Another cool and beautiful Sydney spring morning. Winds were light early and the swell was SSE at a couple metres with a useful average period setting of 9 seconds. Tide was high at 0640 and will be back to low just before 1500. Wind should be variable this morning before finally wandering around to the S-SE by late afternoon.
So, remarkably, it looks like the Monday holiday will actually have some fun waves at south spots. Woohoo!
Dee Why was looking somewhat fat for the early, but there were chest high plus sets making their way in at reasonably regular intervals. There were a couple bods out at the point, but I didn’t see them catch anything while I was scoping it for the report.
With any luck, the surfable conditions should stick around through the day and maybe even last through to tomorrow morning.
And, that interesting stuff in the long range forecast is still there in this morning’s run of the forecast models. After going flat or near flat toward the end of the week, the super computers calculate that a strong south swell should start building on Saturday and be pretty solid (well overhead) on Sunday – although the wind outlook is for southerlies…
Have yourself a great day one and all!
Strong winds in the far south will ease this morning as a deep low to the east of Tasmania moves towards New Zealand. A high will the strengthen over southeast Australia, producing relatively light winds over NSW waters through until the middle of the week, tending easterly in the north and westerly in the south.
