Swell peaked yesterday, but there’s still some fun to be had. It’s a touch under 2 metres from the SSE at 11 seconds. The complex of mainly left peaks at the Dee Why end of the beach are firing up again and the numbers are upon them. It’s been extremely crowded out there during this swell and I think, from looking elsewhere, that it’s largely due to the fact that there other places nearby aren’t offering quite the same standard of wave.
Tide will be low at @1045 and then back to the high at @1710.
Weather should be a bit warmer and partly cloudy in the morning, but clouding up later ahead of a week of grey skies and rain.
And it looks as though our swell will fade out today (if the Bureau and the models are right). And then we shift into marginal for a few days before a major SE blow kicks up at the end of the week. With any luck, we’ll be back to passable surf conditions by the weekend. Some of the modelling is showing quite good conditions for Sunday into Monday at south spots… the surf season seems to be revving up.
Go well with your plans one and all!
ps: I went shooting yesterday and ended up at Dee Why for the morning and afternoon sessions. They’re now in the process of becoming galleries, so stay tuned…
A deep low pressure system over the southeastern Tasman Sea is moving towards New Zealand and a high pressure ridge over the northern Tasman Sea is weakening. Later on Thursday a low pressure trough will cross New South Wales coast and a low is expected to develop off the central coast by early Friday.
