models, it looks as though the swell peaks this morning and then fades gradually across the next 24 hours or so before really running out of gas on Monday morning. But, by Tuesday it looks as though the next south pulse could start to develop as it builds to a solid peak on Wednesday. This morning’s run of the forecasts (in some cases anyway) is pointing toward the energy lasting through to Friday. Weather may be on the ordinary side (cloudy off and on) but the wind should generally be out of the SW (strongishly). So all and all not a bad looking prospect.
Have yourself a spiffing Saturday!
TIDES: L @1030, H @1710
A complex slow moving low near Tasmania will direct a few troughs across southern New South Wales over the weekend with associated freshening westerly winds. On Monday and Tuesday, the low will shift to the southern Tasman Sea, bringing strengthening southwesterlies. By the middle of the next week, a broad high pressure ridge will strengthen over New South Wales with an airstream easing and tending southerly.
