Quiet but not actually dead

0900 at Dee Why beach

Hello Friends,

Swell was out of the SE at around 1.3 metres on average with a typical period of about 8 seconds. Tide was low a little after 0700 and will be high a little after 1300. Wind was light SE but is expected to swing NE by this afternoon. At Dee Why the typical wave face on a set looks to be around the waist high mark. So, not amazing or anything, but semi-do-able if you’re keen (and a reasonable number are).

Go well everyone!

Weather Situation
A low pressure trough off the New South Wales north coast is weakening, while a high pressure system near the Bight extends a ridge into the state’s west. Another weak trough will move over southern parts tonight as a cold front passes to the south, bringing a new southerly wind surge along the coast during Tuesday. Following this, the high is expected to drift slowly eastwards during the coming days, with most parts of the coast remaining in generally southerly winds until late in the week.
