Gee I wish I was going to be in Sydney today. 3 metres of east swell at 12 seconds apart… and good winds for the early, although it’ll be north corners later as the NE’r kicks in.
Am on the road, so no postcards today…
Go well and get one for me!
A weak ridge over the coast and northern ranges and a slow moving inland trough. A trough/front system will move across the state during late Thursday and on Friday before the trough deepens into a low off the south coast on Saturday. This low is expected to move rapidly to the east on Sunday as a high over the Bight extends a ridge along the coast.
