Sticky: Stormy Friday

Stormy Friday

Hello Friends,

Nup. As you suspected, it’s not a morning for surfing in Sydney. Rain bucketed down last night so the water looks horrible. The wind’s pushing along at 20-30 kts from the SE, so even the protected corners are getting smashed. And the swell, while big enough, is really just messy, stormy, short period wind swell (average period is around 7 seconds)

A day for getting other things done methinks.

Outlook is not good either. SE wind and all the evil that brings with it, right through to the middle of next week from the look of the latest forecasts.

H @1125, L @1740

Weather Situation
A slow-moving trough lies near the Hunter and Mid North Coasts, while a high pressure system south of Adelaide extends a ridge into the southern New South Wales coast. The trough is expected to linger over the north today, weakening during Saturday as the high becomes dominant. This high will drift slowly east over the following few days, maintaining an onshore airstream across most of the coast.
