Swell’s ticked down another notch and as of 0800, it was a metre and a bit, out of the ENE at 8 seconds. Wind was lightly offshore and tide was dropping toward the low at 0930 (it’s back to high at 1615).
Waves at Dee Why beach were around the waist to chest range on sets. The Bureaus says the wind will go SE then SW later. At the same time, the swell models are indicating that the waves should stay about the same size. In fact they may even bump up slightly.
With luck the waves will stick around at about the current level through Wednesday before fading from Thursday onward as we head toward what looks as though it might be a week or more of minor to flat conditions.
Have yourself a top old Tuesday!

As the the low moves further east and weakens, winds along the north coast will gradually ease during Tuesday night. The high is expected to move over the Tasman Sea later on Wednesday.
