Junk-inducing SE wind blowing from early, so while we do have a couple metres of east wind swell (it’s about 8 seconds apart on average), conditions under murky grey skies are not terribly attractive. But there are waves. If you don’t mind the mess factor, there are a few waist high plus sets in the mix. Wind is set to blow all day, so timing will purely be down to the tide.
Tide hits low at around 1145 and goes back to high at 1750.
Have yourself a top old Friday everybody!
A southerly airstream will dominate along NSW coast today and tomorrow in a wake of the recent change. Lingering frontal activity in the southern Tasman Sea will be associated with strong to gale force winds in the far south today and tomorrow, while a slow moving trough near Queensalnd border will trigger stronger winds in the far north during the weekend. In the mean time, a high pressure system centred near the Bight is forecast to strengthen a ridge over NSW coast through the weekend with winds gradually easing and turning north to northeasterly early next week.
