Starting my day in the soon-to-be scorching inland but we’ll be heading the right direction. Have to say though, it doesn’t look too amazing for this afternoon when we should be back to the northern beaches once more. Swell is currently around the 1.5 metre range out of the SSE. The period is showing at 11 seconds as I write this, so maybe there’ll be some little waves in some of the north corners for the late sesh.
Tide is high at 1250 so that may help for later in the day.
The long range outlook has gone all bleak this morning for us. Freda the fizzler now looks unlikely to supply us with anything of interest in Sydney. Bah.
Oh well, back to the waiting game I guess. Have yourself a top old Thursday one and all.
A high will form and move across the Tasman Sea over the next few days with an associated ridge strengthening along NSW coast. Winds will turn mostly east to northeasterly along the coast from Friday onwards, briefly interrupted by a weak southerly change on the south coast over the weekend.
