Beautiful morning with fun looking little SE swell at Dee Why. According to the MHL buoy, it’s mainly out of the SE at about 1.5 metres and 9 seconds apart. Low tide’s at 0950 and it comes in a metre or so to be high at 1600. Should be sunny and 24 as well. Wind is set to be north and then NW later. Swell looks highly likely to fade slowly across the day, so the sooner you’re on it, the better.
Interestingly, whilst the swell size is headed downward, the swell models are pointing to an increase in average period tomorrow. So, we could well have another tasty morning of waves.
Dee Why definitely won’t be the only place with a wave this morning, so you shouldn’t have to go far to find yourself something amusing.
Go well with your Wednesday!

A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge to northeastern New South Wales. This system will gradually weaken today, as a low pressure trough over central Australia approaches the state’s western border. Northerly winds will increase before the trough brings a southerly change to the southern coast during Thursday, continuing to the north on Friday.
