Sticky: Beautiful morning and tiny but not flat

Posted by: on November 19th, 2012


Hello Friends,

A little bit of wave energy showing at Dee Why this morning whilst the wind was still offshore. Swell at sea is out of the south at a couple metres, but the average period is still an anaemic 7 seconds. So, we’re talking knee to waist at Dee Why and probably a bit bigger at more directly exposed spots.

You better get on it though, because the southerly is due to build up soon and then to swing SE as it gets to 20+ kts later.

The good news is that the Bureau says we should see the swell go more SE and pick up a bit. The wind outlook for tomorrow isn’t red hot for tomorrow morning, but by afternoon there could be a few options in north corners as it backs off and goes NE.

Wednesday might be fun, if smallish. Swell should still be 1.5-2m from the SE and winds light with low tide around 0815. Plus it should be mostly sunny… here’s hoping!

Have yourself a top Monday one and all.

Tide is high around 1220 and despite the clear skies, the forecast is calling for a shower or two to develop and for temps to max out at a cool 21.

Weather Situation
A low pressure trough off New South Wales coast will be moving north slowly bringing a fresh to strong southwest to southeasterly airstream. The trough will weaken in the north on Tuesday as a high pressure system east of Tasmania strengthens a ridge over remainder of the coast. The next trough/front system is expected to bring another coastal southerly change on Wednesday and Thursday.
Forecast for Monday until midnight
Southerly 15 to 25 knots turning southeasterly 20 to 25 knots in the evening.
1 to 1.5 metres increasing to 2 metres by early evening.
Easterly about 1 metre becoming 1 metre from midday.
The chance of thunderstorms offshore this afternoon and evening.
Tuesday 20 November
Southeasterly 15 to 25 knots turning east to northeasterly below 10 knots in the early afternoon.
Up to 2 metres decreasing to below 1 metre during the afternoon.
Southeasterly 2 metres.
Wednesday 21 November
Variable about 10 knots becoming north to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots during the day.
Below 1 metre increasing up to 1.5 metres during the evening.
Southeasterly 2 metres.
