A warm spring day coming up for Sydney. Swell is at a low ebb unfortunately. It’s showing a metre from the SSE at about 9 seconds out at sea, so while there’s nothing in the south corners, I suppose you might find a little bump for a slide at spots with optimal exposure. Tide is heading to a high at 1025.
Outlook for the rest of the work week is pretty ordinary in Sydney. But there remains hope of a pulse into the fun range for the weekend.Indeed, some of the predictions (all of which are based upon the same raw data) are pointing to very good, even exceptional conditions on Saturday (how does 3 metres at 12-13 sec with offshores sound?).
After weeks of mostly minor conditions, that would be a very good thing.
Have yourself a good Tuesday one and all.
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is slowly moving east maintaining a ridge to the northwest. A cold front preceded by increasing north to northwest winds is expected to bring west to southwesterly change along New South Wales coast during Thursday.
