Small looking

Posted by: on December 29th, 2012

Hello Friends,

It looks as though I chose a relatively good time – from a surf perspective – to be away from Sydney. The MHL Sydney buoy is showing a couple metres of 8 second SE swell whilst the wind reports indicate light SE seabreezes as of 1000. I’d say that given the numbers, the surf prospects will be biggest where the surface conditions are worst. Given the period, I imagine you might spot the odd chest to shoulder high set at the most exposed spots. Next tide is a low at 1615. THe SE’ly is set to blow all day and into tomorrow…

Gotta run! Have yourself a top old day!

Weather Situation
A trough and associated southerly change on the far north coast is moving north as a high south of the Bight extends a ridge over Victoria and northward along the NSW coast. A relatively weak cold front will cross Tasmania and move into the southern Tasman Sea today. The high will move into the Tasman Sea on Sunday and then slowly east during Monday as a trough reaches the south coast.
