Sticky: Not much at Dee Why… yet

Posted by: on December 19th, 2012

Catchable dribble

Hello Friends,

Was hoping for a bit more energy this morning. But instead awoke to discover that we have about a metre of ESE wind dreck which, were it not for an average period of almost 10 seconds, would be totally uncatchable. If you’re keen, Dee Why is delivering knee high with the odd waist. Not much oomph to ‘em, so I’d take the largest and floatiest option in the arsenal.

The first puffs of NE wind were making themselves felt at 0730, so the surface conditions will gradually go downhill at most places.

The Bureau tells us that we should start to see some TC Evan energy from tomorrow. The models reckon around the middle part of the day – ie, right about when the wind goes around to the SE. Blergh. However… south corners could have some sideshore but okay waves if we’re lucky. Of course the tide’ll be high mid-afternoon, so quality will be a juggling act.

The Bureau reckons the energy will last about 72 hours, there should be a few opportunities around the place with any luck.

Go well with your day!
