The Bureau says we could set a record high today, but there’s only the faintest of east wind swells lapping lightly into Sydney’s beaches this morning. The MHL buoy is showing about a metre at 6 seconds apart. Down at Dee Why around 0800 it was maybe knee high on the bomb sets. There were a few folks bobbing about in the water, but I didn’t see them moving shoreward under wave power.
Meanwhile, it was 34 down at Wollongong before 0800, so the heat will be here all too soon.
Surf outlook on the models this morning is for nothing today but just maybe a little south swell action could come our way Wednesday-Thursday. Of course there’s likely to be a fair amount of southerly with it…
Stay hydrated everyone!
