A touch bigger than I’d expected for this morning. Sunny skies and light NW winds are combining with a couple metres of 10 second period SSE swell to deliver the odd head high set along the beach at Dee Why. The point seemed much less consistent and smaller. There should be any number of south swell spots with a fun wave today.
The swell models show the energy declining steadily through the day, but with any luck there should still be the odd waist to chest high thing on offer as we run out of light.
Looks like a summery wind regime too. Light and variable for the early risers, settling into NE seabreezes by around lunch time.
Tide peaks at 0800 and then drops pretty quickly to the low at 1400.
Given the outlook for the coming week is pretty marginal, I’d be joining the crowds this morning if I could.
Have a good one!
A high pressure system over South Australia extends a ridge across New South Wales, promoting generally light to moderate winds along the coast.
