Glassy before 0900 this morning at Dee Why, but the little east swell is, well, little. Only one real peak at the southern end of the beach was picking anything up. Sets, which were breaking pretty close to shore, were about waist high. Tide’s not high until 1020 or so, which means the current conditions should prevail through noon. Swell is set to stay at about a metre or so but average period is between 7 and 8 seconds, so there’s just not much energy around. Beaches with better east exposure might be a touch bigger.
Tomorrow looks like being a bit smaller again but there might be a little pulse from the SE on Wednesday morning.
Have yourself a great day!
Tides: H @1020, L @1550
A high pressure system near New Zealand is moving east maintaining a ridge to New South Wales north coast. Later on Monday a cold front will bring west to southwesterly change to the far south coast. The change will extend to the north coast during Tuesday as a low associated with the front slows down and deepens near Tasmania. This low is expected to move very slowly east across the southern Tasman Sea over the next few days.
