Cool and breezy from the southerly quarters on this sunny Sunday morning in Sydney. The swell is out of the south at a couple metres with a period of 8 seconds. We’re talking wind swell obviously, so the waves are going to be biggest at spots most affected by the steady 8-10 kt of wind.
Sadly, the wind will be generally onshore all day, although as noted yesterday, it is supposed to go NE late, so there might be some junky but catchable options in the north ends where the swell will be delivering the most energy.
Tide was high at 0530 and will hit low around 1150.
The swell forecast models are looking rather bleak for our region at the moment. If they’re right, we’re in for just about nothin’ across the coming week. Hope they’re wrong, but one has to be realistic too.
Have yourself a top old Sunday!
