High tide isn’t far off (@0940) as I write this. So everything is pretty full and going to stay that way until late morning. On the plus side, the swell energy level has improved a touch. It’s averaging nearly 2 metres from the NE at 8 seconds and the wind is supposed to stay northerly at 15-25 kts through the day. It should be sunny this morning, but there’s a 90% chance of rain this evening.
So, not amazingly hopeful or anything, but there might be a little something here and there if you look, particularly as the tide starts to drop again.
We go into a southerly regime tomorrow and while that might bump things up a touch here or there, the prospects are not great. Knee to waist plus generally I’d say.
Have yourself a good Thursday!
A cold front will bring gusty southerly change to New South Wales south coast this afternoon extending to the far north coast Friday morning. Behind the change a weak high pressure ridge will develop over the western Tasman Sea on Saturday.
