Grey skies start the day, but so do the waves. Not big or anything, but since the energy is mainly from the east at about 9 seconds apart, there should be waist to chest high sets – with the odd plus – this morning. Tide is high at a touch before 1300 and the wind is supposed to be light all morning. So, not a bad outlook overall.
And speaking of outlook, this morning’s swell modelling points toward smaller conditions tomorrow morning, but not flat. Then the same again for Thursday and Friday before, with any luck, we start to see some Evan energy. Some diversity in the predictions beyond that point, but at least a couple are showing solid east from about Sunday through to Monday or even Tuesday morning.
Go well with your day!
A weak and slow moving trough will linger on the North Coast until early Wednesday before a northerly airstream becomes dominating ahead of an approaching trough.
