Cool, grey, rainy, heaps of SE wind

Hello Friends,

What a lovely morning. 20-25 kts of SE wind, grey skies and the odd light shower all combine to render the 3 meteres of 10 second SSE swell largely irrelevant.

A morning to stay in bed really.

It looks as though the onshores will continue pretty strongly for the next week… blergh. To the extent it matters, the swell will generally stick around in one form or another, but the wind doesn’t look like letting up at all. At this stage, there’s not even the prospect of a light breeze for the early risers.

Sigh. So it goes I guess. Gotta just hang in there. The good days are getting closer!

Pollution is likely at all beaches today

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 weaken today 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.
